Overview

The Agilent 6460 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS delivers superior sensitivity for trace level analysis with performance specifications in Signal-to-Noise ratio (S/N) and Instrument Detection Limit (IDL). IDL is a rigorous, statistically based metric that indicates practical sensitivity performance of your quantitative assays. The Agilent 6460 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS achieves sensitivity and resolution specifications with autotune.
