The new B version of the Agilent 6410 Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer features polarity switching scans every 500 msec, allowing complex mixtures of compounds with strong fragmentation in positive and negative ion mode to be analyzed in a single run. The Agilent 6410B doubles the number of Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) scans that can be performed in a given time segment and also increases the maximum number of MRMs per method to more than 10,000. Users can create more efficient methods to analyze more compounds in a shorter timeframe.
