Quattro Premier LC/MS Resource Page




In EVE we have a Waters-Micromass Quattro Premier triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. This is designed for use with liquid sample inlet device, generally an HPLC or UPLC. For this reason, it is commonly referred to as an LC/MS (liquid chromotograph - mass spectrometer). This instrument is equipped with electrospray (ESI) and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI). Currently it is linked to our Acquity UPLC. There is also some useful documentation on the Quattro Micro page.
