Varian, Inc. (NasdaqGS: VARI) announced today the availability of a nano-LC (liquid chromatography) system as an option for Varian's 920-MS Triple Quadrupole Fourier Transform Mass Spectrometer (TQ-FTMS). The Varian 216-LC, combined with the 920-MS, offers increased sensitivity and more consistent data to researchers involved in proteomics research. The 216-LC is supplied to Varian under an OEM agreement with Proxeon A/S.

The 216-LC employs a "splitless" design that delivers nanoliter flows to a mass spectrometer without discarding a large fraction of the solvent. More precise mixing of binary gradients, controlled by one flow sensor for each mobile phase, ensures reproducible gradients and better retention time precision. An integrated, temperature controlled, low-sample-loss autosampler enhances productivity, and minimizes transfer time to the separation column even at nanoliter flow rates while keeping the total footprint of the system small.

"Nanospray capabilities make the Varian 920-MS an exceptionally powerful tool for proteomics research," said Martin O'Donoghue, Senior Vice President, Scientific Instruments, Varian, Inc. "In an area where sample quantities can be limited and difficult to obtain, we have made it easier for life scientists to gather more data from minute amounts of material."
