SCIEX’s X500R QTOF system is easy to operate, scalable to meet varying workflows and delivers accurate results

Today, SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, announced the launch of the new X-Series mass spectrometry (MS) platform. This revolutionary MS platform introduces an entirely new industrial design and is comprised of customized models, each fully-loaded with improved, easy to use software, methods and libraries custom-designed for targeted customer applications. The first model, the X500R, was designed exclusively for routine food, environmental and forensic testing labs based on extensive customer input.

High resolution MS technology is still not widely adopted by routine testing labs due to lack of robustness and software ill adapted to users' needs, making operation challenging and delivering complex and often unreliable results. The X500R overcomes these inadequacies with workflows that are easy to deploy for routine labs in a system balanced for high performance, ease of use, and reliability, so labs can adopt high resolution MS to collect clear, confident results without making performance trade-offs.

The X-Series family of HRMS systems delivers intelligent, comprehensive models. Each system is designed to meet specific needs of targeted end users. The X-Series is driven by the all new SCIEX OS software, a completely redesigned operating software boasting a single, simple user interface to acquire data, process and review results, and easy to understand reports. The breadth of data acquisition capabilities has been extended to include SWATH™ Acquisition, MRMHR acquisition, information dependent high resolution MS acquisition (IDA), and high speed MS/MS scanning. The ease of serviceability will ensure uninterrupted operation of the instrument and maximize uptime for the lab. The system is designed to keep pace with a lab's growth and will evolve as the lab's needs evolve. The high performance X500R instrument is balanced across key criteria and designed to accentuate the features routine testing labs have been asking for. These features include:

> Balance: reliable results delivered through MS/MS speed and library database
> Scalability: multiple workflow capacity in one system
> Productivity: new algorithms, diagnostics and tuning tools

"Innovation starts with understanding the needs of our customers and delivering products that create value. The X500R is the result of extensive routine user input and is unique in many ways, from its modern design for easy serviceability aimed at maximizing uptime to its legendary Turbo V™ Source for performance." said Jean-Paul Mangeolle, President of SCIEX. "Most importantly, the X500R continues the SCIEX tradition of outstanding performance combined with superior software. We are also introducing the new SCIEX OS, with full data review and analytics in one, improved algorithms and new user interface designed for enhanced productivity. We believe that routine users in food, environmental and forensics testing labs will appreciate the significant improvements we are bringing to market."

SCIEX is also hosting a worldwide virtual conference event the following week, which will include demonstrations, discussions and presentations, and a press presentation.
