Laboratory Manager: Method Developer

As the manager of a clinical laboratory, you need reliable, cost-effective solutions that provide timely results to aid physicians in their patient diagnoses. Increasingly, clinical laboratories have been turning to LC-MS/MS for the improvements in specificity, selectivity, sensitivity and ability to multiplex. Having mass spec in house allows you to quickly get the critical answers that the doctors need. Whether you need sample preparation kits, instrumentation, or software, SCIEX Diagnostics offers solutions that are robust, easy to learn and can reduce the hidden costs of re-runs and dilutions from sample interferences.

Our support doesn’t end with the placement of the instrument. From training programs to comprehensive clinical service plans, SCIEX will ensure rapid implementation and optimized operation and keep you running with maximum uptime. With flexible financing options, it’s also surprisingly affordable.

Method Developer: 

With an ever-growing demand for assays that are more reliable, accurate and robust, LC-MS/MS has become a vital tool for laboratorians and method developers. Compared to traditional methods, mass spec is capable of higher sensitivity, greater specificity, and wider applicability. At SCIEX, we consider it our job to enable you to do yours, by providing the right tools.

SCIEX Diagnostics instruments are rugged, industry-proven LC-MS/MS devices that can handle the demands of the clinical laboratory. The systems are sensitive and specific for the analytes most commonly requested in screening programs and routine testing in a number of key areas of clinical diagnostics. Whether you are looking for a workhorse instrument or the highest performance, SCIEX Diagnostics has an LC-MS/MS system to meet the current and future needs of your lab.

For added versatility, the QTRAP® system delivers up to 100-fold increase in full-scan sensitivity over basic triple quadrupole instruments. The scanning speed and sensitivity of this instrument enable unique workflows, allowing the user to acquire quantitative and structural information in a single injection – an unequivocal advantage when developing homebrews.

Strengthen your daily routine with our powerful, easy-to use, workflow-driven software solutions. Analyst® MD Software is designed to enable automatic optimization of all instrument parameters for your specific compounds making method development straightforward. Cliquid® MD Software and MultiQuant™ MD Software provide simplified user interfaces for the daily user once your method is put into production. Providing expert results – even for non-mass spec experts.

Mass Spec Operator:

Getting the right result the first time should be fast, and the analysis should be easy to run and to learn. LC-MS/MS has become an important tool in the clinical laboratory because it runs the tests that cannot be accurately performed with other methods. We know that getting a new instrument or method up and running needs to be as stress free as possible.

That is why SCIEX solutions include the instruments and software that enable your work. Robust instruments with easy maintenance will help you to focus on delivering patient results to clinicians, not the device. Our software is clean and simple with step-by-step workflows, straightforward batch building, simple data analysis and rapid report creation, all of which is easy to learn for even novice users.

As a SCIEX Diagnostics customer you have access to a world-class customer support organization. Wherever you are, we're there with you as a trusted partner to answer questions, provide solutions, and maximize lab productivity.

Be assured of accurate and clear results again and again. Let SCIEX Diagnostics be the workhorse for your lab.

 

Immediate benefits include:  

  • High confidence in results: unlike conventional immunoassay methods, LC/MS/MS enables highly-selective and specific analysis of multiple compounds in a single run, leading to more confidence in results and opening up to new assay development.
  • Fast ROI: reducing operating and labor costs with simplified sample preparation and increased throughput, mass spectrometric-based assays will generate significant time and cost savings.
  • High instrument uptime: as a trusted partner, AB SCIEX supports you with rugged, robust instrumentation and worldwide service and support.
