11Dynamic MRM groups MRMs in Retention Windows Dynamic MRM creates powerful quantitative methods by grouping MRMs in retention time windows instead of time segments.Dynamic MRM methods are created by importing compound specific MRMs and retention times from a Fast Track Data Base or worksheetDynamic MRM supports up to 4,000 MRMS for all 6400 Series Triple QuadsDynamic MRM also supports polarity switching

The biggest advantage of using tMRM to generate these product ion spectra (rather than conventional product ion scanning instruments), is that acquiring all ten of the MRM transitions which make up this spectrum takes about 20 ms, where a typical product ion scan on a trap or TOF instrument takes about 200 ms. The faster cycle time for qualitative analysis using tMRM acquisition means that more data points are acquired across each peak, and the quantitative data acquired is more sensitive, robust, and accurate.76.091.1105.1132.1171.1334.2

216420 SummaryDENVER (American Society for Mass Spectrometry conference), June 6, 2011The new Agilent 6420 Triple Quad LC/MS System is a workhorse triple quad designed to be readily upgradable to the higher-performance 6430 and 6460 instruments.The new 6420 is more productive than the previous 6410 model with faster electronics and new software features. Our popular dynamic MRM solution for grouping ion transitions by retention time has been enhanced with the addition of triggered MRM for simultaneous compound confirmation.The Agilent 6420 is well suited for both routine and complex analyses such as toxicology and drugs of abuse testing. It is designed for round-the-clock operation to support labs running a large number of samples.The 6420 replaces Agilent's popular Model 6410 triple quad. The 6420 maintains method and data compatibility with existing 6410 methods. The 6420 can be easily incorporated into high-productivity laboratories with multiple 6410 systems.
