Waters' proprietary manufacturing processes for the cartridges and multi-well plates are optimized to increase flow reproducibility when using positive pressure or vacuum manifolds so that processing times are more predictable. What's more, for added assurance every batch of sorbent for Oasis PRiME MCX Cartridges and Multi-Well Plates is put through a well-defined, generic, four-step phospholipid removal protocol during the quality control testing process.Oasis PRiME MCX Cartridges and 96-Well Plates are now available from Waters worldwide. Oasis PRiME MCX joins Oasis PRiME HLB, Ostro ™, Sep-Pak ®, Oasis HLB and Oasis Mixed Mode IEX in Waters market leading portfolio of sample preparation products. For more information: www.waters.com/prime Sample Preparation for High Quality Results Over the last decade, analytical instrument technology has evolved to the point where limits of detection (LODs) are as low as they have ever been. LC-MS instruments are much more capable of detecting and identifying minute concentrations of sample constituents than ever before. Even so, sample constituents can go undetected and those that aren't detected, aren't identified and quantified. Therefore sample preparation has never more been more important than it is today for getting high-quality LC-MS results. A key to increasing the signal intensity and sensitivity of a mass spectrometer is to remove unwanted sample components - lipids and pigments from a blood or plasma sample for example - that interfere with the signal response of the sample analytes being measured. The removal of matrix interferences from samples is also a proven sure-fire way to prolong column life and the service life of a mass spectrometer.
