Set a New Standard for System Suitability Testing

Ensure Your LC-MS/MS Performance Meets Your Standards

Why use a generic performance measure when your workflow is specific?

Most LC-MS performance testing methods are developed based on generic laboratory conditions.

SCIEX Essential LC-MS Performance Kits are an all-in-one testing solution aligned to your everyday assays. Kits are available for the following quantitative workflows:

  • Food & Environmental Testing (Pesticides)
  • Clinical Toxicology
  • Peptide Quantitation
  • Small Molecule Quantitation (Pharma)

With these kits, test your system for:

  • Compound-specific chemistries, so you know your results are representative of real-world performance
  • HPLC column from Phenomenex for your sample type, to ensure your LC is separating properly
  • Step-by-step protocol to set up your instrument, easily run the test and assess the results
  • Kit methods scan in both positive and negative MRM modes to best reflect your workflow
