Key Points to Consider when Purchasing Lab Technology

In one of Sciex latest posts titled: Key Points to Consider when Purchasing Forensic Lab Technology, Philip Taylor discusses a recent report on that refers to analysis carried out using a Sciex QTRAP 5500 linear ion-trap mass spectrometer.

The article written by Bjoern Mossmann, Nadine Roth and Voker Auwarter includes a comprehensive analysis using an LC-MS/MS to prove that finding cannabinoids in hair does not necessarily mean cannabis consumption.  

Following on from his analysis, Philip Taylor raises the question: how do you choose the right technology for your lab? 

His article highlights several key points for consideration if your analysis involves mass spectrometry, these are:

Price - Stay on budget while being sure the instrumentation is dependable

Reliability - Can you prep your samples and run a method without interruption?

How many samples can you run? - Do you have the solution to address the increasing demand of your lab?

Support - What type of after sales service and support is available to you?

All of these points are key to ensuring the best possible results for you and your lab, and this approach should be applied to all equipment, even down to the generator coupled with your LC-MS.
