Specifications include, but are not limited to:Successful vendor shall provide the City of Philadelphia Medical Examiners Officewith a Liquid Chromatograph and Xevo TQD Mass Spectrometer System in accordance withSections 2 and 5 of this Invitation and Bid.PRODUCT # DESCRIPTION176002481 Xevo TQDThe following items are included as part of the standard system:Z SPRAY" API interface Dual orthogonal interface for robust LC/MSElectrospray (ESI) inlet probe for efficient ionisation of a wide range of compoundsESCi" ionisation capability rapid switching source for both ESI and APCI in the samerun IntelliStart" fluidics Automated tuning, calibration and method developmentTargetLynx" Application manager (requires license as provided with PC, below)OpenLynx" Application manager (requires license as provided with PC, below)The standard system does not include the following items, which must be specifiedseparately:Additional inlet probes and ion source options (detailed below).Acquisition PC data system and monitorAdditional Workstation data system terminals.Printers.Additional MassLynx" options (detailed below).Vacuum backing pump options (rotary or oil-free combinations)HPLC systems or other inlet options.1. Z SPRAY" API INTERFACEThis instrument is equipped with an atmospheric pressure ionisation (API) LCinterface. The source and spraying elements are visible through a transparent windowin the enclosure and are easily accessible via a quick-release mechanism. The sourceelements may be wiped clean in situ or removed for cleaning without the need for toolsand without breaking vacuum. The nebulized spray is orientated orthogonally andpositioned off axis for maximum source longevity and analyser protection against'dirty' samples. The source also includes facilities for de-clustering ions formed atatmospheric pressure. Positive and negative capability is included. Positive ion,negative ion and ESCI" capability is available as standard (allowing rapid switchingbetween ESI and APCI, positive and negative in the same run). All source voltages andgases are under data system control.2. INTELLISTART" FLUIDICSThe instrument is equipped with an on-board infusion system capable of deliveringreference solutions from 2 built-in vial locations. The on-board fluidics system iscontrolled by the IntelliStart software to provide automated instrument setup, masscalibration and method development. The reference solutions are delivered via switching valves for either direct orcombined (into an LC flow) infusion into the API source. The valves can in addition beprogrammed from the software to function as an LC flow divert. If required, thefluidics can be controlled manually via the system Console.3. TANDEM QUADRUPOLE ANALYSERThe instrument is equipped with two high performance quadrupole mass analysers withinter-element beam focusing and a mass range of 2-2000 amu. Pre-filters are fitted tothe mass analysers to maximise resolution and transmission. The pre-filters alsoeliminate the need for cleaning of the quadrupole mass analysers. All lens andanalyser voltages are digitally controlled. Analyser parameters may be programmed withrespect to mass for optimal performance. Analyser parameters used for data acquisitionare automatically recorded and appended to the relevant data file.4. COLLISION CELLThe collision cell can be operated as a high efficiency travelling wave (T-Wave)device for collision induced dissociation. The travelling wave enables rapid cellclearance and refill for fast MRM transition switching while maintaining optimumsignal to noise.RADAR":An information-rich acquisition approach that allows you to collect highly specificquantitative MRM data for target compounds while providing additional spectral data tohelp visualize all other components in the sample.5. VACUUM SYSTEMClean, differentially pumped, automated vacuum system comprising:Air-cooled Pfeiffer splitflow turbomolecular drag pump evacuating both the source &analyser. Vacuum read backs and system vent/pump cycles are digitally monitored andcontrolled, to provide total software control and ensure fail-safe operation in theevent of power failure.6. DETECTORThe instrument is equipped with a low noise dynolite photomultiplier detector. Thedetector is positioned after the second analyzer. A High Voltage conversion dynode andphosphor are positioned at 90 off-axis to the analyser for the elimination of neutralnoise. The detector features novel, integral focusing optics, which provides adetection efficiency approaching 100% for single ions. The photomultiplier is enclosedin its own vacuum envelope for long life. The detector operates in both positive andnegative ion mode, which can be switched rapidly under software digital control.
