Agilent Ultivo Triple Quadrupole LC/MS

Unbelievably Powerful Remarkably Small

Meet the new Agilent Ultivo Triple Quadrupole LC/MS.
This little game changer is reshaping the future of mass spectrometry.

Decades of innovation have brought us into a new era of mass spectrometry with the design of Agilent’s revolutionary LC/MS Triple Quadrupole. Ultivo is packed full of the same power and accuracy you’ll find in the big guys but at a fraction of the size.

It’s on a transformative mission to reshape expectations, redefine capabilities, and reassess what’s possible when small meets powerful.

Ultivo LC/TQ is here to prove that small is big again, with key enabling technologies allowing you to:

Maximize Laboratory Real Estate

The footprint of Ultivo LC/TQ is 70% smaller than the similar LC/TQ with all of the power of the big guys. You can triple your lab's capacity in the same space.

Optimize Lab Technician Productivity

The VacShield enables lab personnel to quickly and seamlessly maintain the MS, freeing up valuable time to focus on science.

Reduce Instrument Downtime

Intelligent diagnostics use intuitive readbacks to pinpoint issues quickly.

Produce Better Results

The Cyclone Ion Optic gets more ions to the detector. More ions means better, more reproducible results.

Increase Sample Throughput

The Vortex Collision Cell combines faster scanning with the confidence you need to do more, and quickly.

Advance Efficiency

The efficiency-optimized Infinity II HPLC series portfolio is the perfect partner for high-throughput mass spectrometry. 

See how Ultivo LC/TQ can transform your lab.
