Agilent K6460S Clinical Edition TQ LC/MS System
Agilent this week launched the K6460S Clinical Edition TQ LC/MS system, a triple quadrupole liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry system designed to improve in vitro diagnostic workflows in clinical labs. The system is listed as a Class I medical device with the US Food and Drug Administration and includes the clinical edition of Agilent MassHunter software to enable an easy and intuitive submission-to-reporting workflow. TQ LC/MS increases the specificity, selectivity, and accuracy of many clinical diagnostic assays compared to traditional binding assays, Agilent noted in a statement. The platform also received approval from China's National Medical Products Administration in January.
