Article number: 91967

ENVIRONMENT

  • Vion IMS QTof
  • UNIFI 1.9.4

ANSWER

1. The concentration of LeuEnk for lock mass should be 50-100 pg/ul.

2. In the Vion IMS QTof instrument method, on the Options tab, make the following selections (only the number of intervals can be modified according to the length of the run):

3. On the Events tab, ensure that all events that are related to lock mass are removed. Keep only the information for LC flow state.
