Quotient Sciences (formerly Arcinova) completes installation of the Sciex 6600 T-TOF system equipped with an Exion LC front end and Sciex BioTool software, increasing LC-MS capacity.

With these tools, the Company adds capacity for not only the quantitation, confirmation, and characterization of large biological molecules. Unlike other mass spectrometer systems on site, this system allows for the rapid characterization of the intact masses of large biological molecules and at the same time can accurately quantify them in difficult matrices. 

This type of instrument is increasingly in demand across the pharma and biotech industry as clients with new biological entities, such as antibody-drug conjugates, seek answers to increasingly complex analytical problems.

The Sciex 6600 T-TOF system can also be used for routine quantitation of molecules, increasing the Company's bioanalytical capacity for clients. The combination of this system with BioTool and other software platforms and online databases allows for the identification and confirmation of proteins in sample mixtures.
