Four-channel HPLC increases productivity and efficiency of clinical sample separations

The channels can run identical or different LC-MS assays simultaneously

The Prelude LX-4 MD HPLC quadruples the productivity of a single-channel HPLC using four parallel channels

Clinical laboratories requiring high-throughput separations for their LC-MS assays now have access to a new four-channel, high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system that increases the productivity and efficiency of clinical sample separations.

Listed with the FDA as a Class I medical device for general clinical use, the Thermo Scientific Prelude LX-4 MD HPLC quadruples the productivity of a single-channel HPLC using four parallel channels that deliver up to four separations in a single instrument, streamlining LC-MS workflows and reducing mass spectrometer idle time. The four channels can run identical or different LC-MS assays simultaneously, which provides flexibility for varying clinical separations and maximizes mass spectrometer utilisation.

'We are strongly committed to bringing the advantages of LC-MS to the clinical market,' said Bradley Hart, Director of Market Development for Thermo Fisher Scientific. 'The Prelude LX-4 MD is one of the first products within a broader initiative to make sample separations and mass spectrometry more useful and accessible to the clinician.'
