Convert AccuTOF™ LC into Nano-LC/MS System: An Application of Peptide Analysis


Nano-LC/MS has demonstrated many advantages, including lower sample consumption, higher mass sensitivity and less matrix effect. Here, we introduce a very simple method to convert regular AccuTOF™ LC system into a nano-LC/MS system without high cost. An application of peptide analysis was used as an example to test the nano-LC/MS system. The RSD of retention time for gradient elution is less than 1%.

What you need

  • AccuTOF time-of-flight mass spectrometer (JEOL)
  • Agilent 1100 HPLC with binary pump (JEOL or Agilent)
  • NanoESI source (JEOL)
  • 6 port external loop sample injector (Valco, part number C2-0006)
