Flexible. With the same hardware setting and configuration, the method can handle whole blood, for CsA, TAC, SIR, and EVE and plasma for MPA and MPAG.
Accurate. MPAG, usually present at significant concentrations, does not interfere with the MPA quantitation results.
Fully under control of the Analyst acquisition software. All the peripheral modules are under control of the fullinclusive Acquisition Method.
Effective in reducing the solvent consumption. The programmed operation of the LC peripheral units enables the high flow-rate regime in the firstdimension LC just for the time needed for the sample clean up.
