UPC2 Standards Kit for Qualification [186006829]

The UPC2 Standards Kit for Qualification is intended to be used for verification of UPC2 performance. The performance kit contains standards appropriate for Detector Linearity & Sensitivity, Injector Linearity & Accuracy, Detector Noise and Drift, Carryover, Gradient Performance, FlowRate Linearity and Accuracy, ABPR Test, and Wavelength Accuracy.

This kit is designed for use by a Waters certified engineer or user as part of a performance maintenance or qualification activity.  Protocols in the use of this kit are available via the purchase of Waters qualification services or self directed qualification training and license.  

The UPC2 Standards Kit for Qualification kit contains:

•eight (8) Ampules (10 mL each): 0.1, 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2, 1.5,1.7, 10 mg/mL caffeine in IPA;

•one (1) ampule with 10 mL of 0.5 μg/mL caffeine in IPA; one (1) ampule with 10 mL of 0.1 mg/mL caffeine in 90:10 heptane:IPA;

•one (1) ampule with 10 mL of 1 mg/mL coumarin, 1 mg/mL flavone, 2 mg/mL caffeine, 1 mg/mL thymine and 2 mg/mL prednisone in 88:12 IPA:water;

•one (1) 10 mL ampule of 90:10 IPA: water;

•one (1) 10 mL ampule of 0.4% toluene in methanol;

•one (1) 10 mL ampule of 0.004 mg/mL caffeine in 90:10 water: acetonitrile;

•one (1) 10 mL ampule of 10 g/L erbium perchlorate in water.

Store at room temperature.

System Performance Standards Key

Set Up

Setup standards are used upon installation of a new system, start-up of a system which has been idle for a period of time, or to re-start a system that has been moved to a new location. These standards may include multiple components within a kit which allow step by step setup and calibration, or they can be single mixtures which will enable a full system assessment and initialization.

Calibration

These standards can be used for instrument calibration. Calibration is usually performed at a frequency that minimizes the risk of being out of calibration, in addition to major events suc h as when the instrument is moved and upon any major repair. Calibration can be confirmed as often as your standard operating procedures recommend. Look for solutions to calibrate your MS mass accuracy and resolution, UV detector linearity, UV and Fluorescence detector wavelength accuracy, injector accuracy and precision, and solvent system flow rate accuracy.

Performance

Your system is comprised of many interdependent components working together. An issue with any one component can produce erroneous final results. All components performing correctly will produce results within an expected variability. Some of the system components include mobile phase, column, tubing, pumping, injecting, temperature controlling, detecting, data collection rate, and integration
parameters. An issue in any one of the components listed can affect your result.
 
Performance Check Standards should be utilized on a routine basis. This includes anytime a column is changed, a method is changed, the instrument is moved, or confirmation of system performance is desired. Confirming the performance of your system can be done on a system basis with suitability standards or per individual instrument component. Benchmark performance should be established after
calibration and confirmed regularly.

Tuning

These Mass Spectrometry solutions are used routinely and are available for every ionization mode. Use the solution to optimize the mass spectrometer setting for optimal signal either manually or through Intellistart.

Hazardous

This product contains hazardous material which requires special freight handling. Additional charges may apply.
