The Beckman Coulter P/ACE MDQ Diode Array Detector Module, for use with the Beckman Coulter P/ACE MDQ Capillary Electrophoresis System, allows real time display, collection and analysis of electropherograms from up to four different wavelengths simultaneously with all wavelengths selected within a scan range extractable for integration after the run. Diode-array provides high resolution spectral scanning detection for capillary electrophoresis. Capillary electrophoresis generates peak efficiencies much greater than HPLC making scanning with traditional "fast-scanning" detectors impractical. Diode-array detection provides high quality spectral information without compromising resolution.
The exceptional spectral resolution provided allows library search algorithms to more accurately identify a compound even with large analyte concentration differences. With 32 Karat™ Software, four channels of data can be viewed, collected and analyzed in real-time. While any wavelength in the scan range may be viewed during a run and selected for extraction and analysis after the run. This allows an operator to make methods development decisions in real time as all data may be accessed.
