Confidence in results with ease and efficiency

  • Thermo Scientific™ TurboFlow™ technology can automate many sample cleanup tasks, greatly reducing error-prone manual steps that result in variability
  • TurboFlow technology removes matrix interferences and captures analytes of interest, minimizing ion suppression and improving subsequent mass spectrometry results
  • Integrated syringe pumps deliver accurate, reproducible mobile phase flow and gradients
  • Dual HPLC channels are intelligently optimized to run identical or different tests in parallel, maximizing utilization of the mass spectrometer and improving turnaround time and productivity

Intended use

The Prelude MD HPLC is intended to chromatographically isolate and separate analytes, such as drugs and endogenous compounds from a sample solution and introduce these separated drugs or compounds into a detector. For in vitro diagnostic use only by trained, qualified laboratory personnel.

Indications for use

The Prelude MD HPLC will be used by clinical diagnostic laboratories as a component of a laboratory developed test (LDT) method or workflow.

Contraindications of use

For in vitro diagnostic applications only. The Prelude MD HPLC is to be operated only with hardware or software labeled for in vitro diagnostic use.

Limitations of use
The Prelude MD HPLC is compatible with the following Thermo Fisher Scientific instruments:

  • TSQ Quantis MD Series Triple-Stage Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer
  • TSQ Altis MD Series Triple-Stage Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer

For a current list of other compatible instruments please contact the manufacturer. As a component of an LDT method or workflow, validation of the LDT method or workflow is the responsibility of the clinical laboratory.

For in-vitro diagnostic use. Specifications subject to change. Availability of product in each country depends on local regulatory marketing authorization status.
