For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
The source on the X500R QTOF System can be used in atmospheric-pressure chemical ionization (APCI) mode, but a different probe with a twin electrode must be installed. In addition, a different APCI tuning solution must be used that is available for purchase from SCIEX (part number 5042915; see table below for ordering information).
The APCI probe (part number 5057681) is shipped when the instrument is shipped, so it should already be on-hand. But it is available for purchase separately if needed. (See below for a picture of the probe.)
