The current instrument data file (current.dat file) for Triple Quad™ or QTRAP® LC-MS/MS 7500 Systems is backed up to a SCIEX OS Software folder located at C:\ProgramData\SCIEX\MassSpec\InstrumentData\YYYYMMDDHHMMSS.
Yes, the SCIEX QTRAP® or TripleQuad™ 7500 LC-MS/MS Systems can operate without the E Lens™ Technology active. Each QTRAP and TripleQuad 7500 System comes with a blanking plug that can be inserted should there be a need to operate without the E Lens Technology.
The ion sources for the SCIEX QTRAP® and TripleQuad™ 6500+ and 7500 LC-MS/MS Systems are not interchangeable. The OptiFlow® Pro Ion Source cannot be used on the QTRAP or TripleQuad 6500+ Systems. Likewise, the IonDrive™ Turbo V, Turbo V™, and OptiFlow Ion Sources cannot be used with the QTRAP and TripleQuad 7500 Systems.
To set up a MRM transitions where the Q1 mass for one compound is identical to a second compound in Analyst® software, change the Q1 mass of the second compound by 0.1 -0.05 Da. After making this adjustment, the software will accept the duplicate mass for Q1.
This article explains how to resolve the issue of low sensitivity on a Triple Quadrupole or QTRAP instrument due to an incorrect CEM value by manually optimizing the CEM detector parameter in the Analyst software
