Instructions on how to check the level of calibrant in your LC/MS system, and refill the calibrant bottle if necessary.
Checking the level of calibrant should be performed weekly, or more often if frequent instrument tuning is required.
Steps to Follow
Tips: Figure 1 shows a Q-TOF system with both a calibrant bottle (right), and a bottle for reference mass solution (left). 6100 and 6400 series LC/MS instruments have one calibrant bottle.
