Hi, new to LC-MS, and we're relocating a 6530 Q-TOF to my site- but the question has come up about running the vacuum pump in the same room as the MS (which is going to be located next to a chemical fume hood, and is in a large open lab space).


Is it sufficient to have the pump exhaust vented into the fume hood? Should we avoid all other vacuum pumps in the vicinity of the MS (we have a lyophilizer within about 20' of the intended MS location).


thanks! Scott
