Thermo Fisher Scientific Extends its GC/MS Product Portfolio with Introduction of Highly Sensitive and Versatile GC Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer

Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announces the launch of the ultra-sensitive TSQ Quantum(TM) GC gas chromatograph triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. Developed for use in environmental, food, toxicology, pharmaceutical and clinical research laboratories, the system allows industry leading levels of sensitivity, selectivity and simultaneous quantification and structural confirmation through its innovative scan function, Quantitation-Enhanced Data-Dependent MS/MS (QED-MS/MS), at the lowest limits of quantitation. The system offers the ability to switch between GC and LC modes, offering an extremely flexible system. This system will be displayed at the downtown Marriott Ballroom 5, June 3-7, 2007 from 7:00-10:00 PM during the 55th Annual ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantum GC is the most sensitive and versatile GC triple quadrupole mass spectrometer instrument available on the market. The GC-MS/MS extends the TSQ Quantum portfolio, achieving higher sensitivity and lower detection limits making it ideally suited for regulated environments. The TSQ Quantum GC delivers high sensitivity with Highly Selective Reaction Monitoring (H-SRM) and lowest limits of quantitation. The H-SRM capability allows the quantitation of hundreds of compounds in a single run for multi-residue screening, while the zero cross-talk collision cell helps in the elimination of false positives.

The system consists of a TSQ Quantum triple quadrupole mass spectrometer, TRACE GC Ultra(TM) and TriPlus autosampler, and is configured with Thermo Scientific Xcalibur(TM) software. Xcalibur is the most powerful and robust data system available, delivering a unique combination of functionality, system control and ease of use. It also contains a built-in audit trail to ensure compliance with laboratory SOPs and quality programs.

In addition, the TSQ Quantum GC includes application-specific software such as Thermo Scientific LCQUAN software, designed to offer scientists workflow-oriented approaches to GC-MS/MS analyses.

The TSQ Quantum GC completes the company’s GC/MS product line by offering a new level of selectivity and performance between the PolarisQ(TM) ion trap GC/MS and the DFS High Resolution Magnetic sector GC/MS.
