Enhanced Sensitivity Leads to New GC-MS/MS Possibilities
The GCMS-TQ8050 features a new highly efficient detector and three noise reduction technologies that enable femtogram-level quantitative analysis.
Also, the increased instrument robustness and safety provide dramatically improved reliability for ultra trace analysis.
A new detector with better amplification performance maximizes the benefits of the OFF-AXIS Ion Optics, which offers both high ion transmission performance and outstanding noise elimination performance. These state-of-the-art technologies enable the system to reliably detect ultra trace quantities of ions, down to the femtogram level, achieving the world’s highest*sensitivity levels.

In addition to high sensitivity, the system offers highly robust performance. The contamination-resistant ion source and the new detector with over five times longer service life ensure reliable, long-term analysis. An oil-free pump that can be operated for three years without maintenance is also available.
A new turbomolecular pump with higher evacuation performance achieves a superior vacuum state in the MS unit. This results in higher sensitivity and stability and helps improve analysis accuracy for ultra-trace concentration levels.
Using the ultra-fast analysis technology (UFsweeper) offered in existing models, the system can simultaneously analyze samples using multiple modes, such as high-speed scanning and scan/MRM modes.
The Smart MRM technology that optimizes sensitivity helps accurately create methods for ultra-trace analysis and ensures high sensitivity for MRM measurements. In addition, the enhanced accuracy control function provided by LabSolutions Insight software improves the reliability of analyzing data acquired from simultaneous multicomponent analysis of ultra-trace components.
