Delivers high-sensitivity performance with greater noise reduction

  • The GCMS-TQ8050 NX system reduces noise without compromising sensitivity

    The signal-to-noise ratio is often used to measure the sensitivity of a GC/MS instrument, and it is important to increase signal intensity and decrease noise for high sensitivity analysis. Featuring OFF-AXIS Ion Optics, the GCMS-TQ8050 NX system removes noise without sacrificing sensitivity. A shield in the secondary electron multiplier reduces noise from outside the detector. In addition, two overdrive lenses in front of the electron multiplier decrease random noise from helium or argon and improve signal-to-noise ratio.

User-friendly triple quad operation with smart method development tools

  • User-friendly triple quad operation with smart method development tools
  • Quickly and accurately review data and report analysis results

    The GCMS-TQ8050 NX system incorporates user-friendly technologies that help you to perform triple quad analysis with confidence and ease. The Smart MRM (multiple-reaction monitoring) tool assists users in creating methods for ultra-trace analysis and ensures high sensitivity by automatically determining all optimum transitions and collision energies. It seamlessly integrates methods into the Smart Database, which logs compound information, records transitions and registers a retention index. LabSolutions Insight software improves data analysis and provides multi-analyte data and status review and color-coded quantitative flags.

Simplified maintenance to reduce downtime and operational costs

  • Decreased maintenance frequency and extended service life add value

    The GCMS-TQ8050 NX system is equipped with a contaminant resistant ion source that is easy to clean and designed for extended service life, ensuring reliable analysis for many years. Minimizing detector loads during analysis substantially prolongs the detector’s lifespan, reducing the need for frequent maintenance and maximizing uptime. Thanks to the system’s ultra-high-sensitivity performance, you can significantly reduce injection volumes, which extends the service life of inserts, columns and other consumables to reduce maintenance frequency and costs.
