The Shimadzu triple-quad GCMS-TQ8050 NX is capable of performing unprecedented quantitative GC-MS/MS analyses of ultra-trace amounts, down to the femtogram level. Equipped with a new, highly efficient detector and three forms of noise-reduction technologies, the TQ8050 NX has never been more important in industries such as food safety, cannabis testing, forensics, and more.



  • Enhanced sensitivity that detects ultra-trace concentrations not previously possible
  • Auto startup, shutdown, and tuning checks are performed automatically
  • Operation times for multiple functions are accurately determined using Active Time ManagementTM
  • Over five times longer maintenance life, ensuring that analysis is performed reliably over longer periods using standard maintenance items like: inserts, columns, and other consumables
  • Improved amplification performance, able to reliably detect ultra-trace femtogram-level quantities of ions

Alternative GCMS Carrier Gas

Helium gas is typically used as the carrier gas for GC/MS. However, in recent years, the supply of helium gas has at times been insufficient and the price has increased. As a result, the use of hydrogen gas (H2) as an alternative gas has progressed.
