Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)
Since its first bench-top gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC-MS) was sold in 1979, Shimadzu has been a leader in design innovations, such as our front access ion source, high efficiency ion optics, 20,000 u/second scan speed, and post-quadrupole focusing lenses. Together, these innovations provide unparalleled instrument performance and simplified operation and maintenance. With the addition of the GCMS-TQ8050 NX triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS, Shimadzu offers a comprehensive series of GC-MS and GC-MS/MS instruments for every application.
With the launch of the NX Series of GC-MS and GC-MS/MS instruments, Shimadzu has raised performance levels to new heights. And, with outstanding functionality, a variety of Smart features, easy maintenance, and intuitive software, these GC-MS systems provide more efficient workflows, greater uptime, and reduced costs for higher productivity and better ROI for any laboratory.
