GCMS-TQ8040 Triple Quadrupole GC/MS with Smart MRM


The Shimadzu GCMS-TQ8040 with Smart MRM technology, automatically determines all optimum transitions and collision energies, and seamlessly incorporates them into the Smart Database Series for fully automated MRM method development from start to finish. So smart it almost runs itself! Perfect for applications like Food and Beverage and Cannabis Testing.


  • MRM Optimization Tool seamlessly selects and optimizes MRM transitions for multiple compounds in a single sequence
  • Smart Database Series provides fully automated method development at the touch of a button
  • Smart MRM method creation protocol automatically sets the optimum dwell and loop times for each method to maximize sensitivity
  • Flexible MS Events prevent losing compounds in the presence of a complex matrix
  • Scan/MRM analysis mode simultaneously acquires accurate library-searchable mass spectra and low-level MRM quantitation in a single analysis
  • Automatic Adjustment of Retention Times (AART) with > 99.9% accuracy means no need to adjust flow rates or update RTs manually

GCMS-TQ8040 quadrupole

Using Flexible MS Events, the Smart MRM function routinely determines the best dwell and loop times for more than 400 compounds in a single method, providing optimum precision and sensitivity – impossible to do manually. The GCMS-TQ8040 can acquire data in the classic MRM mode, or in synchronous Scan/MRM mode for simultaneous qualitative and quantitative results. And the AART feature updates retention times in both the acquisition and data processing methods without changing chromatographic conditions or requiring multiple injections of standards.
