Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the TSQ 8000 Evo triple quadrupole GC-MS, which improves on the features of its predecessor, the TSQ 8000, with new EvoCell technology. The EvoCell technology demonstrated in company-run experiments to triple selected reaction monitoring (SRM) transition rates without compromising sensitivity. Contributing to this productivity is the included Timed-SRM software for optimizing selected reaction monitoring schedules. Company-run experiments also showed that the EvoCell can enable triple the sensitivity at the same scan speed, allowing users to screen and quantitate more than 1,000 compounds in a single run at low limits of detection. The instrument’s ExtractaBrite ion source is designed for high matrix tolerance to minimize sample preparation and cleaning. When the source does need maintenance, it can be removed without breaking vacuum to further enhance uptime.
