Tandem Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer
Waters Corp. has introduced the Waters Xevo TQ-S micro, a compact benchtop tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer. The Waters Xevo TQ-S micro is designed to acquire sensitive data at accelerated rates of acquisition for numerous analytes at varying concentrations. Featuring new Xtended Dynamic Range technology, the Xevo TQ-S micro mass spectrometer offers six orders of magnitude of linear dynamic range. This is important for quantifying compounds in samples where the concentrations of individual analytes differ greatly. Furthermore, the wider the operational dynamic range, the easier it is to transfer methods between instruments of differing sensitivities. The Xevo TQ-S micro’s Xcelerated Ion Transfer (XIT) electronics allow the instrument to acquire as many as 500 MRMs/sec without significantly reducing peak intensities, which no other tandem quadrupole instrument currently offers.
