Three triple quads achieve a new global standard in mass spectrometry

The triple quadrupole mass spectrometers LCMS-8030, LCMS-8040 and GCMS-TQ8030 complete Shimadzu’s UFMS series consisting of seven powerful systems. The UFMS product family provides higher sensitivity, greater excellence in data quality, increased analytical throughput and a wider range of applications.

GCMS-TQ8030 — ultra-fast analysis meets sensitivity and accuracy
The GCMS-TQ8030 achieves the highest sensitivity in its class for multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) measurements based on UFsweeper® technology.  Superior mass spectra and sensitivity at high scan speeds of up to 20,000 masses/sec is achieved using Advanced Scanning Speed Protocol (ASSP™).

The GCMS-TQ8030’s ecology mode reduces carbon dioxide emissions through a reduction of power consumption in analysis standby mode of 36 percent while also decreasing the consumption of carrier gas.

LCMS-8030 – features the most innovative technology found in a commercial tandem quadrupole mass analyzer. The system combines the power of triple quadrupole mass spectrometry with unmatched speed to provide the ideal complement to its UHPLC systems. The LCMS-8030 accelerates workflows for high-throughput analysis.

The LCMS-8030 features ultra-fast multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) transitions, enabling data acquisition with up to 500 different channels per second. The improvements to the electronics provide ultra-fast mass spectrum measurement speeds of 15,000 u/sec without sacrificing sensitivity or resolution, with ultra-fast polarity switching (15 msec) for maximum information without signal deterioration.

LCMS-8040 – Expanded range of ultra-fast, high-sensitivity applications
The system combines newly improved ion optics and collision cell technology with proprietary ultrafast technologies. This significantly expands the application range and ensures high-sensitivity, high-throughput analysis at lower levels of detection.

The LCMS-8040 is the world’s fastest LCMS/MS tandem mass spectrometer and provides multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) transition speeds of up to 555 MRMs/sec second. This is based on UFsweeper® II collision cell technology that maintains sensitivity and suppresses cross-talk, even for high-speed or simultaneous multi-component analyses.
