Waters QTof Mass Spectrometer Detects Low-Level Compounds

Pharmaceutical Technology, Pharmaceutical Technology-09-02-2014, Volume 38, Issue 9

The Waters Xevo G2-XS mass spectrometer is a new high-performance benchtop quadrupole time-of-flight (QTof) mass spectrometer that combines the new XS Collision Cell with the technologies of Tof-MRM, StepWave and QuanTof for sensitivity and selectivity that allows detection of low-level compounds.

The Waters Xevo G2-XS mass spectrometer is a new high-performance benchtop quadrupole time-of-flight (QTof) mass spectrometer that combines the new XS Collision Cell with the technologies of Tof-MRM, StepWave and QuanTof for sensitivity and selectivity that allows detection of low-level compounds.

The benchtop instrument allows laboratories to perform qualitative and quantitative experiments for both known and unknown analytes. For targeted quantitative experiments, Tof-MRM mode delivers a 10-fold improvement in signal-to-noise when compared to full scan mode, thus improving limits of detection and quantification. The instrument uses Waters MSE technology, a patented method of data acquisition that comprehensively catalogs complex samples in a single analysis.
