Reduces Maintenance Frequency and Long-term Operational Costs
In addition to ultra-high sensitivity, the GCMS-TQ8050 NX also offers high robustness. The contamination-resistant ion source and the new detector with over five times longer service life ensure that analysis can be performed reliably for a long time. With the ultra-high-sensitivity performance of the GCMS-TQ8050 NX, injection volumes can be reduced even further than before. The service life of inserts, columns, and other consumables can also be extended to reduce maintenance frequency and costs.
Highly Sensitive and Stable Ion Source
The effect of the filament’s electric potential on the ion source is reduced by placing more distance between the filament and ion source box. In addition, a shield blocks out radiant heat generated from the filament to ensure the ion source box temperature remains uniform. Since this prevents any active spots within the ion source, it provides higher sensitivity for analysis. (Patent: US7939810)
High-Performance Quadrupole Mass Filter
The high-accuracy mass filter with pre-rods and patented electric field control technology achieves high-accuracy mass separation performance.
Also, the pre-rods minimize quadrupole contamination and eliminate the need for quadrupole maintenance.
Exhaustive efforts to reduce detector loads during analysis resulted in a significantly longer detector service life. Consequently, the instrument needs to be maintained much less frequently, which results in greater uptime.
Because the GCMS-TQ8050 NX is able to detect ultra-trace ions with high sensitivity, it can also achieve high quantitative accuracy even from trace sample quantities. Therefore, injection volumes can be reduced during analysis to reduce the analytical loads on the insert, column, ion source, and other parts, and also further reduce maintenance frequency.
Oil-Free Pump (Optional)
The rotary pump can be replaced with an oil-free pump, which requires no maintenance for three years. This auxiliary vacuum pump not only maintains an oil-free environment inside the vacuum lines, it also eliminates the tedious and time-consuming tasks of replacing and disposing of the oil.
