Complex but a really valuable addition to your analytical laboratory.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: Multidimensional and comprehensive analysis of metabolites

"I have been using GCMS for years and when opportunity came to purchase a multidimensional system came along I looked at systems from several manufacturers. I could not afford a TOF system but quadrupoles are now pretty good for my requirements, and I settled on Shimadzu. The instrument is well made and nicely put together. I particularly like the fact that it consists of a GCMS and a second GC-fid that are connected by a Deans switch, so no secondary ovens. This allows heart cutting of peaks in the fid chromatogram to the second column for GCMS analysis. This allows real deconvolution (in theory) and the cleanest mass spectra I have produced. In addition, the GCMS is fitted with a Zoex big fridge modulator allowing fully comprehensive metabolite analysis. In reality I am still learning what I can do with this system. The software is good and straight forward and I am very happy with my choice. The downside is it’s not for beginners! Using the two machines together requires balancing and a good understanding of chromatography, once the methods are set up however it could be run by anyone with an SOP. By nature, it is slower and more complex than a straight forward GCMS and I would not have only this system in my laboratory, you need a workhorse GCMS also. For fine analysis it’s the bee’s knees.

  • Application Area:Clinical Toxicology

"QP2010 Ultra is highly selective and sensitive instrument for analysis of abused drugs in urine. The software is user-friendly and with the library resources it allows general unknown analysis as well. Shimadzu distributor provides well established technical service and support. "

  • Application Area:Drugs Of Abuse Analysis

"The software is very awful. There is a lot of information on the same page. Maybe it is interesting when you are doing research or analytical method development but it is not easy to use for routine work."

Capable of fast data measurement with sensitivity five times higher than previous models, the GCMS-QP2010 Ultra offers improved applicability for comprehensive two-dimensional GC and ultra-high separation. Shimadzu used new, patented mass spectrometry technology called Advanced Scanning Speed Protocol (ASSP™), a firmware protocol that optimizes the ion transmission hardware parameters with a highly efficient data collection algorithm, to increase data acquisition speed up to 20,000 u/sec and 100 Hz. ASSP also provides the added benefit of maintaining system sensitivity at elevated scan speeds.

To help increase throughput, the GCMS-QP2010 Ultra features high-speed oven cooling for shorter analysis cycles. Using a double jet cooling system, the GC cools from 350 to 50 degrees Celsius in less than three minutes. The combination of a high-speed GC method and a high-speed cooling oven can reduce the analysis cycle by up to 50 percent.

To further increase lab efficiency, the GCMS-QP2010 Ultra can accept two narrow-bore capillary columns into the MS simultaneously. Its twin-line MS system allows users to switch applications without physically modifying the column installation. Users simply decide which columns are required for analysis and choose the associated injection port.
