So Smart it almost runs itself!
Improving precision and throughput, Shimadzu’s new GCMS-TQ8040 triple quadrupole GCMS is exceptionally accurate, cost effective and easy-to-use. The system combines Ultra-Fast Mass Spectrometry (UFMS) and Smart Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) based on Shimadzu's patented UFsweeperTM technology. Smart MRM streamlines the entire process of adjusting the loop and dwell times for optimum sensitivity, and methods are created with the touch of a button.
Through smart technologies, the triple quadrupole GCMS provides a new level in routine work:
- Smart Productivity is the key to simultaneous multi-component analysis, high efficiency and sample throughput. UFMS in the Multiple Reaction Monitoring mode can acquire up to 32,000 transitions in a single analysis. Smart MRM technology adjusts the analytical dwell time automatically for each transition to fully optimize sensitivity and data quality.
- Smart Operation facilitates rapid and easy method development. Tools, software and functions optimize the operation of the system, e.g. a smart database of related compounds (pesticides, drugs etc.), and the GCMSsolution operation software featuring Automatic Adjustment of Compound Retention Time (AART).
- Smart Performance enables Scan/MRM for low detection limits and simultaneous target compound confirmation. Shimadzu's proprietary UFsweeperTM technology achieves high-speed MRM analysis and provides high-efficiency CID and fast ion transport. Rapid ion removal minimizes cross-talk and enables trace analysis. The high-efficiency ion source supplies maximum possible sensitivity and repeatability.
The GCMS-TQ8040 has an eco-friendly design resulting in reduced power consumption and lower running costs. If ecology mode is used over one year of operation*, power consumption can be reduced by 26 % and CO2 emissions can be reduced by approx. 1.1 tons.
*) This is based on 6 hours of use per day for 260 days under our standard analytical conditions.
