The MSQ™ Plus Mass Spectrometer can be used in a wide range of applications and methodologies in both HPLC and IC.
Only 12 inches wide, the MSQ Plus is by far the most compact mass spectrometer on the market today. It provides universal detection and characterization of analytes in the 17–2000 m/z range.
The MSQ Plus features a newly designed self-cleaning Atmospheric Pressure Ionization (API) source for outstanding sensitivity and noise reduction. Compatible with existing LC and IC methods, the MSQ Plus is more sensitive, rugged, powerful, easier to use, and smaller than any other instrument of its kind.
The MSQ Plus features a high-sensitivity, self-cleaning ESI/APCI ionization source that requires no mechanical adjustment or electrostatic focusing for sample optimization. The compact source design is optimized for a wide range of flow rates and supports a wide range of chromatographic buffers.
