The QP-2010 GC/MS continues Shimadzu’s tradition of superior performance, flexibility, and quality – Shimadzu trademarks. Packed with advanced features, including an extended mass range from 1.5 to 1024 Daltons and optional Positive (PCI) and Negative Chemical Ionization (NCI), the QP-2010 provides users with excellent speed and sensitivity, making it ideal for many applications, including forensic analyses, drug testing, environmental monitoring, component identification, and product impurity identification.Features
The QP-2010 provides optimum speed and separation performance analysis for all GCMS measurements. It provides acquisition speeds to 50 scans per second, which allows using the newest micro-bore columns to improve sample throughput with data quality not attainable before. Thousands of samples can be run without operator intervention using the sample queuing software.
The AOC-20 and AOC-5000 autosamplers enable many analysis modes: Direct injection from 1.5 mL or 4mL vials for on column, PTV/LVI, SPME (solid phase micro extraction), ambient, heated headspace as well as micro-titer plate-based analysis.
Easy Switching Between EI, PCI and NCI Modes
The QP-2010 NCI option has a unique advanced ion source design. Now you can analyze compounds in CI mode and then in qualitative EI or NCI mode, without changing ion source components. These methods can be switched automatically in the batch table.
The QP-2010 is equipped with a high-capacity dual differential turbo-molecular pumping system. An ion gauge ensures the precise measurement of the source pressure. After maintenance is performed, the tandem (rotary and turbo) pump design generates a high vacuum in minutes.
Constant Linear Velocity
Patented constant linear velocity maintains the optimum sample velocity during column temperature profiles to provide the best theoretical as well as actual separation available. Six pressure ramps, both in positive and negative modes, and twenty temperature ramps simplify complex separations.
The QP-2010 features front ion source access pioneered by Shimadzu for unmatched quality and repeatability, as well as post quadrupole focusing lenses and redesigned ion optics.

"We have had the GC-MS system for 6 years of continuous operation. The GC 2010 is a workhorse with no problems at all. The AOC 20i auotsampler does exactly what is programmed. The MSD works very well. The operation software works well, the in-program help does seem to use English as a Second Language at times. The filaments do seem to have a shorter than expected life. The ion source exceeds the expected life by a good portion. The Edwards roughing pump and the Turbo exceed the expected run life by a good portion. Technical service is superb. Friendly and helpful. Would buy another from this supplier."
