Markes BenchTOF.
Rating: 3.0

  • Application Area: Analytics

"Markes' BenchTOF's quality allows it to be adjusted to fit (almost) any GC instrument. However, there are a lot of problems considering the compatibility, which often caues breakdowns of the system and additionaly with various file types, which need to be translated before further handling. The support is okay, but often unfortunately cannot solve all the bugs that come from the incompatibility."

Good product, good performance
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Breath clinical biopsy

"It has a different interface compared to other TOF and the files to upload the methods have a different format and they can mainly be open through the instrument. For this reason, it is a bit difficult sometimes. Although it is designed to be more user friendly. Once the method is created and the everything is set up to run automatically it is easier to use."

  • Application Area:Bioanalytical Science

"This is not the easiest instrument in the world to get to grips with, but it is worth the time and effort. Its great advantage for our work on biomarker discovery is the ability to look at selected ions without degradation of limit of detection or the need to carry out separate SIR analyses. Other applications would benefit from the high level of mass resolution and sensitivity which are also available. The support and expertise of the manufacturer is outstanding. New software is expected to largely resolve any issues of usability."

BenchTOF2™ is a time-of-flight mass spectrometer for use with both GC and GCxGC for a wide range of applications. 

BenchTOF2 has the option to include Tandem Ionisation®, which provides simultaneous hard and soft electron ionisation data. This patented technique provides complementary spectra for characterisation of targets and unknowns in a single run, without any hardware changes or additional method development. 

BenchTOF2 incorporates powerful ChromSpace® software for full instrument control and data processing. 

BenchTOF2 is fully certified for use with hydrogen carrier gas, resulting in faster chromatographic separations, reduced running costs, faster return on investment, and mitigation of gas supply issues. 
Together, these tools enable scientists to discover more about their samples, and to deliver higher throughput for both research and routine applications. 

Key features and benefits

  • Identify analytes confidently through an unbeatable combination of SIM-level sensitivity, high-quality spectra, excellent selectivity and smart software tools
  • Improve detection limits with full spectral information, and so detect a wide range of trace-level species in a single analysis, with the option of retrospective searching for new compounds of interest
  • Extend dynamic range across five orders of magnitude: accurately quantify high-concentration compounds while maintaining low detection limits, and so remove the need for dilutions or repeat analyses
  • Carry out fast GC and GC×GC separations thanks to BenchTOF2’s fast acquisition speeds
  • Simultaneously acquire hard and soft EI spectra using patented Tandem Ionisation® technology, and so confidently identify challenging compounds (e.g. isomers) in streamlined workflows
  • Increase productivity through use of H2 carrier gas, for lower cost of ownership, fast return on investment, faster chromatographic separations, and easier implementation for new labs
  • Minimise training: BenchTOF2 combines instrument control, method development, data analysis and chemometrics in a single user interface, and is easily learnt by non-MS experts

Relevant applications

  • Odours and emissions
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Flavours and fragrances
  • Cannabis, tobacco and related products
  • Petrochemicals
  • Biological monitoring
  • Biomarker discovery
