Xevo TQ-XS Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry
One system. Every analyte. All the time.
Demands on analytical laboratories are changing and every laboratory needs to ensure it can keep pace with these changes. The Xevo® TQ-XS offers:
- StepWave XS™ ion guide that provides increased sensitivity for challenging compounds.
- Enhanced detection system with six orders of linear dynamic range to ensure sensitivity is accessible.
- Tool-free probe design reduces the time taken for any routine maintenance and provides improved reproducibility between users.
Features and Benefits
Reproducible, ultimate sensitivity quantitation
Whether you are analyzing small or large molecules, single analytes or multiple panels of compounds, the Xevo TQ-XS will give you the results you need, first time and without complication.
The new StepWave XS ion guide provides improved sensitivity that is reproducible for multiple injections and can provide reliable quantitation at the very lowest levels. StepWave XS ensures neutrals and gas load are passively removed for enhanced transmission, with the ions actively transferred into the mass analyser, improving sensitivity and robustness. The first stage is modified with a series of horizontal plates that allows a more controlled extraction of ions from the gas flow so that ions collide with gas molecules with less energy.
A segmented quadrupole second stage focuses the ion beam to provide more efficient transmission of ions from the source to the detector.
Pushing the boundaries – leading technology
The key technologies that enable you to do more with your instrument start with UniSpray™ which ionizes a wider range of compounds than any other single technique. Combining wider compound coverage with an extremely easy to use source, UniSpray can deliver results to your laboratory for more compounds than before, without having to change source or probe. So you can spend more time delivering results and less time changing instrument parts.
Robust results you can trust with the most demanding sample matrices
The routine challenges of complex matrices are overcome by the Xevo TQ-XS which provides reproducible results injection after injection despite difficult sample matrices. In a study involving 2,000 injections of protein-precipitated plasma and analyzing sulphadimethoxine, there was little variation in peak area over the entire injection series with <3% RSD. This study aimed to reproduce the challenging conditions found in many analytical laboratories by also using a short dwell time of only 5 ms.
