GCMS-QP2010 Ultra
Shimadzu Scientific has launched the GCMS-QP2010 Ultra that offers improved applicability for comprehensive two-dimensional (2-D) GC and ultra-high separation. Shimadzu used new, patented mass spectrometry technology called Advanced Scanning Speed Protocol (ASSP), a firmware protocol that optimizes the ion transmission hardware parameters with a data collection algorithm, to increase data acquisition speed up to 20,000 u/sec and 100 Hz. ASSP also maintains system sensitivity at elevated scan speeds. The Ultra also features high-speed oven cooling for shorter analysis cycles. Using a jet cooling system, the GC cools from 350º to 50º C in less than 3 minutes, Shimadzu reports. To further increase lab efficiency, the GCMS-QP2010 Ultra can accept two narrow-bore capillary columns into the MS simultaneously. Its twin-line MS system allows users to switch applications without physically modifying the column installation. Users simply decide which columns are required for analysis and choose the associated injection port.
