Orbitrap GC-MS – Redefine your GC-MS Analysis

Redefine your GC-MS Analysis

A comprehensive understanding of samples has been out of reach for GC-MS users for too long. The Thermo Scientific Q  Exactive GC Orbitrap GC-MS/MS system and the new Thermo Scientific Exactive GC Orbitrap GC-MS system have changed all of that. The Q Exactive GC Orbitrap GC-MS/MS system is here with the superior resolving power, mass accuracy, and sensitivity that only Orbritrap technology can deliver. The Exactive GC Orbitrap GC-MS system brings the power of high-resolution, accurate-mass (HRAM) analysis into the routine environment for the first time. Both systems allow scientists working in the fields of food safety, environmental, industrial, forensics, and anti-doping to revolutionize their workflows by taking their analytical capabilities to the next level.

What are the unique benefits of the Orbitrap GC-MS systems?



Q Exactive GC Orbitrap GC-MS/MS

Exactive GC Orbitrap

Bent Flatapole with Axial FieldFor lowest possible noise and maximum robustness.  
Thermo Scientific HyperQuad Mass Filter with Advanced Quadrupole Technology (AQT)High transmission of selected masses for low-level detection and quantitation of low-abundance compounds in highly complex matrices.  
Curved Linear C-trapPrecise ion injection delivers excellent, in-spectrum dynamic range and ensures outstanding HRAM performance across a wide range of concentrations through automatic gain control (AGC).  
Higher-Energy Collisional Dissociation (HCD) CellHigher energy collisional dissociation for MS/MS ion characterization of ions - used in combination with chemical ionization to help elucidate chemical structures. 
Orbitrap Mass AnalyzerIncredible resolving power up to 120,000 FWHM (for the Q Exactive GC) at m/z 200; up to 50,000 FWHM (for the Exactive GC) at m/z 272. Sub-ppm mass accuracy with a high acquisition rate, driving unrivaled spectral quality.  
Variable electron voltage (VeV) tuningSofter EI technique to promote molecular ion and higher mass signals.  
Thermo Scientific Xcalibur instrument control and data processing softwareUltrafast real-time data acquisition, AGC, and automated tune and calibration.  
Thermo Scientific TraceFinder softwareDetects sample components and generates clean spectra, identifies candidate compounds from electron ionization libraries.  
Thermo Scientific TRACE 1310 GCModular design, direct local instrument control.
