This 5973 GC-MS system can be used for e-cigarette testing. Complete with a standard turbo is compact (occupying less than 0.2 m2 on a benchtop), requires no cooling water or compressed air. Includes a short GC interface (< 20 cm), an independently heated electron impact ion source, a metalized gold quadrupole mass filter, an electronics module, LAN communications, and a long-life off-axis HED (high-energy dynode) detector with a replaceable snap-in horn.

This GC-MS system has been used to test e-cigarette formulations - please see the full data linked above.

Mass range
1.6-800 amu in 0.1 amu steps; any subset of this range may be selected by the user.

Scan speed
Instrument provides scan rates up to 5,200 amu/second with 0.1 amu scan step size, with eight sampling rates. (Typical analyses require one scan/second, which is approximately 800 amu/second.)

Dynamic range
Total ADC (analog/digital converter) dynamic range is 106. Linear calibration curves for individual compounds will vary depending on sample, target analyte, experimental conditions, and chromatographic performance.

SIM (single ion monitoring) capability
Up to 50 groups of masses, with 30 masses per group, may be switched automatically within an analysis by time-programming during acquisition.

Ionization current
Filament emission current is user-selectable over the range 0-315 μA in all modes of operation. Some combinations of low ionization energy and high emission current are not allowed to avoid damage to the instrument.

Ion source temperature
Temperature of the independently heated ion source can
be controlled up to 250°C for (EI).

Quadrupole temperature
Temperature of the independently heated quadrupole can be controlled up to 200°C.

Interface temperature
Temperature of the interface (an auxiliary zone of the GC) can be controlled up to 350°C.

High Vacuum Pump Specification
Performance Turbo, Optimal Gas Flow Rate for GC/MS: 4 mL/min

Environmental conditions Temperature
Operating environment: 15 to 35°C at constant temperature (constant temperature: ±2°C per hour)
Non-operating storage temperature: -20 to 70°C

Operating: 25% to 50% RH
Non-operating: 10% to 95% RH, (non-condensing)

Why employ ms4sale?

Your MS options are far reaching, so why use Jaytee Biosciences? Unlike other providers of used MS equipment, we have the ability to completely:

This is because we employ both skilled engineers and experienced scientists, which allows us to provide a value added solution.

When we acquire an MS system, we are not simply re-listing for sale with a mark-up. We service,test and run the system, producing chromatographic and mass spectral data before we advertise. When our clients ask us whether a particular system is suitable for their application, we provide detailed information, and offer a pre-visit service whereby you send us your sample, which we run and prove for your benefit. Why? Because we can, and because it helps you make the right choices.

Ask yourself why other companies are only showing stock images, with no data or proof of performance - because we have the skills, you get the peace of mind and the ongoing support for your method.

Finally, this is at no added cost, since our pricing policy is flexible, and therefore competitive - a win/win!

Jaytee; No take overs/mergers in over 35 years - just professional, solid, skilled on going support.
