XEVO TQD Performance Spec

Acquisition modes: Full scan MS, Product ion scan, Precursor ion scan, Constant neutral loss scan, Selected ion recording (SIR), Multiple reaction monitoring (MRM), Simultaneous full scan and MRM (RADAR).

Survey scan modes: Full scan MS triggered product ion scan, Precursor ion scan data acts as an automatic trigger for the collection of product ion spectra, Constant neutral scan data acts as an automatic trigger for the collection of product ion spectra.

Product ion confirmation (PIC) mode: MRM data acts as an automatic trigger for the collection of product ion spectra, activated with asingle check box.

RADAR: An information rich acquisition approach that allows you to collect highly specific quantitativedata for target compounds while providing the ability to visualize all other components.

Mass range: 2 to 2048 m/z

Scan speed: Up to 10,000 Da/s, Examples of achievable acquisition rates:10 scans per second (m/z 50 to 1000), 20 scans per second (m/z 50 to 500)

Mass stability: Mass drift is < 0.1 Da over a 24 hour period.

Linearity of response: The linearity of response relative to sample concentration, for a specified compound, is up to five orders of magnitude from the limit of detection.

Polarity switching time: 20 ms to switch between positive and negative ion modes.

MS to MS/MS switching time: 3 ms

MRM acquisition rate: Minimum dwell time of 1 ms per MRM channel; Minimum inter-channel delay of 3 ms.

Number of MRM channels: Up to 32,768 MRM channels (1,024 functions, 32 channels per function) can be monitored in asingle acquisition; up to 1,024 MRM channels when operating in GLP/secure mode (32 functions,32 channels per function).

Mass resolution: Automatic set up by IntelliStart (0.75 Da or 1.00 Da FWHM).

MRM sensitivity (ESI+): A 1 pg on-column injection of reserpine will give a chromatographic signal-to-noise greater than 30,000:1, using raw unsmoothed data(Gradient separation, LC mobile phase flow rate of 0.4 mL/min, MRM transition m/z 609 > 195).

MRM sensitivity (ESI-): A 1 pg on-column injection of chloramphenicol will give a chromatographic signal-to-noisegreater than 10,000:1, using raw unsmoothed data (Gradient separation, LC mobile phaseflow rate of 0.8 mL/min, MRM transition m/z 321 > 152).

MRM sensitivity (APCI+): A 100 pg on-column injection of of 17-α-hydroxyprogesterone will give a chromatographicsignal-to-noise greater than 10,000:1, using raw unsmoothed data (Gradient separation, LC mobile phase flow rate of 0.8 mL/min, MRM transition m/z 331 > 109).

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.
