TSQ Quantum Access

The TSQ Quantum Access, a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer, offers versatility with its best in class mass range (m/z 30–3000). It has the ability to do 3000 timed SRMs as well as triggering data-dependent full scan MS/MS (Quantitation-Enhanced Data-Dependent MS/MS (QED-MS/MS)) giving the multi-component screening experiment an added dimension of specificity. Highly Selective Reaction Monitoring (H-SRM) followed by QED-MS/MS provides uncompromised quantitative performance at low levels followed by a fast, highly specific full MS/MS scan for confirmation. Additionally the Zero Cross-Talk Collision Cell eliminates false positives.
