The Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ GC hybrid quadrupole Orbitrap mass spectrometer provides an unmatched combination of sensitivity, mass-accuracy and resolving power, helping answer today’s most challenging analytical questions. With best-in-class performance characteristics for both quantitative and discovery workflows, the Q Exactive GC system allows the most comprehensive characterization of complex samples.

Performance benefits include:
  • Resolving power of up to 100,000 (FWHM) at m/z 272
  • Routine sub ppm mass accuracy
  • < 6 fg OFN Instrument Detection Limit
  • EI/CI Thermo Scientific™ Extractabrite™ ion source removable under vacuum through vacuum interlock
  • Vent-free column exchange with source plug
  • Advanced Quadrupole technology (AQT) for superior precursor isolation
  • Variable electron voltage (VeV) technology for softer EI
  • High sensitivity MS/MS experiments with Higher-Energy
Combine the power of unattended sample handling
A perfect match for the Q Exactive GC system, the Thermo Scientific™ TriPlus™ RSH autosampler utilizes robotic sample handling to expand automated capabilities beyond liquid, headspace, and solid-phase microextraction (SPME) injections to advanced sample handling cycles. 
Automated tool exchange permits to switch between different syringes and sample handling techniques "on-the-fly" and to benefit of high precison injection from low to large volumes to maximize your analysis opportunities. 
TriPlus RSH Sampling Workflow Editor
Increase the laboratory’s efficiency with the best use of the operator’s time and assure the best data quality through fully unattended automated sample preparation procedures, from sample dilution, calibration dilution or internal standard addition to more complex derivatization protocols.
In addition to available ready-to-use prep cycles for the TriPlus RSH autosampler, it is also possible to easily program custom sample preparation workflows thanks to an intuitive drag and drop visula programming software to quickly create your method and instruct the autosampler to work for you.
