Industrial Mass Spectrometry

The power of multi-award winning Orbitrap™ GC-MS technology has so far allowed research scientists to break new ground in gaining a broader and deeper understanding of their samples through the use of high-resolution, accurate-mass (HRAM) analysis. The introduction of the Thermo Scientific™ Exactive™ GC Orbitrap™ GC-MS system brings that power into the routine environment for the first time. This system allows scientists working in fields like food safety, environmental, industrial, forensics and anti-doping to revolutionize their workflows by taking their analytical capability to the next level.

The Exactive GC system is an easy-to-use, dedicated GC-MS that provides an unprecedented level of highly sensitive, routine grade performance for both targeted and non-targeted analysis, along with high confidence quantitation for the ultimate sample analysis workflow. This is achieved through the superior resolving power, mass accuracy, linear dynamic range and sensitivity that only Orbitrap technology can deliver, combined with the intelligent data processing workflows provided by Thermo Scientific™ TraceFinder™ software.

Performance benefits include:
  • Resolving power of up to 50,000 (FWHM) at m/z 272
  • Routine sub ppm mass accuracy
  • <6 fg OFN Instrument Detection Limit
  • Electron Ionization/Chemical Ionization (EI/CI) Thermo Scientific™ ExtractaBrite™ ion source removable under vacuum through vacuum interlock
  • Vent-free column exchange with source plug
  • Variable electron voltage (VeV) technology for softer EI
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.
