The Q Exactive HF instrument uses a segmented quadrupole mass filter to achieve more precise precursor isolation for better discrimination between analytes and coeluting interferences. An advanced active beam guide increases ion transmission. The result is superior sensitivity and greater quantitative dynamic range, especially when dealing with complex mixtures.Multiple, sophisticated modes of data acquisition/quantitation ensure optimum quantitative results
The Q Exactive HF mass spectrometer supports multiple approaches to quantitation including selected ion monitoring (SIM), parallel-reaction monitoring (PRM), and data-independent acquisition (DIA). Users can select the technique best matched to their sample and information requirements.
The Q Exactive HF system features a new ultra-high-field Orbitrap mass analyzer that, while physically smaller, provides higher resolution and faster scan speeds. Combined with the inherent superior quality of Orbitrap spectra, the Q Exactive HF system provides more-confident identification and quantitation in less time
When research requires analysis of intact proteins or protein complexes, the Q Exactive HF system can be equipped with an intact protein mode option (available on new instruments only). This option enhances analysis of intact proteins through sophisticated ion beam control and easy pressure adjustment.
