HRAM GC-MS Highlights
Quantitative and qualitative analysis
Achieve the highest confidence in compound detection through leading sensitivity, six orders of dynamic range, and high selectivity full-scan analysis. Full-scan operation can be performed up to 120,000 resolution (at m/z 200) with sub-1 ppm mass accuracy and full-scan sensitivity down to part-per-trillion concentrations. This capability drives broad-scope screening and quantitative methods for complex matrices where confident ultra-trace-level detection is required.
Flexible data processing and retrospective analysis
High-selectivity full-scan analysis offers new possibilities for high-throughput contaminant detection and food research, including easy analytical set-up, almost unlimited scope, efficient automatic data processing and retrospective data analysis. The Exactive GC Orbitrap GC-MS system has the quantitative power of a GC triple quadrupole MS combined with the full-scan HRAM capability of Thermo Scientific Orbitrap mass analyzer technology for greater lab productivity.
Confident compound identification
Whether you need to ensure final products being shipped meet quality control standards, develop new products, or identify a suspect contaminant, high-resolution gas chromatography separations and highly sensitive HRAM acquisitions combine with intelligent identification software to quickly answer questions about the composition of each sample you inject.
Adjustable scope of analysis
The systems can be paired with Thermo Scientific TraceFinder software, which can use multiple nominal or exact mass libraries for automatic compound identification. The libraries can be existing spectral libraries developed in-house, commercially available libraries, such as NIST or Wiley, or official Orbitrap GC-MS libraries. A more restricted library can be configured to narrow the scope of non-targeted analysis or larger libraries or combinations of libraries can be used to broaden the scope.
Fast instrument set-up
Be ready to run samples in minutes and confident that the system is performing at its best with automated tuning and calibration. With high-selectivity full scan analysis you will no longer have to worry about method settings. Simply acquire and process your data to answer a variety of analytical questions.
Improve lab efficiency, reduce costs and simplify operations by combining multiple targeted methods onto a single instrument. Method consolidation enables streamlined data processing and offers the flexibility to adapt to changing demands.
