Orbitrap Exploris GC 240 MS schematic
Number 1

ExtractaBrite EI/CI Ion Source

Robust electron impact (EI) and chemical ionization (CI) performance with a source that is fully removable for maintenance, column change or EI to CI swap without breaking vacuum.

Number 2

Advanced Active Beam Guide (AABG) with axial gradient

Reduces noise and increases robustness by preventing neutrals from entering the quadrupole mass filter and eliminating effects of local charging

Number 3

Advanced Quadrupole Technology (AQT) 

Improves sensitivity with 0.4 Da FWHM precursor isolation widths

Number 4


Curved linear trap for precise ion injection

Number 5

 High-Field Orbitrap Mass Analyzer

Resolution up to 240,000 at m/z 200 and acquisition rates up to 40 Hz

Number 6

Ion Routing Multipole

Facilitates higher energy collisional dissociation (HCD) fragmentation
