TSQ Altis Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer

Achieve ultimate sensitivity and robustness without compromise. The Thermo Scientific TSQ Altis Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer features segmented quadrupoles with hyperbolic faces, an enhanced dual-mode discrete-dynode electron multiplier detector, and high resolution SRM (0.2 FWHM) for unprecedented sensitivity, selectivity, and speed, as well as unmatched analytical flexibility, reproducibility, and outstanding precision. The TSQ Altis enables every analytical laboratory to successfully address its most demanding applications.

For today and what's next

40 year anniversary of Thermo Scientific development and success of triple quadrupole mass spectrometers


Maximize your return on investment in a unified Thermo Scientific mass spectrometry architecture from data acquisition and analysis solutions


Key benefits

Achieve the lowest limits of detection (LODs) for any molecule or matrixMaximize system uptime under challenging conditionsGo from sample to results fasterGain better insights with improved selectivity
For laboratories who are analyzing complex samples, the TSQ Altis MS system can quantify compounds at extremely low concentrations using segmented quadrupoles.Our novel ion source design enables your laboratory to spend less time on maintenance without needing to break vacuum.The TSQ Altis MS delivers short dwell times and unmatched speed (up to 600 SRMs/sec) with ultrafast selected reaction monitoring (SRM) so you can analyze more compounds per sample.High resolution selected reaction monitoring (SRM) enables superior selectivity (0.2 Da FWHM). With this improvement, you can resolve more peaks than ever before with increased sensitivity.

Greater proteome coverage and sensitivity

The Thermo Scientific FAIMS Pro Duo interface enhances precursor selectivity, improving qualitative and quantitative results for most peptide and protein applications while reducing time-consuming sample preparation steps. The FAIMS Pro Duo interface increases analytical performance through gas-phase fractionation and selective enhancement of peptidic compounds, reducing the complexity of MS spectra, and improving the analyte signal-to-noise ratio. The end result is greater proteome coverage, enhanced sensitivity and more accurate quantitation.
