Detailed information

The Q Exactive benchtop LC-MS/MS combines high-performance quadrupole precursor selection with high-resolution, accurate-mass (HR/AM) Orbitrap detection to deliver high performance and tremendous versatility.

With a fast scan speed and multiplexing capabilities, the Q Exactive mass spectrometer is an outstanding detector for fast chromatography separation techniques.

The superior quality of Q Exactive MS/MS data enables identification and quantitation of more compounds with greater confidence. The Q Exactive LC-MS/MS system not only offers broad screening capabilities but also excels at targeted quantitation experiments, making it a versatile addition to any laboratory. Fast, alternating positive-negative scan modes allow for the most comprehensive approaches, saving time during screening experiments. The benchtop system is ideally suited for drug metabolism, proteomics, environmental analysis, food safety and clinical research applications.
