Q Exactive Plus Mass Spectrometer


Last updated on 2024-03-03T02:26:52+00:00 by LN Anderson

The Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ Plus Mass Spectrometer benchtop LC-MS/MS system combines quadruple precursor ion selection with high-resolution, accurate-mass (HRAM) Orbitrap detection to deliver exceptional performance and versatility. Quadrupole technology optimizes precursor selection and transmission, improving quantitation of low-abundance ions in the most complex matrices. Sophisticated parallel reaction monitoring and data independent analysis provide reproducible quantitation results while delivering complete qualitative confidence. An optional intact protein mode enhances analysis of intact proteins through sophisticated ion beam control and easy collision pressure adjustment, while optional 280,000 maximum resolving power ensures superior ID confidence. The Q Exactive Mass Spectrometer is equally useful for un-targeted or targeted screening and a broad range of qualitative and quantitative applications in top-down proteomics and Lipidomics applications.
