The Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ GC hybrid quadrupole Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer provides an unmatched combination of sensitivity, mass-accuracy and resolving power in a single analysis for the highest confidence in compound discovery, identification, and quantitation. With best-in-class performance characteristics for both quantitative and discovery workflows, the Q Exactive GC system allows the most comprehensive characterization of complex samples. The full MS scanning sensitivity combined with the selectivity achieved at resolutions of 50,000 and higher provides detection limits comparable to the best GC-triple quadrupoles while operating in an untargeted full MS scan mode. The included chemical ionization source provides soft ionization for pseudomolecular ion generation, and the analytical quadrupole and HCD cell allow for structural characterization experiments through MS/MS fragmentation. This system offers the quantitative power of a GC triple quadrupole MS combined with the high precision, full-scan HRAM capabilities only available in combination with Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap™ technology. For metabolomics analyses an Agilent single quadrupole GC-MS for is coupled to a 5975C inert XL MSD using a Q Exactive Detector.
