Tandem triple quadrupole mass spectrometer with ultra performance liquid chromatography and supercritical fluid chromatography


The triple quadrupole mass spectrometer allows for increased sensitivity and specificity yielding lower detection and quantitation limits. TQ-MS can be employed in the fields of drug metabolism, pharmacokinetics, environmental studies, food and biological analyses. In environmental and biological studies, the triple quadrupole is useful for quantitative studies that involved identifying whether or not specific substances are present in a sample.

Ultra performance liquid chromatography allows separation of the mixtures of compounds of high to medium polarity and supercritical fluid chromatography separates compounds of low polarity.

Usage area: Determination of concentrations of individual compounds in complex compound mixtures.

Keywords: chromatography, mass spectrometry, separation, quantitation
