Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.. (3/1/10). "Press Release: Thermo Scientific Chromatography Innovations Revealed at Pittcon 2010. Improved Performance and Increased Productivity from Sample Preparation to Final Detection and Quantitation". Orlando, FL.

Region Region Orlando, FL
  Country United States (USA)
Organisation Organisation Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE: TMO)
  Group Thermo Fisher (Group)
Products Product TSQ Quantum XLS triple quadrupole GC/MS system
  Product 2 TraceGOLD GC capillary column

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, introduced three new offerings in its chromatography product line at Pittcon 2010: the Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantum XLS triple quadrupole gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS) system, Thermo Scientific TraceGOLD GC capillary columns and National Scientific mass spec-certified vials. When integrated, these instruments and consumables deliver improved performance, accuracy, sensitivity and increased productivity from sample preparation to final detection and quantitation. The new products are designed for analytical testing in applications including food safety and environmental analysis where performance, robustness and lower lifecycle costs are critical. The company will showcase this combination at Thermo Scientific booth 2757 during Pittcon 2010, being held February 28 - March 5, in Orlando.

The Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantum XLS offers precision, sensitivity and productivity. Featuring the new DuraBriteTM IRIS high-sensitivity ion source, the TSQ Quantum XLSTM delivers ion source inertness, sensitivity in the low femtogram range and higher quantitative precision at trace levels, bolstering its leading position in performance and stability. The Quantum XLS is designed to increase productivity in the lab by combining its high-precision hyperbolic quadrupole rod analyzer with high-speed data acquisition and a significant upgrade in software. Designed to allow quantitation and confirmation in a single analysis, the Quantum XLS provides analytical speed and flexibility. The unique 90-degree collision cell virtually eliminates background noise for high signal-to-noise ratio detection. Additionally, highly inert and exchangeable ion volumes allow for quick preventive maintenance, improving laboratory efficiencies by significantly reducing downtime.

The ultra-low bleed Thermo Scientific TraceGOLD GC capillary columns provide outstanding run-to-run and column-to-column reproducibility for data consistency and extended column life. The columns are extremely inert, ensuring that peak shapes are obtained, even for highly active or difficult compounds that often cause peak tailing. Reduced column bleed minimizes the risk of contamination of the mass spectrometer while extending the interval between scheduled maintenance. High sensitivity levels are obtained with low baseline noise, resulting in improved limits of detection and enhanced resolution for low-level analytes. Even between batches, every column provides the same high-quality performance, generating valid and reliable data for any gas chromatography application.

The new low-particulate National Scientific mass spec-certified, pre-cleaned chromatography vials are produced under strict quality control protocols for uniformity. The chromatography vials are cleaned and tested as standard in a GMP-compliant, fully validated cleanroom environment to minimize the possibility of contamination. Each lot is tested for particle counts, as well as liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS) and gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS) background, to ensure that each vial provides consistently high performance. The packaging is also pre-cleaned to ensure product integrity, making the National Scientific mass spec-certified vials ideal for a wide range of highly sensitive chromatography applications.
