Waters Corporation recently unveiled several new mass spectrometry innovations, including the Waters Xevo TQ MS System, an advanced tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer that allows scientists with varying levels of mass spectrometry (MS) expertise to quickly produce the highest quality data with confidence.
The Xevo TQ MS System is an advanced tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer designed to deliver unrivalled performance and functionality. It uses IntelliStart and ScanWave technologies to deliver versatility and advanced quantitative capability to a broader range of scientists. IntelliStart is new technology that simplifies instrument setup and time-intensive troubleshooting. It automatically ensures the system is ready for use by performing mass calibration, setting MS resolution, generating compound-specific MS methods (SIR or MRM), and optimizing API source conditions for specific analytical conditions plus much more.
The Xevo TQ MS System operating under MassLynx Software is equipped with a unique collision cell that can be operated in conventional T-Wave1-enabled mode or in a new ScanWave-enabled mode. The ScanWave uses T-Wave collision cell technology to improves duty cycle and enhance the full scan capability to meet the demands of complex analyses.
