Thermo Scientific has introduced the TSQ Altis triple stage quadrupole and TSQ Quantis triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometers for targeted quantitation assays. The TSQ Altis mass spectrometer offers sensitivity, selectivity and speed while providing the analytical flexibility and reproducibility for demanding applications. The TSQ Quantis is designed to be a quantitative workhorse.
The TSQ Altis and TSQ Quantis systems are engineered for high-resolution single reaction monitoring (SRM) capabilities, which enables ion transmission and consistency for reproducible results across instruments. In addition, both systems are equipped with Active Ion Management (AIM+) technology that includes redesigned ion source housing, segmented quadrupoles, new RF electronics and an enhanced dual-mode electron multiplier detector. AIM+ technology offers superior reproducibility, sensitivity, more data points with fast SRM rates and increased detector lifetime when compared to previous AIM technology and other triple quadrupole mass spectrometry systems.
The instrument control software for the TSQ Altis and TSQ Quantis offers automated compound optimisation and new tools for streamlined, intuitive method setup. When combined with Thermo Scientific TraceFinder Software, users can improve the targeted quantitation analysis of complex molecule types with simplified workflows, reducing the time to generate high quality results when compared to using the instrument control software alone.
