Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has announced the release of the new GCMS-TQ8050 triple quadrupole gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GC-MS/MS). The new GC-MS/MS is based on Shimadzu’s continually advancing smart technologies that enable it to achieve new possibilities in sensitivity, durability, performance, stability and reliability.

The instrument’s newly designed high-sensitivity detector offers an instrument detection limit approximately 10 times more sensitive than the current system, enabling reliable detection of femtogram-level (parts per quadrillion) concentrations of trace components. Coupled with improved long-term stability due to high amplification levels and reduced noise levels, the GCMS-TQ8050 is ideal for analysts who require the most reliable trace analysis results. This includes analysis of extremely small quantities of dioxin in foods and the environment, POPs components, endocrine disrupting chemicals, impurities in pharmaceuticals, and banned drugs in hair samples.
