Waters Q-ToF Premier MALDI/ESI Tandem Mass Spectrometer

Q-TOF provides:

  • Intact protein mass determinations by direct ESI infusion and data analysis.
  • Filtering of sample ions, based on their mass-to-charge ratio (m/z).
  • Separation of ions in a quadrupole based on the stability of their trajectories in the oscillating electric fields that are applied to the rods.

Typical Applications:

  • Where particular ions of interest are being studied because they can stay tuned on a single ion for extended periods of time.
  • Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry or gas chromatography-mass spectrometry where they serve as exceptionally high specificity detectors.
  • Reasonably priced and make good multi-purpose instruments.
