Benefits of the GC MS MS

The Clarus 680 is a high throughput gas chromatograph which can run ballistic thermal gradients for short analysis times and fast cool down cycles. The Q-TOF MS/MS allows identification and quantitation of specific analytes in complex samples. The cold EI source enhances the generation of molecular ions, which greatly simplifies the identification of unknown compounds. The fully programmable CombiPal autosampler enables on-line sample extraction and derivatization, along with headspace and SPME sampling modes.
