ITQ Series GC-Ion Trap MS

Thermo Scientific ITQ Series GC-Ion Trap MS offers outstanding full-scan electron ionization sensitivity and upgradeability.

From a small-footprint entry-level QA/QC instrument to a fully-featured, research-grade system with advanced MSn functionality, the Thermo Scientific ITQ Series offers a broad range of standard features along with an impressive list of options. As needs change, the ITQ Series offers upgrade options to expand instrument capabilities and add flexibility and versatility. The ITQ Series is supported by Productivity Solutions and workflow-oriented software packages.

External Ionization Ion Source

  • Standard on all ITQ systems, with independently-controlled heating from 125 to 300°C for stable operation and excellent chromatographic integrity
  • Spectral integrity is enhanced when ionization takes place external to the trap, and the system stays cleaner longer, for improved uptime and longer periods between cleaning


Quadrupole Ion Trap Mass Analyzer

  • Unit mass resolution throughout the mass range
  • Durable inert materials for long life
  • Automatic gain control ensures that the ion trap is always filled with the optimum number of ions


Detection System

  • Digital electronic noise discrimination enhances sensitivity
  • Post-acceleration +10kV conversion dynode offers efficient positive and negative ion detection


Configurations Available for ITQ Series

  • Direct Sample Probe
  • Directly analyze solids or liquids without chromatographic separation and without moving the GC by using the Direct Sample Probe
  • Chemical Ionization
  • Use chemical ionization for added selectivity and sensitivity
  • Both positive and negative chemical ionization modes are supported, and digital reagent gas flow control ensures method stability and reproducibility


Features Standard on the ITQ 1100, Optional for ITQ 700 and ITQ 900

  • MSn with ACE and PQD
  • Routinely test for compounds in matrix that cannot typically be detected with other GC/MS techniques
  • Automated Collision Energy (ACE): Automatically calculates an estimated optimal collision energy based on product ion m/z and damping gas flow rates; Runs at three energies across each scan
  • Pulsed Q Dissociation Mode (PQD): Generate information-rich mass spectral data, even in the low mass range; Produces precise, reproducible fragmentation
  • Vacuum Probe Interlock
  • Restore system performance, change from EI to CI, or use the direct sample probe, all without venting the instrument using the Vacuum Probe Interlock
