XEVO TQ MS Performance Spec
Ion source transfer optics: High efficiency hexapole ion guide.
Mass analyzer: Two high resolution quadrupole analyzers (MS1/MS2), plus pre-filters to maximize resolution and transmission while preventing contamination of the main analyzers.
Collision cell: T-Wave enabled for optimal MS/MS performance at high data acquisition rates; ScanWave enabled for enhanced MS/MS spectral performance (product ion scanning); Software programmable gas control.
Detector: Low noise, off axis, long life photomultiplier detector; Digital dynamic range up to 4 x 106.
Vacuum system: Two air-cooled vacuum turbomolecular pumps evacuating the source and analyzer; One rotary backing pump.
Acquisition modes: Full scan, MS Product ion scan (ScanWave enhanced), Precursor ion scan, Constant neutral loss, Selected ion recording (SIR),Multiple reaction monitoring (MRM).
Survey scan modes: Full scan MS triggered product ion scan, Precursor ion scan triggered product ion scan, Constant neutral loss triggered product ion scan.
Quan Qual mode: MRM triggered ScanWave enhanced product ion spectral acquisition.
Mass range: 2 to 2048 m/z.
Scan speed: Up to 10,000 Da/s, Examples of achievable acquisition rates: 10 scans per second (m/z 100 to 1000), 20 scans per second (m/z 50 to 500).
Mass stability: Mass drift is less than 0.1 amu over a 24 hour period.
Linearity of response: The linearity of response relative to sample concentration, for a specified compound, is five orders of magnitude from the limit of detection.
Polarity switching time: 20 ms to switch between positive and negative ion modes.
MS to MS/MS switching time: 5 ms.
Inter-channel cross talk:The inter-channel cross talk between two MRM transitions, acquired using an MRM dwell time of 10 ms and an inter-channel delay time of 10 ms, will be less than 0.02%.
Number of MRM channels: Up to 16,384 MRM channels (512 functions, 32 channels per function) can be monitored in a single acquisition. Up to 1024 MRM channels when operating in GLP/secure mode (32 functions, 32 channels per function).
Mass resolution: Automatically adjusted (IntelliStart) to desired resolution; (0.40 Da, 0.75 Da or 1.00 Da FWHM).
MRM sensitivity (ESI+): A 50 fg on-column injection of reserpine will give a chromatographic signal-to-noise greater than 500:1 (Gradient separation, LC mobile phase flow rate of 0.8 mL/min, MRM transition m/z 609 > 195).
MRM sensitivity (ESI-): A1 pg on-column injection of chloramphenicol will give a chromatographic signal-to-noise greater than 1,000:1 (Gradient separation, LC mobile phase flow rate of 0.8 mL/min, MRM transition m/z 321 > 152).
