The Q-Tof micro hybrid quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometer is available with electrospray ionisation (ESI) and atmospheric pressure chemical ionisation (APcI).
Q-Tof micro utilises a high performance, research grade quadrupole mass analyser, incorporating a prefilter assembly to protect the main analyser from contaminating deposits, and an orthogonal acceleration time of flight (TOF) mass spectrometer. A hexapole collision cell, between the two mass analysers, can be used to induce fragmentation to assist in structural investigations.
Ions emerging from the second mass analyser are detected by the microchannel plate detector and ion counting system
A PC computer runs the MassLynx NT software system to control Q-Tof micro, and to acquire and process data.
