Transition from GC-MS to GC-MS/MS is also smooth
GC-MS methods can also be used for GC-MS/MS
Methods created for the QP2020/QP2010 series can also be used with the TQ series. This means that GC-MS/MS analysis can be carried out using existing methods when transitioning from the QP2020/QP2010 series to the TQ series. This results in a great reduction in the number of working hours needed for the transition, since there is no need for redoing the settings for the GC conditions or the analysis parameters. Moreover, equivalent scan spectra can be obtained from the QP2020/QP2010 series and the TQ series, so existing mass spectral libraries can be used for both QP2020/QP2010 series and the TQ series.
MRM methods can easily be created from SIM methods
When you have a SIM method that has already been created, the MRM Optimization Tool is used to search for the optimum transition and collision energy. Since MRM methods can easily be created from accumulated data, transition to GC-MS/MS is quite smooth.
Similarity of software procedures results in lower training costs
Data acquisition and analysis can be carried out within an operating environment that is common to both GC-MS and GC-MS/MS. The operator does not need to learn new procedures, so training costs are reduced.
