GCMS-QP2050 - Features
Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer
Minimum Maintenance, Maximum Progress
Contamination-Resistant Ion Optical System
A contamination-resistant ion optical system in the GCMS-QP2050 keeps the frequency of maintenance to a minimum while also enabling highly reliable measurements to be performed for an extended period.
DuraEase Ion Source
The structure of the next-generation DuraEase ion source is inert and achieves a uniform temperature distribution, resulting in high sensitivity and exceptional durability.
Quadrupole Rods with Pre-Rod
The built-in pre-rod allows only the ions to efficiently pass through, limiting contamination of the quadrupole. In addition, because heating to prevent contamination is not required, it is maintenance-free.
Long-Life Filament with 1/5th the Conventional Replacement FrequencyThe newly developed long-life filament has an operating life at least five times longer than conventional filaments. There are no concerns about re-analysis or downtime due to sudden filament burnout.
High Durability in Consecutive Analyses
The GCMS-QP2050, which boasts incomparable robustness, achieves extremely stable measurements, even during consecutive analyses of VOCs in water, by eliminating the effects of elution of the column bleed to the utmost limit.

Simple Operation, Confident Results
Ion Source Maintenance Takes Just One Minute
With the DuraEase ion source, the conventional ion source structure has been completely revised, in pursuit of more convenient maintenance. The ion source is disposable and no cleaning is required, so maintenance is finished in just one minute.
One-Touch GC Inlet Maintenance
The instrument is equipped as standard with a ClickTek™ nut, enabling the GC injection port to be attached or detached simply by manipulating a lever by hand, without tools.
Easy Startup and Shutdown from the Touch Panel
The vacuum system can be turned ON/OFF and Easy sTop* can be performed from the GC touch panel. Operations from a personal computer are not required, so maintenance of the GC injection port, column, and ion source can proceed with ease.
* This function guides the user through the replacement of the GC injection port septum and glass insert without turning OFF the vacuum system.
Anyone can Achieve Analysis Results
Examination of the analytical conditions is indispensable for acquiring better data. The GCMS-QP2050 reduces the burden of examining these conditions, allowing even novice users to acquire data on par with an experienced operator.
Easily Analyze a Wide Range of Applications
With the completely new ion source and detector, the system is more than capable of detecting even trace compounds.
The new interface, which minimizes the production of cold spots, enables the acquisition of favorable peak shapes and sensitivity, even for compounds prone to adsorption.
Ultra Fast Scanning Technology Supports Accurate Measurements
Advances to Shimadzu’s impressive high-speed scan technology result in the industry's highest level of 30,000 u/sec. As a result, sensitivity on par with SIM analysis can be obtained even with FASST*1. In addition, Advanced Scanning Speed Protocol (ASSP™*2) minimizes sensitivity loss, even when the Scan measurement range is widened, enabling accurate qualitative analysis.
*1 Fast Automated Scan/SIM Type: In this measurement mode, switching rapidly between Scan mode and SIM mode enables high-sensitivity SIM analysis and Scan analysis for component confirmation to be performed simultaneously in a single analysis.
*2 By automatically optimizing the rod bias voltage during high-speed scans, this control technology minimizes sensitivity drops during high-speed scans.

Maximize Efficiency of the Entire Workflow
The efficiency of the analysis workflow is maximized by equipping the system and software with Analytical Intelligence, our latest user support technology.
Automatic Creation of Analysis MethodsSmart SIM™+ automatically creates the optimal analysis method. As a result, high-sensitivity and high-accuracy analysis is possible, even in multicomponent quantitative analysis.
Database Optimized for Each Field
The compounds that need to be measured for each application are registered in Smart Database™. The optimized analytical conditions enable favorable measurement results to be obtained regardless of the operator's experience level.
Time Management for the Measurement Workflow
The operational status of each instrument in the laboratory and the finishing time of consecutive analyses can be assessed in real time. Additionally, the time remaining until completion of instrument startup and shutdown is displayed. This improves laboratory productivity and heightens efficiency.
Automatic Peak Integration by Artificial Intelligence
Peakintelligence™ for GCMS, which is equipped with AI peak integration algorithms, significantly shortens the time required for peak integration and provides results comparable to those obtained by an experienced operator.
Improved Throughput for Multisample Data Analysis
The LabSolutions™ Insight multisample quantitative support software significantly reduces the time needed to analyze multisample data. Using flag, filter, and peak comparison functions, the multisample data can be narrowed down to the components that should be the focus.
The Easy sTop function enables safe maintenance of the sample injection port without stopping the vacuum. The standby time until maintenance can be performed is shown in real time.
One Instrument, Infinite Possibilities
Conquering Helium Shortages
Minimizing the Usage of Helium Gas
Using the included carrier gas save function makes it possible to reduce the amount of carrier gas used during analysis. Additionally, with the optional gas selector, the carrier gas can be switched from helium to nitrogen except during analysis, thereby minimizing helium gas consumption during standby.
Reliable Operation with Alternative Carrier Gases
Hydrogen and nitrogen, which cost less and are easier to acquire, can be used as the carrier gas. With its high-performance flow controller and a design that reduces the impact of the carrier gas, the GCMS-QP2050 can perform stable measurements using either gas without modifying the instrument configuration.
Hydrogen Carrier Gas
Hydrogen is the first choice as an alternative carrier gas from the perspective of sensitivity and separation. By installing the optional hydrogen sensor, if a leak occurs, the system automatically switches to safe standby mode, adding a level of comfort to anyone concerned about using hydrogen.
Nitrogen Carrier Gas
The GCMS-QP2050 demonstrates its true value when nitrogen is used as the carrier gas. In constant linear velocity mode, the system achieves separation on par with helium even when using nitrogen carrier gas, which has a narrow range of optimal linear velocities.
A Flexible Fit to Laboratories
Remote System Access
The system can be operated from a personal computer or tablet on the network via a LAN connection. Additionally, analysis and instrument status can be checked while away from the laboratory.
Compact Design Fits Anywhere
The GCMS-QP2050 saves on space. Thanks to remote access, there is no need to install a personal computer beside the instrument. This enables a flexible layout in the laboratory.
