    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 Frequency

    The 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.

Simple Operation, Confident Results

Easy Maintenance

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.

Easy Maintenance
  • One-Touch GC Inlet Maintenance

    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.

  • Easily Analyze a Wide Range of Applications

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.

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.

  • Minimizing the Usage of Helium Gas
  • Minimizing the Usage of Precious Helium Gas

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.

Reliable Operation with Alternative Carrier Gases

Hydrogen Carrier Gas

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.

  • System can be Accessed Remotely

Compact Design Fits Anywhere

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.

  • Energy Savings

    Enregy Saving

    The GCMS-QP2050 is equipped with ecology mode, which can reduce power consumption. It is also recognized as Eco-Products Plus, Shimadzu’s proprietary recognition of environmentally friendly products. In addition to limiting analysis running costs, CO2 emissions are limited, thereby contributing to a carbon-free society.
