There are two main types of spectrometric tools in the LCMS-IT-TOF Mass Spectrometer. To combat the initial technological challenges that were caused at combination of QIT (ion trap) and TOF (time-of-flight) techniques, this new type of mass spectrometer was released. The new technology, including the source design, reduced collision ion focusing Q-Array and desolvation capillary was adapted from Shimadzu‘s successful single-quad HPLC mass spectrometer. The presence of Octapole Lens uses the CII (Compressed Ion Injection) method to combat the situation.
Type of analyzer:TOF, QIT
Detector type:LC/MS/MS, coupled to a mass spectrometer
