Thermo Electron TSQ Quantum Ultra

TSQ Quantum triple quadrupole system performsvarious types of scans including highlyselectivereactionmonitoring(H-SRM) which analyzes complex samples quickly and efficiently. It is ideal for qualitative and quantitative analyses of individual compounds and complex mixtures.

The instrument is used for targeted qualitative and quantitative analyses of various types of compounds including carbohydrates (sulfated saccharides), drugs (dichlofenac, acetaminophen, rafimpin, fingolimod, resiquimod, suramin, estrogens), environmental pollutants (PFOAs, PFOSs, antibiotics, artificial sweeteners), natural products (marijuana/hemp), vitamins.

Manufacturer: ThermoFisher Scientific
