Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the Thermo Scientific ISQ EM single quadrupole mass spectrometer. It has a mass range of 10–2000 m/z, and can detect and quantify small and large molecules, across an extensive range of applications from drug development to manufacturing support and quality control. The system’s heated electrospray ionisation (HESI) and dual HESI/atmospheric pressure chemical ionisation (APCI) probes facilitate the measurement of polar and non-polar analytes.
The ISQ EM is fully controlled by the Thermo Scientific Chromeleon Chromatography Data System (CDS), which offers tools to guide users through LC-MS method development and select appropriate source conditions. Thermo Scientific Chromeleon XPS Open Access software also supports the ISQ EM with walk-up workflows for simple daily operation. Additionally, full integration with native control in Chromeleon CDS enables users to benefit from the entire productivity suite, from method creation through final reporting. A built-in reference standard also automates instrument calibration for a user-friendly experience.
