Shimadzu GCMS-TQ8050



The need for highly sensitive instruments to detect ultra-trace level contaminants has never been more important in industries such as food safety and environmental. The Shimadzu triple quadrupole GCMS-TQ8050 gas chromatograph mass spectrometer, offering the highest sensitivity in its class, easily meets this need.


  • Better amplification performance that maximizes use of Off-Axis Ion Optics made possible by new long-life detector 
  • Contamination-resistant ion source coupled with a new long life-detector ensure reliable analysis with less maintenance requirements 
  • Large-capacity turbomolecular pump with improved exhaust efficiency allows for higher sensitivity and stability 
  • Smart MRM technologies coupled with the use of LabSolutions Insight improve ease of method creation and data review 
  • High-speed scan and data acquisition using Advance Scanning Speed Protocol (AASP) to achieve speeds up to 20,000 u/sec across all masses 
  • Ecology mode reduces costs associated with power and carrier gas consumption 
  • Various configurations enable optimal performance for specific analytical needs
