High Resolution Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer

The all new Extrel MAXCS-50 Series quadrupole mass spectrometer from Henniker Scientific has been released and directly addresses research applications requiring high sensitivity gas analysis of low molecular weight species.

At the heart of the instrument is a high specification quadrupole mass filter assembly, featuring a precision machined 19mm quadrupole rod set with RF-only preand post-filter stages, stabilizing rods and the latest high stability CS Series RF generator that in combination deliver exceptional transmission, resolution and abundance sensitivity characteristics at low masses.

Typical applications include geochronology isotope ratio measurements and helium-deuterium gas purity analysis, where the instrument’s exceptional resolution is able to resolve adjacent mass peaks separated by only a few hundredths of an atomic mass unit even at low concentration.

The MAXCS-50 is available as a fully UHV compatible bolt-on probe or with application matched pressure reduction stages which address a wide range of atomic, molecular and surface analysis studies.
