Austin/USA — Analytical testing laboratories performing high-throughput analysis in the food safety, environmental, pharmaceutical, anti-doping and forensic toxicology sectors can benefit from a simplified high resolution accurate mass gas chromatography-mass spectrometer (GC-MS) designed to provide sensitive data efficiently and confidently, allowing laboratories to speed-up turnaround time and expand their capabilities into new analytical avenues.

The Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris GC-MS brings high-resolution analysis into everyday testing in a compact and easy-to-use instrument, delivering leading sensitivity and mass resolving power up to 60,000. Through an analytical dynamic range across six orders, the new system can provide accurate quantitation and detection of chemical components at trace and high concentrations, for targeted and non-targeted applications. The capability to acquire accurate mass data in full scan allows for multiple compound identification points, simplifying data acquisition, facilitating retrospective data analysis and accelerating instrument set-up for increased uptime and productivity.

The Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris GC 240 MS brings an elevated level of flexibility, speed and accuracy to research applications, enabling academic and industry laboratories identifying unknown compounds or working in areas such as metabolomics to drive innovation, the company announced. Through a resolving power of 240,000 and analytical dynamic range across six orders, this new system offers researchers the capability to achieve new depths of analysis and progress scientific understanding.

By delivering both quantitative and qualitative information from a single injection, the new system enables precise and comprehensive compound identification, allowing researchers to make fast and accurate discoveries with confidence. As research laboratories require the versatility to answer myriad questions in their studies, the Orbitrap Exploris GC 240 MS also provides the flexibility to tackle a diverse range of analytical challenges, from identifying unknown contaminants and extractables and leachables, to applied quantification and metabolomics. The system offers the capability of MS/MS for compound structural information and both electron and chemical ionization without system venting to speed up time to result.

Addressing the need for increased flexibility, speed and accuracy in research applications throughout academic and industry laboratories, a new gas chromatography (GC) high-resolution mass spectrometer (MS) with unrivalled mass resolving power, sensitivity and wide dynamic range offers researchers the capability to achieve new depths of analysis and drive scientific understanding. With new-generation system architecture and instrument control software, the system provides simple yet powerful data acquisition capabilities, addressing the most demanding analytical challenges.

The new system, along with the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris GC 240, extends the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris portfolio of high-resolution accurate mass systems, which is now comprised of the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris 480 mass spectrometer, launched in 2019, and the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris 240 and Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris 120 mass spectrometers, launched in 2020.
