New high-performance hardware
The JMS-T2000GC AccuTOF™ GC-Alpha is the 6th generation JEOL GC-TOFMS and has an improved ion optics system to achieve ultra-high resolution.
The AccuTOF™ GC-Alpha is an orthogonal-acceleration time-of-flight mass spectrometer(oaTOFMS) with dual stage reflectron. It employs an ideal ion optical system realizing both high ion transmission(=sensitivity) and ultra-high resolution.
Mass resolution and mass accuracy – Crucial for qualitative analysis
The Resolving power of a time-of-flight mass spectrometer is calculated according to the formula above. With this equation in mind, the new JMS-T2000GC AccuTOF™ GC-Alpha hardware was designed to achieve ultra-high resolution using the following principles:
- Make t longer: increase the flight distance 4 m
- Make Δ t smaller: new ion optical system using dual stage reflectron
- Make Δ t smaller: ion transfer system that can accommodate ions with a wide range of kinetic energy
With the newly developed hardware, the AccuTOF™ GC-Alpha features 6 times higher resolution than the first generation AccuTOF™ GC and has a mass accuracy of ≤ 1 ppm.
Acquiring unrivaled high-quality data, the AccuTOF™ GC-Alpha is the ultimate solution for GC-MS qualitative analysis.
A new generation of analysis software for simple, speedy operation
A new workflow has been devised to identify unknown compounds by GC-MS. In this workflow, the data analysis is performed by integrating the data obtained by hard ionization (EI) and the data obtained by soft ionization (FI, PI, CI) in order to identify the analytes present in a sample.
Since its introduction in 2018, the msFineAnalysis software for the AccuTOF™ GC series has been well received as an innovative software solution for the automatic qualitative analysis of unknown compounds.
This software makes full use of the high-quality data obtained by the AccuTOF™ GC-Alpha, thus providing a new approach to qualitative analysis for identification of unknown compounds.
Evolution into Version 3
Version 3 of msFineAnalysis streamlines the software operation and adds a new function in which 2 similar samples can be directly compared for differential analysis. This new, enhanced version of msFineAnalysis allows the operator to easily accomplish qualitative analysis of unknown compounds as well as for compounds that are unregistered in the EI mass spectral libraries.
