Why is SCIEX high-resolution accurate mass technology different?

Don’t get trapped with the wrong high-resolution mass spectrometer

QTOF mass spectrometers have the highest acquisition speed without sacrificing resolution, unlike a trapping instrument architecture, where resolution is directly impacted by scan speed. No longer will you be limiting your analyses by choosing a less flexible system, now you will deliver high resolution data at extremely fast scan speeds, with a virtually unlimited acquisition mass range.

Complete coverage

Identify more compounds in your sample with fast acquisition rates while maintaining high resolution data.
