The Waters Micromass ZQ 2000 is a robust, single quadrupole mass spectrometer. This highly sensitive system has a mass range (amu) up to 2000 daltons; easily qualify and quantify small molecules in a flash. Both inlet probes are quickly and easily interchangeable without breaking vacuum. Flow rates allowed are 5-1000 µl/min (ESI) and 200-2000 µl/min (APCI).
The ZQ-2000 offers the advantages of an embedded PC, a primary advantage being fast signal processing. The ZQ is able to scan at 5000 Dalton/second, a real advantage for LC/MS applications. Fast scanning allows the acquisition of more data points per second, resulting in better peak shape, better integration and better reproducibility.
