Mass Spectrometer

Quadrupole Time-of-Flight (TOF) tandem mass spectrometer coupled to a quaternary HPLC system

Model #: Waters Q-TOF Premier

Waters Q-TOF Premier


  • Capable of a variety of ionization options that can apply to a range of compound classes, from small organic molecules to intact proteins of 60kD or more
  • Quaternary HPLC allows for isocratic or gradient elution for chromatographic separations


  • Delivers high sensitivity, resolution, and exact mass measurements for LC/MS applications.
  • High resolution gives the selectivity needed to separate analyte spectra from interferences and background chemical noise.
  • High sensitivity helps to achieve very low detection limits.
  • Exact mass measurements of small molecules give the elemental composition information that can be used to identify these analytes.
