 Enhance Your Lab’s GC/MS Capabilities with the GCT Premier Technology Platform
The GCT Premier is a powerful orthogonal acceleration time-of-flight (oa-TOF) GC/MS that offers fast acquisition of full spectrum data with high sensitivity, extended dynamic range and elevated resolution. The GCT Premier’s elevated resolution minimizes the likelihood of mass interference. Exact mass capability, which leads to elemental composition determination, offers another dimension over traditional GC/MS.

With the GCT Premier, your lab will benefit from:

Compact Size: Powerful oa-TOF with reflectron technology minimizing linear bench space without sacrificing performance

Elevated Resolution: 7000 FWHM

Exact Mass Measurement: Sub-5 ppm RMS with internal lock mass correction

Sensitivity: High duty cycle compared to scanning instruments providing low- and sub-picogram sensitivity with full spectra

Dynamic Range: Enhanced up to four orders for both exact measurement and quantitative analysis

High Spectral Sampling Rate: Ion beam sampled up to 25,000 times per second eliminating spectral skew associated with traditional scanning instruments

High Spectral Acquisition Rate: Up to 20 spectra per second can be acquired to disk, enabling narrow chromatographic peaks to be accommodated and enhancing the performance of spectral deconvolution routines

Versatile Range of Sources and Probes: A full range of source and probe options are available, including Electron Impact (EI), Chemical Ionization (CI), Desorption Chemical Ionization (DCI), Field Ionization (FI), Field Desorption (FD) and Direct Insertion Probe (DIP) GC and AutoSampler Control: Integrated control of Agilent 6890N GC and Agilent 7683, and CTC-GCPal and CTC-CombiPal autosamplers

ChromaLynx Application Manager: Facilitates the rapid detection, identification and semi-quantitative determination of components in complex mixtures while enabling the comparison of sample and control extracts

MarkerLynx db Application Manager: Dynamic statistical processing and visualization of complex data sets for metabolomic and metabonomic applications

TargetLynx Application Manager: Dedicated target compound quantitation software allowing easy method setup and a full range of regulatory QC checks

OpenLynx Application Manager: Automated exact mass processing for batch confirmation of synthetics

Maximize Detection Capabilities with Dynamic Range Enhancement (DRE)
The advantage of the full mass range spectra produced by the GCT Premier enables a wide range of components, both known and unknown, to be detected with high sensitivity. Full mass range spectra are beneficial when trying to characterize samples in terms of identity and quantity.

The extended dynamic range of the GCT Premier delivers up to four orders of magnitude for exact mass measurement and quantitative studies allowing you to maximize information produced from a single analysis.

Increase Productivity with Rapid Spectral Sampling and Acquisition Rate
The GCT Premier samples the source ion beam at 25,000 times per second. This eliminates the spectral skew associated with scanning instruments, which means that accurate spectra and quantitative data can be obtained with fewer scans over the chromatographic peak. In addition, the high spectral acquisition rate (up to 20 spectra per second) enables narrow chromatographic peaks to be processed. In combination with Waters deconvolution algorithm, pure spectra can be obtained from partially co-eluting components in complex chromatograms.

Additional Techniques Provide Enhanced Versatility
The variety of ionization and probe techniques available on the GCT Premier Mass Spectrometer maximizes the amount of information that can be obtained across a wide range of sample types.
