Thermo Scientific Introduces Multi-Residue TSQ 8000 Pesticide Analyzer System

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today introduced the Thermo Scientific TSQ 8000 Pesticide Analyzer system, a complete solution to facilitate multi-residue pesticide analysis.

Pesticide Analyzer TSQ8000

The system is built around the popular Thermo Scientific TSQ 8000 triple quadrupole GC-MS system, configured for pesticide analysis to help users harness the power of GC-MS/MS analysis, even with complex methods and technician-level operators. Thermo Fisher will showcase the new system within booth 1835 during Pittcon 2013, being held in Philadelphia from March 17-21, 2013.

The Thermo Scientific TSQ 8000 triple quadrupole GC-MS system addresses the needs of high-throughput laboratories performing trace level quantitation in complex matrices. The TSQ 8000 system takes full advantage of the modularity and flexibility of the instrument’s chromatography section, the award-winning Thermo Scientific TRACE 1310 GC. Combined with the mass spectrometer, this design enhances productivity, performance and robustness.

The pesticide analyzer system includes:

  • A Thermo Scientific TSQ 8000 triple quadrupole GC-MS with preloaded data processing methods
  • Thermo Scientific TraceGOLD column and GC consumables configured for high performance pesticide analysis
  • Step-by-step walkthrough guide for building customized methods
  • A 600+ pesticide compound database with retention times and pre-optimized SRMs (Selected Reaction Monitoring).

“Many laboratories tailor pesticide methods to their own specific requirements, and we developed the TSQ 8000 Pesticide Analyzer system to make this as easy as possible,” said Paul Silcock, product manager, Triple Quadrupole MS, for Thermo Fisher. “Users are guided through creation of customized methods that can be optimized for pesticide detection in complex matrices such as those found in food and environmental samples.”

The AutoSRM feature guides users through the SRM development process, allowing them to add compounds to the database or explore alternative SRM transitions.
