Quotient Sciences (formerly Arcinova) Increases GC-MS Capabilities

Quotient Sciences (formerly Arcinova) recently completed the purchase and installation of a new system that doubles capacity in GC-MS and expands analytical capabilities.  

The Thermo Scientific™ TSQ™ Duo triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS system recently installed at Quotient Sciences - Alnwick (formerly Arcinova) is tailored to chromatographers and single quadrupole GC-MS users who need easy access to powerful new workflows through MS/MS and the ability to meet current method requirements. It features selected reaction monitoring (SRM) to cut through heavy matrix backgrounds for clear detection of target compounds, and configurable headspace and liquid injection that allows for a variety of GC and GC-MS applications. Additionally, this system features intelligent functionality that supports increased efficiency in our laboratories.

Quotient Sciences - Alnwick (formerly Arcinova) is equipped with other technologies including an Agilent GC-MS with EI/CI Source and GERSTEL multi-purpose sampler with liquid and headspace capacity, providing us with extra capability when working with small volatile molecules.

Stuart McDougall, Bioanalysis Leader at Quotient Sciences (formerly Arcinova), said of the added capabilities: “We are continuing to invest in state-of-the-art equipment to match our world-class capabilities and expertise, and this new system will play a key part in the expansion of our GC-MS services in Alnwick."
