The TSQ Plus triple quadrupole mass spectrometer (MS; photo) portfolio is said to increase workflow throughput through superior data acquisition and polarity switching speeds. The improved low-mass product ion-transmission efficiency enhances sensitivity for key target applications. The new portfolio, which consists of the TSQ Altis Plus, TSQ Quantis Plus and TSQ Fortis Plus MS, can be used across a range of applications, from targeted quantitation to cutting-edge research. Intuitive mass-calibration routines and method optimization, in combination with chromatography and data-processing software solutions, offers improved ease of use to address future analytical challenges. — Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., San Jose, Calif.
