Orbitrap technology

The Q Exactive is a hybrid mass spectrometer combining the performance of a quadrupole for precursor selection with high accuracy and an Orbitrap for high resolution / accurate mass (HR/AM) detection.

This configuration increases the scanning speed and offers a new possibility of multiplexing, making it compatible with ultra-fast chromatography.

The Q Exactive is suitable for routine analyses for bottom-up protein identification as well as semi-quantitative (isotope labelling) and targeted PRM (parallel reaction monitoring) analyses thanks to the high resolution provided by the orbitrap.
