Thermo LXQ Linear Ion Trap MS/MS

Great Condition • Fully Tested & Expertly Refurbished.

Designed for drug discovery, forensics, proteomics and a variety of industrial applications, the LXQ offers fast cycle time with the increased sensitivity of a linear ion trap.

The predecessor to the Thermo LTQ XL, the Thermo LXQ is an advanced linear ion trap mass spectrometer that comprises a syringe pump, a divert/inject valve, an MS detector, and the Xcalibur data system. The LXQ MS detector consists of an atmospheric pressure ionization (API) source, ion optics, mass analyzer, and ion detection system.

You can operate the LXQ using any of four ionization techniques: Electrospray Ionization (ESI); Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization (APCI); Atmospheric Pressure Photoionization (APPI); Nanospray Ionization (NSI). Because these four techniques use the same ion source interface (that is, the portion of the API source that is under vacuum), you can switch between these in just a few minutes. Switching ionization techniques merely involves switching the probes and does not break vacuum.


  • High sensitivity for detection of multiple analytes in complex matrices
  • Confident structural identification and quantification
  • Fast cycle times for high-throughput analyses
  • Patented linear ion trap design enables high-quality MSn characterization
  • Routine protein and peptide analysis

The LXQ's combination of fast cycle time and high spectral quality is key to quickly screening for drugs and their metabolites. The LXQ’s high accuracy and precision for quantitative analysis, along with a linear dynamic range of four orders of magnitude, delivers quantification and robustness for forensics. Increase your productivity with the outstanding robustness of the LXQ and the Ion Max source. The LXQ delivers highly sensitive, rapid screening for proteomics.

The GenTech Difference

Why Buy New When You Don't Have To? Our refurbished LC/MS Systems have been expertly restored to meet OEM standards. GenTech is a full service reseller, our knowledgeable engineers perform installations, repairs, training and method development. The inventory in our 60,000 sq. foot facility is constantly changing with new shipments coming in daily. GenTech customers receive lifetime phone support for all instruments they purchase.

How we refurbish used analytical instruments

Every refurbished instrument we sell under goes a complete inspection of all electronics and performance review. The instruments undergo in-depth preventative maintenance procedures that include extensive cleaning, detector maintenance, line and pump flushing. Routine maintenance is also addressed and filters, liners, tubing, etc. are all replaced as needed. Our chemist perform full calibration and data verification. Once used LC/MS Systems are returned to like-new condition and will run your samples for 30-80% off retail.

This refurbished Thermo LXQ Linear Ion Trap MS/MS is calibrated to meet OEM standards. Our expert service engineers and chemists can install and custom configure the system to be compliant with the Methods you plan to run.
