Waters Acquity TQD Mass Spectrometer

The Waters Acquity TQ Detector is an advanced bench top tandem quadrupole mass detector designed for ultra high performance LC/MS/MS applications. With a wide range of ionization options including Atmospheric Pressure Photo Ionization (APPI) and the Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP), the TQD Mass Spec is ideally suited for a wide range of qualitative and quantitative applications.

The system includes IntelliStart Technology, for automated system optimization and status monitoring, ensuring that the highest quality data is routinely available to users of all levels


  • Examples of achievable acquisition rates: 10 scans per second (m/z 100 to 1000), 20 scans per second (m/z 50 to 500)
  • Optimized MS/MS detection for demanding quantitative applications
  • Rapid data acquisition rates for the best in accuracy and reproducibility of chromatographic peak area measurement
  • Robust ZSpray atmospheric pressure ionization interface
  • Versatile range of ionization options
  • Industry-leading multimode capability in a single run
  • Automated instrument optimization and quantitative method development tools
  • Dedicated application managers for your specialized analytical requirements

Mass Analyzer: Two high resolution quadrupole analyzers (MS1/MS2), plus prefilters to maximize resolution and transmission while preventing contamination of the main analyzers.

Ion Source Transfer Optics: High efficiency hexapole ion guide

IntelliStart Technology: System parameter checks and alerts. Integrated sample/calibrant delivery system plus programmable divert valve. Automated mass calibration. Automated sample tuning. Automated MRM and SIR method development. LC/MS System Check – automated on-column performance test
