8700 Single Quad GC-MS

8700 Single Quad GC-MS

The SCION 8700 Single Quadrupole (SQ) Mass Spectrometer (MS) is a powerful detector complimenting our GC portfolio and is designed for today’s fast paced analytical laboratory. Innovative design features such as a Lens-Free ion path, heated ion optics and an Extended Dynamic Range (EDR) detector enable the SCION SQ to deliver accurate quantification and identification on a routine basis, even in complex matrices. 

The SCION SQ GC-MS system offers increased sensitivity due to its lens-free design, which significantly reduces ion loss as they pass through the instrument. Additionally, the source is the only component requiring regular cleaning and maintenance, so you can spend less time on regular maintenance, meaning downtime is reduced with throughput increased.

The SQ is fully compatible with SCION 8300 or 8500 GC systems and can be used as a standalone instrument or as an additional detector.


  • Innovative lens-free ion path delivers simplifies tuning
  • Off axis source and detector increase sensitivity
  • Active focusing Q0
  • Dual filament source increases uptime
  • Compound-based scanning software
