Scion can provide GC-MS systems, custom and standard, following standardized industry methods and approaches to ensure both, agreement with their clients on product specification and quality of results. High availability of the whole infrastructure with a 24/7 uptime, high end-to-end redundancy as well as high-level automation is a key requirement that can be achieved best with help of our GC/MS solutions dedicated to this type of industry.
SCION SQ GC-MS
The SCION (SQ) GC-MS 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. As ions pass through a mass spectrometer a significant portion is lost every time they encounter a lens. Due to its unique design the SCION SQ doesn’t have any lenses thus increasing the sensitivity of the instrument by reducing ion losses. Another major advantage of having no lenses the source is the only part to clean, so you can spend more time analyzing samples and less time maintaining your instrument. The SQ is integrated with our SCION 436 or 456 GC as sole or as 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
Regardless of sample type or throughput, SCION GC-MS’s can provide an automated solution to meet your requirements. Two SCION sampler options are available, the 8400 and 8410. Each can be tailored to meet specific sampling needs and workloads. Third party samplers like TELEDYNE TEKMAR Versa head-space sampler and CTC PAL-xt systems are easily integrated.
- 8400 AutoSampler; 100 sample capacity
- 8410 AutoInjector; low cost, accommodates 2, 5 and 10 ml vials
- dual/duplicate injection
Technical & Application Notes
How the SCION GC-MS can work for the Chemical market
How the SCION GC-MS can work for the Pharmaceutical market
SCION’s SQ GC-MS combines highest sensitivity with a maximum of sample throughput and lowest down time which is a key requirement for Pharma where it can be used in analytical research in the initial research process of new drug screening, during the subsequent process of chemical/biological synthesis, the routine quality control and quality assurance of bulk drugs, formulations, manufactured drugs and packing materials, the characterization and quantification of impurities in drug components (impurity profiling), and the quantification of the active ingredient (API) and its metabolized degradation products in non-clinical pharmacokinetic studies. Besides support of the multi-stage pharmaceutical process of drug development, synthesis and production SCION’s SQ GC-MS finds its place also in many fields of medicine, like clinical toxicology and drug abuse, or newborn screening tests for inborn error of metabolism just to name some fields where sensitivity, reliablity and maximum uptime plays a significant role.
