chromatography-mass spectrometer GCMS-QP2010NC Plus


The GCMS-QP2010 Plus expands on the leading-edge capabilities of the GCMS-QP2010 to deliver the Shimadzu trademarks of superior performance, flexibility, and quality.


Unmatched Sensitivity
A new and improved ion source (patent pending) features more uniform temperature control, a new filament that resists deformity, and an expanded temperature range of 100 to 300°C. These features work together to offer users world-class sensitivity for 1pg of OFN.

High-Performance Vacuum
Unlike the GCMS-QP2010 and GCMS-QP2010S, the new GCMS-QP2010 Plus employs a dual inlet Turbo Molecular Pump (TMP) that provides increased sensitivity and column flow capacity for improved performance and confident results.

Fast GCMS: FASST (Fast Automated SIM/Scan Type)
With FASST a new chapter of Fast GCMS is opened by Shimadzu. The GCMS-QP2010 Plus offers the possibility to acquire Scan as well as SIM data on one peak. Quantitation of both data sets is also possible. With a data acquisition frequency of 50 data points/second in Scan mode and up to 100 in SIM mode, data of excellent quality are obtained. This plays an important role for both quantitative and qualitative analysis as the quality of the library search is determined by the quality of the spectra.

More Powerful Software
The GCMS-QP2010 Plus utilizes the latest version of GCMSsolution software, which features:

  • Simultaneous Scan/SIM Modes - enable detailed information on compounds of interest without sacrificing data across the entire mass spectrum
  • AART (Automatic Adjustment of Retention Time) - identifies and quantifies all compounds automatically after a column change, without compromise in analysis parameters, ensuring precision and accuracy of target compounds
    • This version is the first in the world to support LRI
    • Download our AART whitepaper here (pdf - 1.2mb)
  • COAST (Creation of Automatic SIM (SIM/Scan) Table - The COAST function allows easy setup of SIM parameters using the SIM table automatic creation function, and enables appropriate parameters to also be set automatically when using FASST. It is also easy to set all the compounds for FASST measurement and create the Scan/SIM parameters automatically, making it simple to obtain high-sensitivity SIM chromatograms.

In addition to this new technology, the GCMS-QP2010 Plus shares the same capabilities of the GCMS-QP2010 including:

  • Easy Switching Between EI, PCI and NCI Modes
  • Constant Linear Velocity
  • Advanced Flow Control
  • Multiple Injector/Detector Options
  • Design Innovations for Improved Functionality and Easy Maintenance
