Our priority is the purchase of a Triple Quadrupole GC-TQMS consisting of a Gas Chromatograph (GC) coupled to a high sensitivity Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer (TQ-MS) and combined with automated analyte concentration and GC introduction methods for volatiles that enable the analysis of volatile compounds from diverse and sometimes difficult sample matrices.
Plant & Food Research is looking for a supply and potential on-going service partner for the aforementioned equipment. We are looking for an instrument for incorporation into a diverse research environment principally providing the analysis of flavour volatiles, but also other metabolites, with hardware and software suitable for both quantitative and qualitative chemical analysis. Our samples are mostly plant and food materials but may also include other biological materials such as essential oils and urine. The equipment will represent overall best value from a supplier who can deliver the product described below, with a proven good record of supply, installation, service and support for GC-MS. The overall performance specifications of the new instrument should exceed those of the Waters GCT time of flight instrument that it replaces; in particular in having in having higher full scan sensitivity.
