The Waters ® Xevo™ TQ-GC Mass Spectrometer is a tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer with an electron impact (EI) ionization source. When paired with highly-inert Rxi columns and Topaz liners from Restek, the Xevo TQ-GC Mass Spectrometer allows laboratories to meet and exceed low part-per-billion limits of detection when quantifying pesticide residues and other contaminants in food using GC-MS/MS methods set forth by worldwide regulatory agencies/authorities.
