SCION SQ™ GC-MS single quadrupole

Gas Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry Systems

SCION SQ™ GC-MS single quadrupole and SCION TQ™ GC-MS triple quadrupole systems provide analysts with a GC-MS platform especially designed for the Gas Chromatographer.

The SCION GC-MS Series sets a new industry standard for GC-MS. The SCION series is simple to use and incredibly sensitive and delivers robust and reliable performance. All this comes complete in a space-saving package that makes upgrading to new levels of performance a simple and cost-effective process.

SCION SQ and SCION TQ set new standards of performance in:

  • Food Analysis and Testing
  • Environmental Analysis
  • Forensics/Toxicology
  • Sports Medicine/Doping Control
  • Petroleum, Fuels, and Hydrocarbon Analysis

Both the SCION SQ and the SCION TQ are available with the new, compact 436 Gas Chromatograph. For those requiring more GC flexibility, the 456 Laboratory GC is also available. The 436 and 456 are designed to provide complete sample integrity with fast oven performance, flexible inlet/detector options, and a wide variety of automation/sample handling capabilities.


The Gas Chromatographer's Detector

SCION’s long traditions of innovation and product reliability have combined to create a new industry standard for gas chromatography single quadrupole mass detection – the SCION SQ. The SCION SQ detector is designed to meet many important user specified requirements – reliable performance, ease-of-use, and simple maintenance – all in a small instrument footprint that saves valuable bench space.


Easy to Use and Maintain - Simple tuning due to "lens-free" ion-path design

Simple Calibration - New EDR detector minimizes effort

Robust - A heated inert ion source that requires less frequent cleaning

Sensitive - Active-Focusing q0 uses He molecules to focus ions

Upgrade Ready - Maximum vacuum 320/400 L/sec means longer performance plus easy upgrade to Chemical Ionization; just add a CI source
