Cannabis Testing: Waters Acquity TQD LC/MS/MS for Residual Solvents & Terpenoid Analysis

Manufacturer: Waters Model: Acquity Condition: Used Warranty: 30 day (90 day with onsite installation.) Test Performed: Listing ID# 32363

Waters Acquity TQD LCMSMS System

The Waters ACQUITY TQD LCMSMS features the highest levels of tandem quadrupole MS selectivity, robustness, speed, and accuracy for quantitative analysis. The ACQUITY TQD provides a very accurate method for trace-level analysis of mycotoxins, residual solvents, and pesticide residues specifically when analyzing terpenes for cannabis products.


  • Dual Orthogonal API source maximizes longevity, protects it from dirty samples and allows easy cleaning without breaking vacuum
  • Automated system checks and simplified user interface for ease-of-use
  • Optimized MS/MS detection for demanding quantitative applications
  • Rapid data acquisition rates for the best in accuracy and reproducibility of chromatographic peak area measurement
  • ZSpray atmospheric pressure ionization interface
  • Industry-leading multimode capability in a single run
  • Smallest MS/MS footprint
  • Operates at the highest data acquisition rates (utilizing T-Wave collision cell, multi-mode ionization, and rapid polarity switching technologies)

Waters ACQUITY TQ Detector

The Waters® ACQUITY® TQ Detector is an advanced bench top tandem quadrupole mass detector designed for ultra high performance LC/MS/MS applications. With a wide range of ionization options including Atmospheric Pressure Photo Ionization (APPI) and the Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP), the TQ Detector is ideally suited for a wide range of qualitative and quantitative applications. The system includes IntelliStart™ Technology, for automated system optimization and status monitoring, ensuring that the highest quality data is routinely available to users of all levels.
