What is the signal saturation level for the QDa? - WKB12111

Article number: 12111

ENVIRONMENT

  • ACQUITY QDa Mass Detector
  • MassLynx
  • Empower

ANSWER

The QDa along with our other mass spectrometers uses a PMT as part of the detector assembly. As a general guideline, the saturation for a single peak (SIR or MRM) is approximately 1.34e8. For a scan (TIC) the value may be higher because it is a sum of the intensities of all the peaks.
