QIC-2GB* 42 tracks
QIC-1000 30 tracks
QIC-525 26 tracks
QIC-150 18 tracks
QIC-120 15 tracks
QIC-24 9 tracks

any of the above compatible drives should be able to read a QIC24 format tape

Archive, Wangtec, Tandberg all made drives of this format, Tecmar also
marketed one, but I think it was a Wangtec mechanism.
