Thermo Fisher has launched its latest liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) system.
The Exactive Plus system is powered by Thermo Scientific Orbitrap technology, the standard in full-scan, high-resolution accurate-mass (HR/AM) measurement.
The Exactive Plus system extends the capabilities of the Exactive system with advanced signal processing, ion optics and transmission technologies.
It features full field upgradeability to the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive high-performance quadrupole-Orbitrap LC-MS/MS system.
Like its predecessor, the Exactive Plus system produces full-scan HR/AM data, minimising tedious MS method development and allowing retrospective data analysis.
The system has a range of applications, including food safety, environmental, forensic toxicology, drug metabolism/pharmacokinetics (DMPK) research and intact antibody analyses.
Advanced signal processing increases system scan speed by a factor of two, providing ultra-high mass resolution to resolve components in complex sample matrices.
With fast scanning, the Exactive Plus system ensures exact mass measurement for applications involving UHPLC.
Fast scanning also enables fast polarity switching without sacrificing mass accuracy. Brighter ion source optics and improved C-Trap—to—HCD cell transmission enhance sensitivity and improve low-mass ion transmission.
