The new Thermo Scientific technologies made their debut at the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics in Vancouver last month.
The analytical power of the company’s LTQ Orbitrap hybrid platform is now enhanced by a new suite of software designed to further advance the performance of its recently introduced Elite and Q Exactive mass spectrometers.
Next-generation SIEVE 2.0 software increases throughput during complex metabolite and protein biomarker discovery experiments, while new ExactFinder 2.0 software dramatically improves analysis time in the rapidly changing field of food safety testing.
Thermo Fisher also introduced Protein Deconvolution software to fully leverage the high-resolution/accurate mass (HR/AM) data produced by the Q Exactive system during complex protein analysis.
For laboratory customers who need to perform quantitative and qualitative analysis, but currently have limited capital budgets, Thermo Fisher launched the new Exactive Plus liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) system.
The Exactive Plus system is designed specifically to address the need for high-throughput screening of compounds in a range of applications, including drug metabolism/pharmacokinetics (DMPK), metabolomics, forensic toxicology, environmental analysis and food safety testing.
The new Exactive Plus LC/MS can be readily upgraded to match the higher performance of the premier Q Exactive mass spectrometer.
