Product Description


  • Very high resolving power—up to 240,000 FWHM—facilitates analysis of low-abundance components in complex samples and resolves isobaric species and isotope fine structures with confidence
  • Ion optics with novel neutral-blocking technology and an advanced detection system increase system robustness and quantification capabilities
  • Advanced signal processing combined with fast scanning ensures UHPLC compatibility
  • Multiple fragmentation techniques—CID, HCD and optionally ETD—provide versatility and complementary data
  • Innovative pre-amplifier electronics improve sensitivity
  • Parallel MS and MSn capability speeds analyses

Comprehensive Proteomics Analyses

  • Very high resolution and complementary fragmentation modes facilitate top-down protein identification and characterization
  • ETD option preserves labile side chains while fragmenting the peptide backbone for improved analysis of P™s
  • Fast scanning combined with high resolution and high spectral quality yields more protein identifications in a single analysis
  • Very high resolution and selectivity in both full-scan MS and MSn modes enhance relative quantification results from stable isotope labeling or isobaric mass tagging experiments

Productive Metabolism and Metabolomics Research

  • Very high resolution distinguishes components in complex matrices
  • Sensitivity ensures detection of more metabolites
  • High-quality MSn spectral trees provide extensive structural information for metabolite identification and the location of modification sites
  • Improved robustness lowers maintenance, enabling 24/7 operation when running complex biological matrices

Application-Specific Software

  • Thermo Scientific™ Mass Frontier™, MetWorks™, ProSightPC, ProteinCenter™, Proteome Discoverer™ and SIEVE™ software as well as PEAKS™ software are all available to increase productivity for specific tasks or applications.
