Instrument description:

Innovative MALDI-TOF and TOF/TOF technology designed and optimized to be easy-to-use; robust systems for both traditional MALDI applications (reliable and detailed protein/peptide characterization, and polymer analysis) as well as cutting edge work (high resolution MALDI Tissue Imaging, glycan analysis. Autoflex MALDI-TOF/TOF instrument works in linear only mode, high resolution reflectron mode and the latest TOF/TOF technology (LIFT™) which enables the use of various MS/MS techniques (e.g. LID, high energy CID, ISD) for fast and sensitive MS/MS experiments.

Typical applications:

Small molecule analysis, Intact mass determination of proteins (up to 150kDa), Peptide Mass Fingerprint (PMF), In Source Decay (ISD) analysis, Oligonucleotide analysis, Polymer characterization
