Quadrupole Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: The system generates superior quality mass spectrometry (MS) and tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) data from both atmospheric pressure ionization (API) and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) techniques.DESCRIPTION: The QSTAR [HTML_REMOVED]XL Hybrid LC/MS/MS System is a high-performance, hybrid quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer designed for protein identification and characterization and drug metabolism studies. The unique flexibility to switch between the standard API NanoSpray [HTML_REMOVED] source and the new oMALDI [HTML_REMOVED]2 ion source makes the QSTAR [HTML_REMOVED]XL System the preferred choice for proteomics. Specific scan modes such as precursor ion scanning, enabled by the patented LINAC [HTML_REMOVED]Pulsar collision cell technology, identify the type and location of post-translational modifications or drug metabolites with outstanding specificity and sensitivity.FEATURES:Enhanced ion optics for highest sensitivity and reliability.Excellent mass accuracy and stability yield unequivocal molecular weight and high-quality structural information.Unique, patented LINAC [HTML_REMOVED]Pulsar collision cell technology enables the most sensitive product ion and precursor ion scan capabilities for metabolite, protein and peptide, and post-translational modification determination.Maximum flexibility with a comprehensive selection of interchangeable, application-specific ion sources; new oMALDI [HTML_REMOVED]2 source for increased sensitivity.Sensitive and rugged IonSpray [HTML_REMOVED], TurboIonSpray[HTML_REMOVED], and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI) ion sources for routine low-level drug metabolism identification and characterization.New NanoSpray [HTML_REMOVED]ion source for capillary liquid chromatography (LC) provides increased sensitivity and throughput for protein and peptide identification and characterization.New PhotoSpray [HTML_REMOVED]source for analysis of low-molecular- weight, highly polar compounds via atmospheric pressure photoionization.Extended MS and MS/MS mass range (6,000 and 40,000 m/z) expands scope of protein and peptide
