MALDI-TOF/TOF Mass Spectrometer Speeds Acquisition

Bruker Daltonics announces its next-generation MALDI-TOF/TOF mass spectrometer. The new Ultraflex III is used in applications like LC-MALDI and MALDI molecular imaging.

Ultraflex III  smartbeam laser with computer-controlled settings of the laser focus size from 10 um to 80 um makes it a good choice for MALDI molecular imaging. Absorbing tissue areas can be scanned with a very small laser focus and adjustable repetition rates from 1 Hz to 200 Hz

It increases acquisition speed by a factor of three for LC-MALDI workflows, in comparison to the previous ultraflex II system. The all-purpose WARP-LC(TM) workflow software supports intelligent, result-dependent LC-MALDI acquisition, protein sequence validation, PTM screening and quantitative proteomics.
