Thermo Fisher Scientific Orbitrap Ascend Tribrid Mass Spectrometer, μPAC HPLC columns
Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched its Orbitrap Ascend Tribrid mass spectrometer targeting the proteomics and biopharma markets.
The instrument features the Tribrid architecture, which includes a quadrupole, linear ion trap, and Orbitrap HRAM along with multiple fragmentation techniques including CID, HCD, UVPD, ETD, and PCTR. The instrument's architecture allows it to route multiple sets of ions simultaneously.
The Orbitrap analyzer offers resolution up to 480,000 (FWHM) at m/z 200 and an acquisition rate of up to 45 Hz. The instrument also offers an optimal high mass range feature that allows for analysis of molecules with m/z of up to 16,000.
The company also announced the release of several new μPAC HPLC columns: its 50 cm Low-Load μPAC Neo HPLC column for single cell and multiplexed sample analysis, and its 110 cm μPAC Neo HPLC column for deep dive proteomics analysis.
