Bruker Opens Mass Spec Demo Facility

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Bruker said today that its Bruker Daltonics business has opened a demonstration facility in Massachusetts for its ultra-high resolution time-of-flight maXis mass spectrometer.

The firm also said that it had placed the maXis in several "top-tier" US life science research laboratories.

Bruker launched the maXis last year and plans to exhibit the system at Pittcon 2009 next week in Chicago. The firm claims that it is the "only high-performance mass spectrometer available today that simultaneously fulfills the two previously incompatible requirements in modern mass spectrometry or ulta-high mass resolution and fast UHPLC separations."
