Premium

Bruker this week introduced its Maxis II Q-TOF mass spec, which, the company said, is the new flagship in its TOF mass spec line.

The instrument offers 80,000 resolution at UPLC acquisition speeds as well as a high mass option for intact protein work such as biopharma characterization and electron transfer dissociation capability.


AB Sciex this week introduced its DiscoveryQuant 3.0 software for ADME work both in small molecule and biotherapeutic drug development.

According to the company the software expedites the method development process from existing database information, automates on-column optimization, analyzes and processes multiple samples at the same time, and is supported on all AB Sciex mass spec platforms.
