Bruker RapifleX MALDI-TOF/TOF

Bruker has launched the RapifleX MALDI-TOF/TOF mass spectrometer. With its redesigned, next-generation TOF/TOF ion optics, the RapifleX system now offers significantly higher speed, mass resolution, and mass accuracy, Bruker said. The system integrates a novel, 10-kHz "smartbeam" 3D scanning laser design for improved spatial resolution, image contrast ,and quality; and a new ion source for superior robustness and throughput in pathology research, the company noted. The system is also well suited for detailed protein characterization in life science research and biopharmaceutical laboratories, Bruker said.
