Thermo Fisher Scientific ISQ EC Single Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer, MabPac RP 1mm Columns

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched a new mass spectrometer and new chromatography columns. The ISQ EC Single Quadrupole mass spectrometer integrates with existing ion chromatography and HPLC systems, and the Chromeleon Chromatography Data Software has instrument control for the new mass spec embedded. The MabPac RP 1mm columns are designed for analyzing monoclonal antibodies, fragments, variants, antibody drug conjugates, and proteins using high-performance reversed-phase chromatography. They can operate with small sample volumes at low flow rates for direct injection into a mass spectrometer.
