Thermo Fisher Scientific Orbitrap Exploris 480, Orbitrap Eclipse Tribrid Instruments and Mass Spectrometry Software

Thermo Fisher Scientific launched a number of mass spectrometry instruments and software this week.

The Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris 480 mass spectrometer enables more rigorous high-throughput protein identification, quantitation, and structural characterization. It has a smaller footprint than previous instrument versions and maintains high resolution, mass accuracy, and spectral quality.

The Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Eclipse Tribrid mass spectrometer has improved sensitivity over previous generations and is better able to characterize and quantify complex biomolecules and biological systems.

Both new instruments can be combined with the Thermo Scientific FAIMS Pro interface, a differential ion mobility device that improves selectivity and increases productivity across a range of proteomics workflows.

The new Thermo Scientific TraceFinder Software 5.0 offers quicker and easier access to information from Thermo Scientific TSQ Quadrupole and Q Exactive Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap mass spectrometry platforms. In addition, the Thermo Scientific Almanac web-based application enables users to remotely access instruments to monitor their run status and data acquisition.
