Thermo Scientific Easy-nLC 1200 System and Acclaim PepMap NanoLC Columns

Thermo Scientific has introduced two new front-end products for liquid chromatography mass spectrometry: the Easy-nLC 1200 system and Acclaim PepMap NanoLC columns.

The Easy-nLC 1200 was designed for robust and reliable operation at 1200 bar. New maintenance-free ceramic valves decrease system downtime and tool-free nanoViper connections provide fast and reproducible fluidic connections over the complete flow path, Thermo said.

The new Acclaim PepMap nanoLC columns are designed to handle the 1200-bar pressure capability of the Easy-nLC 1200. In particular, the new 75-cm format provides high peak capacity intended to increase sensitivity and resolution. This capability increases the number of protein identifications for improved proteome analysis and LC-MS results, Thermo said.
