Thermo Scientific Q Exactive UHMR Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer; Orbitrap ID-X Tribrid Mass Spectrometer; ChromaCare Solutions and Solvents

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive UHMR Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer, which is the platform to combine high-resolution, high-sensitivity MS2 and pseudo-MS3 capabilities into one workflow. It is an ultra-high mass range system for both native mass spectrometry and top-down analysis.

In addition, the company launched the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap ID-X Tribrid Mass Spectrometer, which combines elements of its quadrupole, Orbitrap, and linear ion trip mass analyzer technologies and enables users to acquire data with less expertise in experimental setup and interpretation. It is designed to characterize and identify small molecules across different applications.

Further, Thermo Fisher has launched the ChromaCare line of flush solutions and ultra-high performance LC-MS solvents, which help reduce background noise and prevent protein precipitation.
