Thermo Easy n-LC 1000 coupled to the Thermo LTQ XL Mass Spectrometer
Sensitivity and unmatched MS spectral quality Pulsed Q dissociation (PQD) for generating more fragments and extending the low mass range. Electron transfer dissociation (ETD) option provides sequence information not available from conventional methods High-resolution isolation (HRI) enables isolation of isobaric mass peaks for cleaner MS/MS spectra. Ultra-fast polarity switching for high sensitivity analysis of unknowns Automated data-dependent neutral loss for PTM and biotransformation analyses.
The LTQ XL supplies outstanding sensitivity and abundant structural information for: 1) Protein identification 2) Biomarker studies and 3) PTM identification

Thermo Easy n-LC 1200 coupled to the Thermo Q-Exactive Plus Mass Spectrometer
Identify, quantify and confirm more compounds rapidly and with confidence using the Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer. This benchtop LC-MS/MS system combines quadruple precursor ion selection with high-resolution, accurate-mass (HRAM) Orbitrap detection to deliver exceptional performance and versatility. The Q Exactive Mass Spectrometer is equally useful for untargeted or targeted screening and a broad range of qualitative and quantitative applications in drug discovery, proteomics, environmental and food safety, clinical research and forensic toxicology.
High-Confidence Results, Quickly
HRAM and full-scan capabilities capture all sample data, all the time, enabling retrospective data analysis without need to re-run samples. Resolving power up to 140,000 FWHM eliminates isobaric interferences, increasing confidence in results when analyzing samples in complex matrices. Better than 1ppm mass accuracy in full-scan and all-ion fragmentation (AIF) modes ensures confident compound identification. Fast scanning at 12hz and spectral multiplexing suited to UHPLC applications. Rapid polarity switching maximizes information obtained AIF and multiple dissociation techniques—in-source CID and HCD—aid in compound identification. Extended mass range to 6,000m/z enhances detection of singly charged small molecules and biomolecules. More than four orders of magnitude intrascan dynamic range, along with femtogram-level sensitivity, allow detection of trace-level and high-abundance compounds in the same scan.
