Expanding Mass Spectrometer Offering

Jun 09 2008

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has expanded its line of AXIMA MALDI TOF mass spectrometers (MS) with three new systems to meet the needs of researchers with varying applications and budgets.
The AXIMA PerformanceTM mass spectrometer provides the pinnacle of performance for high-energy MS/MS interrogation of proteomics, biological and organic samples.
These include polymers, oligonucleotides, SNPs, metabolites and carbohydrates.
It also demonstrates outstanding performance in analyses of high-mass intact proteins. In reflectron mode it can generate high-resolution MS data for peptide mass fingerprinting and complex mixture analysis. Full automation, advanced calibration algorithms, data-dependent workflows and application-centric software help users achieve maximum results with minimal user input. Software packages include proteomics, LC-MALDI/relative quantitation, biomarker discovery and tissue imaging.
Shimadzu designed the AXIMA ConfidenceTM and AssuranceTM instruments with general analytical and lifescience laboratories in mind.
Both systems are affordable, robust options for routine sample analysis performed manually or automatically.
Positive- and negative-ion modes are standard, so users have full flexibility. Shimadzu also incorporated a patented beam blanker to optionally remove unwanted low-mass ions and prevent detector saturation.
The Confidence MALDI MS offers reliable mass information and MS/MS-derived structural detail. A linear mode enables analysis of high molecular weight samples. The reflectron mode, incorporating the patented curved-field reflectron, provides high resolution and mass accuracy. Confidence software packages are available specifically for proteomics experiments, LC-MALDI, polymer analysis, biomarker
discovery, tissue imaging and oligonucleotide/primer analysis.
The Assurance MALDI MS is a linear MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer for reliable mass information. It is suited for high-throughput QA/QC analysis of oligonucleotides/primers, synthetic peptides/proteins, polymers, and other small molecules. The system is ideal for protein profiling, tissue imaging, biomarker discovery, and single nucleotide
