Innovations Shaping the Future of LC-MS

Jul 13 2021

Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced new innovations for scientists, researchers and laboratory professionals in academia, pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and clinical research on their journeys of discovery.

The new Thermo Scientific Orbitrap IQ-X Tribrid mass spectrometer is designed specifically for small-molecule structural elucidation of metabolites and unknown compounds. With this new, intelligent mass spectrometer (MS), small molecule researchers in academia, pharmaceutical, and biopharmaceutical industries can now reveal complex chemical structures with confidence, ease and experimental versatility.

The wide range of applications include metabolomics and lipidomics research, leachable/extractable impurities identification and forensic toxicology. This MS system provides a fit-for-purpose, new AcquireX workflow enabled by the trusted Thermo Scientific Tribrid architecture to acquire high-quality data. Performance is enhanced by a new Met-IQ workflow that leverages real-time library search with on-the-fly intelligent MS2 spectral matching for decision-based triggering of MSn scan events, providing higher confidence for chemical annotation.

The Thermo Scientific FAIMS Pro Duo interface builds upon the foundation of the Thermo Scientific FAIMS Pro interface to continue to support biological mass spectrometry (MS) and extend differential ion mobility to a broader range of applications including proteomics, plasma profiling, and targeted small-molecule quantitation.

With new interface, scientists in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and clinical research laboratories can benefit from a differential ion mobility interface that increases productivity and data quality for qualitative and quantitative workflows.

The FAIMS Pro Duo interface easily integrates with Thermo Fisher's next-generation mass spectrometers, including the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Tribrid mass spectrometers, Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris mass spectrometers, Thermo Scientific TSQ Altis triple quadrupole mass spectrometer and Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantis triple quadrupole mass spectrometer.
