Speed: The Fast-MS design combines a lively solid-state laser (200 Hz) with quick sample stage movement, a high-speed transient recorder for rapid data transfer, and a load-lock system for swift sample target introduction.
This impressive array of attributes accelerates time-to-results turnover and improves laboratory productivity.
Sensitivity: The dual-polarity ion source and the patented WideBore ion optics provide top-level sensitivity and mass resolution, enabling low-level detection of proteins, peptides and polymers, among other analytes, in either positive or negative ion mode.
Performance: Designed as a true laboratory workhorse, the MALDI-8030 also facilitates routine maintenance and maximizes instrument up-time with the use of the patented TrueClean function, which performs automated UV laser self-cleaning of the ion optics. The absence of desiccant and use of an oil-free diaphragm pump reduce maintenance costs. In addition, the MALDI laser has an impressive class-leading lifetime of 2 billion shots.
With its outstanding functionality, routine workflows for academic, QC and regulatory laboratories are all executed smoothly on the new MALDI-8030. The integrated barcode scanner enables a seamless tracking process from loading samples to obtaining results. Additionally, the popular MALDI Solutions software offers high-level data security to help meet 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, including password-controlled user access.
