New single quadrupole mass spectrometer and specialized columns designed to deliver reproducible and robust separations, increase analytical accuracy.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced new technologies that are designed to allow analytical chemists to obtain high-resolution separations with outstanding sensitivity and reproducibility. The technologies are being featured in Prague this week during HPLC 2017—The 46th International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques.
“Our customers want to gain a deeper understanding of their samples,” said Mitch Kennedy, vice president and general manager, life sciences business, chromatography and mass spectrometry, Thermo Fisher. “This week at HPLC, we will demonstrate to customers our commitment to innovation and to equipping them with the necessary tools to make their journey from sample to knowledge easier so they can solve their most complex analytical challenges.”
The new Thermo Scientific ISQ EC Single Quadrupole mass spectrometer seamlessly integrates with an existing ion chromatography (IC) or high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system and provides excellent small molecule sensitivity and mass confirmation for users. The industry-leading Chromeleon Chromatography Data Software (CDS) platform has embedded ISQ EC MS instrument control, which enables users to minimize time spent on new mass spectrometry (MS) user training. The instrument also provides exceptional robustness, enabling users to analyze a range of simple and complex sample matrices.
Also launching at the show is the new range of Thermo Scientific MAbPac RP 1mm columns, which are designed to provide the resolution and ruggedness required for high-performance, reversed-phase chromatography characterization of monoclonal antibodies, fragments, variants, antibody drug conjugates and proteins.
With a 1mm inner diameter, the new columns provide sensitive analyses of very small sample volumes at low flow rates for direct injection into the LC-MS, thus streamlining workflows and achieving high sensitivity. Featuring a polymeric resin with an optimized pore size and thermal and pH stability, the new columns allow consistent and efficient separations with low carry-over.
In addition to the new products on display, Thermo Fisher is hosting scientific presentations with industry and company experts to highlight the latest developments in chromatography and mass spectrometry.
