Be selective – rise above the noise

Life can be noisy. So can science. You need to be selective and focus on sources of information that are accurate and enlightening so that you can make good decisions to advance your research and organizational goals.

Attend our annual Mass Spec Users’ Meetings to hear how we have extended the selectivity of our instruments and software to help you:

  • Reduce ambiguity
  • Improve your quantitative accuracy and precision
  • More confidently profile and classify your complex samples
  • Correctly identify more metabolites, impurities, or contaminants

Don’t miss this day of lively, informative presentations by experts from diverse fields, hear about exciting new products that can help you achieve greater productivity, and network with your peers.

Booth 401

HUPO 2018

Harness the power of proteomics to gain in-depth biological insights, facilitate biomarker discovery, and advance scientific research. By collaborating with the scientific community, Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed pioneering solutions that can help you identify and quantify proteins faster and more accurately, so you can go beyond the limit of what was ever thought possible.

Visit us in booth 401 to learn about the latest mass spectrometry instruments and software for proteomics, including these new products:

  • FAIMS Pro interface
    • Enhances selectivity and enables greater proteome profiling while reducing time consuming sample preparation steps, increasing productivity from every user.
  • Q Exactive UHMR Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer
    • Provides unprecedented structural detail for deeper understanding of protein function, disease mechanisms, potential drug targets, and biotherapeutic compounds.

Attend our VIP event on Monday evening and technical lunch seminars at the conference throughout the week from 12:20 - 1:45 p.m.. Registration is requested.
