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. Our technologies help you be highly selective so you can rise above the noise. Cometo IMSC prepared to hear about the ways 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.

Be selective – choose Thermo Fisher Scientific to rise above the noise and join us at Booths #21-22-23-28-29.

Addressing the "Identity Crisis" in Small Molecule Compound Identification

  • Thursday, August 30 - 12:30 – 13:45 Hrs
  • Room # 4 – 1st floor - Padiglione Spadolini

Determining the chemical structure of the majority of compounds "identified" in a typical untargeted analysis remains a stubborn challenge and a persistent logjam, holding up important progress in many fields including metabolomics, metabolism studies, contaminant analysis, and extractables and leachables identification. In this symposia,we will describe a fundamental new approach to untargeted small molecule analysis involving a new Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Tribrid mass spectrometer, partnered with powerful new data acquisition strategies, and an integrated software framework to translate high quality mass spectra into more, confidently-assigned small molecule structures.

Lunch workshops

Three workshops about the latest advances in mass spectrometry.

Protein Structure Analysis with Cross-Linking and Top Down MS

  • Monday, August 22
  • 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
  • Room 205ABCD, Metro Toronto Convention Centre

Charting the Cellular Interactome by Proteome-wide Cross-linking Mass Spectrometry
Albert Heck, Ph. D., Utrecht University

The Bad Thing About “Good” Cholesterol: An Application of Top-Down Proteomics for Clinical Research
Philip Compton, Ph. D., Northwestern University

Chemical cross-linking combined with mass spectrometry (CX-MS) and Top Down mass spectrometry are powerful methods to probe the structure of proteins, complexes and interactions. The high resolution and mass accuracy of Orbitrap technology, in combination with enhanced fragmentation modes (e.g., HCD, ETD, EtHCD) and MSn modalities, allow completely unique and effective methods to probe protein structure. New reagents and software facilitate sample preparation and data interpretation to make these capabilities available to all labs. This seminar will feature the latest work on protein structure elucidation, protein characterization and protein-protein interaction networks.


Complete Characterization of Biologics: mAbs and ADCs

  • Tuesday, August 23
  • 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
  • Room 205ABCD, Metro Toronto Convention Centre

Peptide mapping, subunit top/middle down analysis, and intact native and denatured analysis: The new Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ BioPharma solution can do it all. Use the high resolution and mass accuracy of Orbitrap technology to generate exemplary data and Thermo Scientific™ BioPharma Finder™ software to analyze sequence variance, sites of modification, carbohydrate structure, etc. Verify these findings at the subunit level with top/middle down sequence analysis. Get a full picture of biologic heterogeneity, including glycosylation, linkers, drug conjugates, etc., with denatured and native intact analysis. This seminar will introduce the Q Exactive BioPharma solution and showcase examples of comprehensive characterization of biologic drugs.


Advances in Accurate, High-Throughput Quantitative Proteomics

  • Wednesday, August 24
  • 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
  • Room 205ABCD, Metro Toronto Convention Centre

Isobaric Label-based Proteomics on an Orbitrap Fusion Tribrid Instrument Reveals Elusive Role of the Cellular Prion Protein
Declan Williams, Ph. D., University of Toronto

10-plex TMT-TAILS to Elucidate the Role of the Paracaspase MALT1 in B Cell Aactivation
Theo Klein, Ph. D., University of British Columbia

The ability to perform accurate protein quantification at low levels lets scientists unravel the complexity of protein interactions and track protein abundance changes in a wide variety of samples. When combined with multiplexing capabilities, quantitative proteomics provides a deep and comprehensive understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying biological processes and disease states. Thermo Scientific™ TMT™ isobaric mass tag labeling combined with Orbitrap high resolution accurate mass (HRAM) mass spectrometry (MS) enable greater multiplexing capacity, resulting in increased depth of quantitative proteomic analysis across larger numbers of samples. The improved sensitivity and accuracy achieved with Orbitrap HRAM MS and synchronous precursor selection (SPS)-based MS3 technology on the Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap Tribrid™ MS systems provide a unique, unmatched capability to accurately measure the most subtle changes in low-abundance proteins. In this seminar, we will discuss multiplexed quantitative proteomics and present real-world applications from leading research laboratories.
