Achieve high quality full-scan and MS/MS analysis of samples quickly, easily and reliably using the Thermo Scientific LCQ Fleet Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer. With its excellent full-scan sensitivity and rugged operation, this cost-effective system delivers detailed data on complex samples in high-throughput applications such as natural product and purity analysis, food safety, drug metabolism, and general analytical chemistry. Easy-to-use, the LCQ Fleet ion trap mass spectrometer integrates seamlessly with HPLC systems under a single point of control. Automated features enable all users, regardless of expertise level, to analyze samples.

A range of scan functions, including full scan, MS/MS, MSn, ZoomScan, Ultra ZoomScan and TurboScan come standard with the LTQ XL Linear Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer. Additionally, this system offers a high capacity linear trap with two detectors, electrospray ionization (ESI), atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI), and multiple molecular dissociation techniques including pulsed Q collision induced dissociation (PQD), electron transfer dissociation (ETD) and collision-induced dissociation (CID). The benefits of these features include low mass cut-off elimination plus unmatched coverage of predicted and unpredicted analytes.

Overcome experimental challenges in proteomics, metabolomics and lipidomics with the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Elite Hybrid Ion Trap-Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer. This system combines a high-field Thermo Scientific Orbitrap mass analyzer and Thermo Scientific Velos Pro ion trap technology to deliver 240,000 FWHM resolution and complementary fragmentation information. Combined with its fast scanning and advanced signal processing abilities, the Orbitrap Elite’s advantages yield sensitive data of high spectral quality.

The flagship Velos Pro Dual-Pressure Linear Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer offers the fastest and most sensitive detection of low-abundance compounds and analytes in mixed samples. This system offers high collision dissociation (HCD) combined with CID, PQD and ETD, for addressing difficult structural elucidation challenges. Generation II ion optics improve robustness and reduce instrument downtime.
