New software and instrumentation introduced at ASMS enhance performance while increasing laboratory productivity.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has launched innovative software and instrumentation that extend the capabilities of its flagship mass spectrometry portfolio.

The new Thermo Scientific technologies made their debut at the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, being held in Vancouver from May 20 - 24.

The analytical power of the company’s highly successful LTQ Orbitrap® hybrid platform is now enhanced by a new suite of software designed to further advance the performance of its recently introduced Elite™ and Q Exactive™ mass spectrometers.

Next-generation SIEVE™ 2.0 software increases throughput during complex metabolite and protein biomarker discovery experiments, while new ExactFinder™ 2.0 software dramatically improves analysis time in the rapidly changing field of food safety testing.

Thermo Fisher also introduced Protein Deconvolution software to fully leverage the high-resolution/accurate mass (HR/AM) data produced by the Q Exactive system during complex protein analysis. These three new offerings are among eight software packages being introduced at ASMS.

For laboratory customers who need to perform quantitative and qualitative analysis, but currently have limited capital budgets, Thermo Fisher launched the new Thermo Scientific Exactive Plus liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) system.

The Exactive Plus system is designed specifically to address the need for high-throughput screening of compounds in a range of applications, including drug metabolism/pharmacokinetics (DMPK), metabolomics, forensic toxicology, environmental analysis and food safety testing.

The new Exactive Plus LC/MS can be readily upgraded to match the higher performance of the premier Q Exactive mass spectrometer.

“Our leading mass spectrometry technologies are consistently enabling our customers’ important discoveries in medical research and meeting their growing needs for environmental and consumer safety testing,” said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher.

Casper continued, “Like our customers, we never stop innovating, and these new software launches take our incredibly successful Orbitrap platform to the next level, particularly our Elite and Q Exactive systems. In today’s economic environment, many laboratories are under funding pressure, yet need to deliver results. Our new Exactive Plus gives these customers another option that solves their analytical challenges today, and it can be upgraded to full Q Exactive performance in the future.”

Thermo Fisher’s commitment to advancing triple quadrupole technology is evident in its new TSQ 8000 high-performance gas chromatography-mass spectrometry system (GC-MS/MS), also launched at ASMS.

The TSQ 8000 system allows users to view targeted compounds at lower concentrations, making even more complex analyses possible.

Compatible with the company’s leading TraceFinder™ 2.1 software, the TSQ 8000 GC-MS/MS is designed for routine applications, including the identification of food and environmental contaminants.
