Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announces the launch of the Thermo Scientific LCQ Fleet™, the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of LCQ ion trap mass spectrometers.

The LCQ Fleet LC-MS system can provide sample analysis for routine analysis in the general analytical lab as well as toxicological screening, natural products characterization and peptide identification applications. This ion trap mass spectrometer, from the inventors of the technology, provides maximum information in minimum time with low levels of sample consumption.

In clinical and forensic toxicology, LC-MS is increasingly being used for the detection and identification of xenobiotics in applications such as General Unknown Screening (GUS) and Systematic Toxicological Analysis (STA).

According to company, designed to perform with high sensitivity and specificity, the LCQ Fleet is capable of producing accurate results at lower detection levels with high throughput, especially when used in combination with the Accela high speed LC system. Intelligent Data Dependent™ acquisition of the LCQ Fleet enables compound screening for maximum structural information.

When analyzing natural products the LCQ Fleet enables identification and characterization of known and unknown natural products without the need for a lengthy pre-purification process.

Furthermore, the Ion Max™ source can deliver robustness for the most demanding analytical applications. The high quality MS data can be searched against the built-in or user-defined libraries embedded in the Mass Frontier™ software for compound identification and data reporting.

The LCQ Fleet also enables routine peptide identification with high correlation scores for confident sequence identification. The scanning capability of the instrument resolves co-eluting peptides often present in complex protein digests.

The LCQ Fleet operates on the flexible, Windows®-based Thermo Scientific Xcalibur™ software platform, which provides automated LC-MS/MS instrument control, data acquisition, processing and results delivery.
