Shimadzu Launched AXIMA-TOF2™ with MALDI TOF/TOF Capabilities
Product News Dec 20, 2006
Shimadzu has launched the AXIMA-TOF2™, its high performance MALDI TOF/TOF mass spectrometer, ideal for a variety of applications from high energy MS/MS of proteomics and other biological samples, to uncompromised analysis of high mass intact proteins.
This system can analyse and process proteins, polymers, oligonucleotides, SNPs, metabolites, lipids, carbohydrates and small molecules. The AXIMA-TOF2 is designed for a wide range of applications like LC-MALDI based experiments, the recognition of biomarker patterns and functional genomics applications.
Representing the next generation in high energy collision-induced dissociation (CID) MS/MS instrumentation, the AXIMA-TOF2 has sensitivity to ensure that no MS/MS signal is wasted, maintaining high resolution across a wide mass range.
The AXIMA-TOF2 is supported by Shimadzu's Launchpad™ software package, which gives the instrument the flexibility to adapt to any workflow requirement, from single sample manual acquisition to fully automated data-dependent peptide mass fingerprinting and MS/MS for protein identification.
