Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces Linear Ion Trap Trade-Up Program for Single Quadrupole and Ion Trap LC-MS Users
News Oct 07, 2009
For a limited time only, the program will make the most advanced Thermo Scientific instruments accessible to single quadrupole and ion trap users.
By trading-in their old single quadrupole or ion trap mass spectrometers,
scientists can upgrade the analytical power of their laboratory with the
Thermo Scientific LTQ XL or the LTQ Velos the world's fastest and most
sensitive LC-MS ion trap, or receive up to 30 percent off the price of a new
Thermo Scientific linear ion trap. An additional benefit is the opportunity
to further extend performance with an upgrade path to Thermo Scientific
Orbitrap technology, offering ultra-high resolution, mass accuracy and
increased dynamic range.

Stable Beta-Amyloid Dimers Identified in Alzheimer’s BrainsNews
A recent study exploited state-of-the-art mass spectrometry to provide the first direct evidence of beta-amyloid dimers in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and points to the potential of these molecules as biomarkers. Beta-amyloid dimers may be the smallest pathological species that trigger Alzheimer’s disease.
Reversing an Unstoppable Cancer Cascade with ProteomicsNews
Mutations in genes that produce RAS proteins turn a normally benign process, essential for cellular growth, into a cancer stimulant that is currently undruggable. Now, cutting-edge protein analysis may help treat cancers caused by these mutations.READ MORE
A Fatal AttractionNews
Malaria causes the bodies of its human hosts to emit specific odours from the skin that make the hosts even more attractive to mosquitoes, perpetuating transmission. Researchers have now identified the odours as organic hydrocarbons heptanal, octanal and nonanal, whose discovery could bring relief to a disease that claimed nearly half a million lives in 2016.READ MORE
