Product News: New Innovations to Enhance your Mass Spec's Capability

13 Mar 2012

Protea has announced new innovations to enhance your mass spec's capability at Pittcon 2012. The Protea LAESI DP-1000 is a high-throughput direct ionization system that profiles the distribution of biomolecules as they exist and where they exist in your sample.

Features include:

Increased Speed of Analysis
LAESI allows you to introduce your sample directly into the mass spec without any front-end separation or preparation. You can automate your process and seamlessly integrate the data from your mass spectrometer.

2D & 3D Imaging
Spatial distribution profiling of biomolecules in tissues or living cells for cell metabolism studies, drug/ target interaction investigations, cancer research. Ionization is at ambient pressure, with no matrix addition required.

Native Sample Ionization
Introduce any biological sample containing water to the mass spectrometer under ambient conditions with virtually no sample preparation. The LAESI DP-1000 features a "true" electrospray ionization allowing multiple-charged ions spectra with no presence of matrix for easier mass interpretation.

Application Diversity and Range
From living cells to biofluids, in situ bio-reaction monitoring to drug toxicity analysis, your sample possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Platform Versatility and Integration
Easily access the power and performance of the LAESI DP-1000 system by integrating with many of today's leading high-resolution mass spectrometers and laboratory workflows.

Also introduced at Pittcon were the C8 Monolith LithTips a solution for intact protein and peptide separations.
