A unique mass analyzer combining the simplicity of MALDI, the power of MSn and accuracy and resolution of TOF for the next generation of structural analysis problems. It can be used to determine protein sequences, proteoglycans, carbohydrates, phosphorylation sites and posttranslational modifications.
The AXIMA-QIT™ is designed for the structural characterization of biomolecules, not just mass measurement.
It is a unique hybrid instrument employing (schematic):
- Matrix assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI)
- Ion Trap delivering True MSn for structural studies
- Reflectron time of flight (TOF) mass analyzer for accurate mass
