"This instrument is a real workhorse in our laboratory. It easy to work with, provides lots of opportunities and it is also comparably easy to introduce newcomers into the fascinating world of mass spectrometry. In my laboratory we use this instrument to cover various applications, ranging from glycomics to proteomics and glycoproteomics research, and the price to benefit ratio is unbeatable. Apart from that, support is excellent."
The new amaZon Speed ETD incorporates key inventions for unprecedented proteomics capabilities. The high dynamic range and complexity of proteomics samples due to post translational modifications require maximum speed and sensitivity to capture as many peptides as possible. The amaZon speed ion ETD trap sets new standards in protein identification due to its enhanced MS/MS speed, new SWIFT isolation and SMART fragmentation. This results in routine identification of more than 2500 unambiguously identified proteins in a single LC-MS/MS run from 5 µg of a HeLa lysate. The dual ion funnel transfer line is delivering absolute benchmark sensitivity.
