  • Application Area: Hospital microbiology

"It has a good benchtop platform that is easy to implement in your laboratory. It does not require a lot of space. Fast way to ID bacteria with the database (Maldi Biotyper software). Easy to use for a medical laboratory assistant after some training in sample preparation."

The highest performance benchtop MALDI TOF-MS

The microflex is designed as a compact and affordable bench-top package that is convenient for many life-science laboratories. It operates under our integrated Compass™ software environment for easy operation in multi-instrument laboratories, and with the most comprehensive bioinformatics analysis software suite in the industry.

Answer open questions in expression proteomics, clinical proteomics or functional genomics with the latest member of the FLEX-series. The microflex™ is the most powerful benchtop MALDI-TOF MS system. Due to its unique design each user effortlessly achieves superior mass resolution and mass accuracy in MS and MS/MS mode even from minute amounts of sample.

Highest reliability is our commitment for the FLEX-series. The microflex is the perfect answer for all no-compromise research and analytical requirements in today’s life-science world. Its modular design offers several instrument configurations to fulfill different requirements for peptide/protein identification and characterization, biomarker discovery or oligonucleotide analysis.

Accept no Compromise

The new microflex takes advantage of the long Bruker Daltonics tradition of highest performance mass spectrometers. The unique design of the microScout™ ion source and the gridless reflectron give the microflex outstanding performance in a compact benchtop system. Particular emphasis was put on compatibility with existing Bruker Daltonics sample preparation and handling robotics to enable automated medium-throughput operation. Use of the powerful proprietary AnchorChip™ technology increases the sensitivity of the microflex by an order of magnitude. The unified Compass™ software environment makes the microflex compatible with all other Bruker Daltonics life-science mass spectrometers, lowering training requirements for laboratories with multiple instruments. All necessary functions from automated acquisition to in-depth analysis via highly sophisticated bioinformatics software is available in the Compass software environment.
