  • Application Area:Biopharmaceuticals

"It is one of the best iontrap instrument I have ever used. It delivers the best MS and MS/MS result for protein identification and characterization. The sensitivity and mass accuracy is very good. it makes impurity characterization at the ease, very rugged instrument too. It is best suitable for biopharmaceutical applications."
