  • Application Area:Drug Discovery and Metabolite ID

"This is an excellent product for the drug discovery world. It is easy to use, and has very fast scanning, it has excellent data recording and the software was easy to use. I have used this instrument for biomarker research and ID and protein ID as well as sequencing and have had great results. The sensitivity is exquisite and it is very reliable. The software data interpretation is fantastic. It is easy to tune and keep calibrated, plus it is easy to clean. The only drawback is the service from Thermo is sometimes slow and not very efficient you will have to learn quickly to take care of a lot of things yourself. I highly recommend this instrument for drug discovery and protein ID or any molecule ID."
