Application Note: Walk-Up Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer System
14 November 2012

Presented here is a case study of a walk-up liquid chromatography - ion trap mass spectrometry system. The system allows for walk-up access to a Bruker HCTultra LC-MS system. The implementation of client-server based Compass OpenAccess software on this system allows the user to choose from several pre-programmed LC-MS workflows with no need for tedious method development or system optimization. Current workflows span from small molecule quality control to protein identification. User training is minimal, as is system down time.
