Product News: Thermo Fisher Scientific Extends Linear Ion Trap and Triple Stage Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer Trade-In Program

14 Jun 2010


Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announces the extension of its LC-MS ion trap and triple stage quadrupole trade-in programs to include the trade-in of instruments from any vendor. Scientists are invited to participate in the Traps and Triples Trade-In Program by trading in ion trap or triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometers – from any vendor – and upgrading to Thermo Scientific linear ion trap or triple stage quadrupole technology.

Available through September 2010, new and existing customers are eligible to trade in any model of ion trap or triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometer for a discounted price on a new Thermo Scientific linear ion trap or triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometer. Thermo Fisher is offering its complete line of ion trap and triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometers through the promotional period. Both product lines offer models suitable for a range of uses, from routine analyses to research applications.

Building on a strong tradition of innovation, the Thermo Scientific LTQ Series mass spectrometers provide enhanced performance for complex sample analyses. The Thermo Scientific LTQ XL is equipped with powerful tools to generate extensive structural information while providing exceptional sensitivity and flexibility. The Thermo Scientific LCQ Fleet provides rich information for routine analysis of complex samples with high throughput and provides excellent full-scan sensitivity, ruggedness and reliability.

Thermo Scientific TSQ Series mass spectrometers are among the most advanced and powerful triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometers available. The Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantum Ultra is ideal for quantitative applications and provides ultimate productivity and faster method development at high specificity. The Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantum Access MAX is suitable for a variety of applications and provides remarkable specificity at an affordable price for exceptional price to performance.

Scientists interested in obtaining the latest breakthrough technology in mass spectrometry can trade in their old ion trap or triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometers for a new Thermo Scientific LTQ Velos or Thermo Scientific TSQ Vantage. Scientists can upgrade the analytical power of their laboratory with the world’s fastest and most sensitive LC-MS ion trap, the LTQ Velos™, or the advanced triple stage quadrupole TSQ Vantage™. Both of these instruments utilize advanced S-Lens ion optics, which improve instrument sensitivity and data acquisition rates by collecting and focusing more of the ions as they travel from the ion source to the mass analyzer.

The extension of the trade-in program provides new and existing customers with access to the latest technological advancements in mass spectrometry, including greater sensitivity and enhanced robustness that lead to improved results and increased productivity. Long-term success is ensured with continued instrument support throughout the life of the instrument.
