Through innovative instrument design, the space-saving MALDI-8020 achieves performance specifications similar to those of larger, more expensive MALDI-TOF models but in a significantly smaller footprint. The MALDI-8020 improves laboratory efficiency and accelerates analysis through a newly designed load-lock system for rapid sample target introduction and a solid-state laser for fast data acquisition speeds. Using linear time of flight, this compact MALDI-TOF system enables low-level detection of proteins, peptides and polymers, among other analytes. In addition, it easily accommodates standard laboratory workflows such as peptide mass finger printing for simple protein ID confirmation, in-source decay (ISD) and polymer distribution analysis.

Key features include:

• Compact benchtop design
• Rapid loading and acquisition
• Automated source cleaning
• Integrated barcode scanner

The MALDI-8020, operated by MALDI Solutions software, is ideally suited for pharmaceutical QC labs as well as academic and industrial labs with limited laboratory space. MALDI Solutions offers intuitive, yet secure, operation, including security, audit trails and user management, to help meet 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. Additionally, the simple and intuitive user interface makes this an ideal teaching tool.
