Realizing that generating spectra by itself was not enough, the ProteomeX LTQ system was created with the following components: two quaternary pumps, sophisticated new Finnigan Micro AS proteomics auto sampler, 10-port low volume switching valve, Finnigan LTQ ion trap mass spectrometer and potent acquisition and processing software.
By seamlessly aligning these components, weve created an incredibly powerful proteomics tool with sensitivities and processing features that provide extremely high protein ID coverage at an extraordinarily high confidence. While the system does generate massive amounts of data, the software interrogates and interprets the spectra to turn it into information.
With the integrated HPLC, auto sampler, 10-port switching valve and ion trap mass spectrometer comes tremendous versatility. The system comes configured with four application specific kits and hardware/software configurations:
Unique, proprietary features of the system include:
One of the most powerful features of the system are the Data Dependent experiments. This allows a user to program the instrument to automatically examine spectra, make a decision about the results and subsequently perform MS/MS and/or MSn experiments on any number of the observed ions. Once the data is acquired, powerful protein ID software based on SEQUEST® matches the spectra against a protein database and returns an identification with confidence scoring. With the speed and sensitivity of the ProteomeX LTQ system, a greater number of peptides are detected and subsequently fragmented. The greater protein coverage and higher ID scores dramatically increase the confidence in the results.
The system comes standard with:
With the ProteomeX LTQ, the system works for you, generating high protein coverage with high confidence in the results. Save your time for taking this information and turning it into knowledge.
