Very good data quality and easy to use/setup.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyze Metabolites in invitro/in vivo samples

"MetID for small molecules as well as large molecules (incl. intact antibody). Very reliable results, good spectra quality, good mass accuracy, good sensitivity. System stability with Excalibur not very stable, especially when autosampler stops or LC not ready. Excalibur and the data file system are old fashioned."

Improvements needed on purchase/installation, but can't live without now
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Analysis of small molecules found in various matrices, including soil and plant and animal tissue

"There were issues in communication about when we would receive (sales rep was out of the office and left no out of office reply or secondary contact) during the purchasing process, and the installation and qualification took much longer than should have been required. So between the sale and installation, Thermo has some areas that could be tweaked. However, for our main use, which is the determination of unknown small molecule metabolites/degradants/impurities, this instrument is extremely powerful and has already made our lab much more efficient and a better partner for our clients. For this qualitative use and after operating, and I would give it five stars. "

Less-expensive way to add more orbis to your work-flow
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Metabolomics

"The Focus was a less-expensive way to get another orbi-trap into our workflow, and it proved to enter our work-stream seamlessly and match the sensitivity and reproducibility of our other Q-Exactives."

Would buy a second instrument like this if I could!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Proteomics

"The instrument is very easy to use. It is very robust, even more than expected. No loss of samples for computer of software bugs, and the results obtained are very nice. I am totally confident with this instrument and it really changed my life. "
