Bruker's maXis ETD Sets New Records for Intact Protein Characterisation and Top-down Sequencing

User Rating: / 3
PoorBest 

Bruker and several collaborating scientists are presenting a number of milestone achievements in the analysis of intact proteins, including the direct sequencing and characterisation using Bruker's new maXis ETD system. The high mass accuracy, resolving power and dynamic range which are essential to dissect complex patterns of product ions in protein fragmentation allowed, for the first time, performing ETD-based tandem mass spectrometry on biomolecular ions above 60 kDa routinely. These results represent a new record for the mass spectrometric sequencing of intact proteins and unequivocally demonstrate the dramatic advantages of maXis ETD technology in ETD-based top-down protein structural analysis.
