Thermo Fisher Scientific have introduced a new compact, benchtop mass spectrometer, the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris 480 mass spectrometer that provides enhanced quantitative performance across label-free and tandem mass tag (TMT) experiments, as well as access to new Thermo Scientific SureQuant methods for ultra-sensitive targeted protein assays. This combination allows researchers to conduct rapid, multiplexed analysis of proteins within complex biological matrices. The instrument has a smaller footprint than previous generations, as well as new features to extend uptime and improve serviceability for researchers in high-throughput laboratory environments. Expanded protein coverage is available through enhancements to instrument design and use of the Thermo Scientific FAIMS Pro interface to enhance precursor ion selectivity. Management of this interface is fully incorporated into control software for easy integration.
The Orbitrap Exploris 480 mass spectrometer can easily be integrated into a laboratory’s routine workflows with the Thermo Scientific Almanac web-based application, which allows users to view instrument operation and data acquisition in real time and receive notifications on the status of runs. This offers scientists the convenience of improved visibility to the utilisation of their laboratory systems, no matter how busy they are or where they are.
