Thermo LTQ Orbitrap Elite Hybrid Mass Spectrometer

The Thermo LTQ Orbitrap Elite mass spectrometer is a high-resolution, accurate mass instrument used for identification of proteins, peptide mass fingerprinting, characterization of protein post-translational modifications, targeted structure identification (via MSn and accurate mass), and macromolecule molecular weight determination.

This mass spectrometer is equipped with:

  • Ultra-High Resolution, Accurate Mass detection NanoLC system‌
  • APCI, ESI, HESI, and Nanospray ionization probes
  • Multiple fragmentation techniques - CID, HCD, and ETD*
  • Multi-stage tandem MS(MSn)

This unique high-resolution, hybrid platform is ideal for complex proteomic-based projects, yet is amenable to a variety of other biomolecules including discovery based metabolomics and lipidomics.

*Electron-transfer dissociation (ETD) is used to dissociate ions without disturbing labile post-translational modifications.
