Enhanced Peptide Identification with an Ultra High Resolution Mass Spectrometer

Analysis of biological samples frequently involves the identification of peptides from low amounts of complex samples. Confident identification of these peptides requires rapid generation of high quality, high sensitivity MS and MS–MS data. The maXis TOF mass spectrometer incorporates novel technical innovations, which together produce an unprecedented level of data quality, resulting in a significant increase in the number of peptides identified from challenging samples.

Multitargeting Pesticides

The usefulness of liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry–mass spectrometry (LC–MS-MS) methods for the unambiguous identification and quantification of pesticides in complex matrix samples is well known. Triple-quadrupole systems have proven to be useful for this task because of their high specificity in MS-MS mode and their low detection limits. However, working in MS-MS mode makes any MS system blind to other compounds of interest.
