MassTech AP Maldi Ion Source. The original AP/MALDI ion source allows MALDI-MSn capabilities with your Thermo Finnigan LCQ Classic series ITMS.
DETAILS *Fast analyses - AP/MALDI operates at atmospheric pressure; no pump down time is needed. Sample plates can be loaded in seconds.
*High sensitivity - Low-femtomole to attomole sample amounts spotted on the sample plate can be detected. v *Searchable MS/MS spectra - AP/MALDI generates MS and MS/MS data quickly and easily. Allows database searching for protein identification. AP/MALDI MS/MS data is much easier to acquire than MALDI-TOFs post-source decay data.
*Complementary data - The MALDI capability, on a typically ESI instrument, allows analysis of singly charged ions and when combined with an ion trap allows MSn. Generation of MALDI data complements multiply-charged data from ESI.
*Rapidly interchangeable - The design of the AP/MALDI source is similar to that of the ESI source so changing sources is simple. Switching to AP/MALDI only takes minutes.
*Excellent reliability - With new pulsed dynamic focusing (PDF) technology which has been added to AP/MALDI systems, laser misalignments are eliminated and a robust stable operation is achieved. All AP/MALDI systems are delivered pre-configured/aligned, and go through rigorous quality testing.
*Great Value - AP/MALDI is also the most cost effective method of getting MS/MS data from MALDI ions. Adding AP/MALDI to an existing instrument is far less expensive than purchasing a new Q-TOF or TOF-TOF instrument. And AP/MALDI provides searchable MS and MS/MS spectra that answer many of the same questions.
