Thermo Fisher Scientific introduced its Thermo Scientific Exactive, a benchtop liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) system designed for high-throughput and high-performance screening and compound identification applications, at Pittcon 2009. The system leverages the company’s proven Orbitrap mass-analyzer technology to provide precise and reliable information.
The system improves laboratory efficiency and throughput by streamlining many of the technical steps that normally require specialized set-up and operation. An intuitive software interface makes the system easy to use in both expert and ‘walk-up’ mode, while ensuring precise mass identification of target compounds over a wide concentration range, according to Thermo Fisher Scientific. While simple to operate, the system sets new standards for LC-MS performance at resolutions of up to 100,000. When combined with excellent single-scan mass accuracy in positive and negative modes, the Exactive system produces accurate, high-throughput screening and compound identification.
The system’s Pathfinder software provides the right workflow for the right analysis, enabling experienced users to tune and optimize the system, develop methods, and perform a wide range of experiments. New users and non-mass spectrometrists can easily follow developed methods to get analytical answers quickly and automatically, according to the company.
