The LCQ Fleet LC-MS system from Thermo Fisher Scientific provides sample analysis in the general analytical lab as well as toxicological screening, natural products characterization, and peptide identification applications. It enables rapid identification and characterization of known and unknown natural products without the need for a lengthy pre-purification process.
The LCQ Fleet enables routine peptide identification with high correlation scores for sequence identification. The fast scanning capability of the instrument resolves co-eluting peptides often present in complex protein digests. The LCQ Fleet operates on the Windows-based Thermo Scientific Xcalibur software platform, which provides automated LC-MS/MS instrument control as well as data acquisition, processing, and results delivery.
