The first high resolution LCMS-ion trap-time-of-flight mass spectrometer
Featuring MSn Capability
Shimadzu's new LCMS-IT-TOF is a novel hybrid mass spectrometer for biomarker
discovery, metabolite identification and human health research, and ideal for
applications in forensics, drug development, and environmental chemistry.
Coupling atmospheric pressure ionization with Ion-Trap (IT) and Time-of-Flight (TOF)
technologies, the LCMS-IT-TOF delivers high mass accuracy and high mass
resolution (10,000 at 1000 m/z) independent of MS mode.
The LCMS-IT-TOF allows more qualitative information about a sample to be
collected in a single run.
This enables researchers and scientists to:
- Elucidate structures of new molecules
- Identify impurities and contaminants
- Analyze metabolites and biomarkers to evaluate biological pathways
The LCMS-IT-TOF has been designed to maximize sensitivity and selectivity by
optimizing the ion transport to the TOF analyzer and redefining the capability
of the quadrupole ion trap. The ion trap is used to focus ions before ejection
into the TOF as well as supporting MSn analysis with effective
precursor ion selection capabilities (resolution > 1,000 at 1,000 m/z).
