Here we are on day three of ASMS 2017 and the exciting new technology being introduced at the show has the show floor buzzing. The new mass spectrometer platform -- Thermo Scientific Q Exactive HF-X Hybrid Quadrupole Orbitrapmass spectrometer -- is setting new standards for depth of analysis, quantitative accuracy and reproducibility, enabling scientists to advance disease research and drug discovery. The new Q Exactive HF-X platform includes technical advances meant to deliver significant performance improvements, making it the new flagship of the Q Exactive mass spectrometer product family.
Scientists studying complex protein samples can now utilize this new high-performing Orbitrap mass spectrometer designed to quickly and consistently produce superior data quality for challenging workflows across life science research and biopharma applications. For R&D scientists, the instrument delivers extremely fast and accurate mass analysis, plus two-to-three-fold sensitivity improvements, delivering the same number of protein identifications in half of the time required for previous models. For biopharma scientists, the Q Exactive HF-X instrument provides up to eight times better signal to noise ratio for native, intact monoclonal antibody mass determination, glycoprofiling and purity checks.
