Purpose: We modified the ion optics on a Tribrid mass spectrometer to improve its quadrupole selectivity, its high-mass range transmission, and its overall FTMSn duty cycle. Methods: We assessed these ion optics and scan cycle changes using a standard calibration solution, an intact protein standard, and an LC-MS analysis of a complex cellular lysate. Results: All together these ion optics modifications improve the sensitivity and selectivity of the mass spectrometer while increasing its effective analytical mass range.
