Denisov E, Damoc E, Lange O, Makarov A. Int J Mass Spectrom. 2012 Jun 21;325-327:80-85 Experiments on a modified Orbitrap Elite™ instrument have shown that Orbitrap technology is capable of resolving power in excess of 1,000,000 when appropriate tolerance and tuning requirements are met. Such levels are achieved for m/z<300–400 within a 3s detection time which makes it compatible with several types of chromatographic separations. It was shown that resolving powers over 500,000–1,000,000 allow resolution of fine isotopic structure and direct identification of some important post-translational modifications of peptides.
