Bruker SolariX XR� FT-ICR Mass Spectrometer

solarixThe 12T solariX XR� FT-ICR MS is a high performance hybrid system which combines the unsurpassed FT-ICR technologies and advanced triple quadrupole (QqQ) into a single instrument. This instrument has unprecedented analytical power and versatility, ultra high-resolution and sensitivity, and a variety of tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) capabilities for top-down proteomics and metabolomics studies. The solariX XR� system allows for mass resolution greater than 10 million. This level of eXtreme Resolution (XR�) represents an order of magnitude quantum jump in mass resolving power, opens up entirely new scientific frontiers in chemistry and molecular biology and enables novel scientific investigations. The solariX XR is capable to reveal the fine structure in isotopic patterns that are uniquely specific to the exact molecular formulae of the detected compounds.
