|Item||prOTOF 2000 MALDI O-TOF Mass Spectrometer|
|Description|| The new MALDI O-TOF creates a new category for MALDI. It is based on an orthogonal platform that has been licensed to the PerkinElmerSCIEX joint venture from the University of Manitoba.
As the first single MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer with an orthogonal design and collisional cooling, the prOTOF 2000 represents a substantial leap forward from conventional MALDI-TOF in mass accuracy and stability across a wide mass range, making possible much higher rates of successful protein identification.
MALDIs commercially available today are predominantly based on what is referred to as a "linear" or "axial" design. This axial geometry necessitates that the MALDI source (which is the area where ions are generated) be directly coupled or linked to the TOF mass spectrometer. In doing this, any discrepancies that are associated with the ionization of the sample and/or the sample target (the substrate on which the sample is deposited) are carried out to the detector. This can affect instrument performance in the areas of accuracy, resolution, and sensitivity.
