Waters benchtop and research-grade time-of-flight (Tof) and quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometers (QTof) – the Waters Xevo®, Synapt® HDMS mass spectrometers, and LCT Premier™ – are state-of-the-art instruments known for their ability to elucidate the structure of biomolecules – be they individual proteins, protein complexes, protein metabolites, protein biomarkers. Their ability to make exact mass measurements – pinpointing a molecular ion's mass-to-charge ratio to four decimal places – makes Tof mass spectrometers a favorite for identifying unknown molecules and assigning them a structure.
Recent advances in technology are making Tof mass spectrometers more capable of quantifying proteins in samples enabling scientists to perform qualitative and quantitative experiments in a single analysis, something that was virtually impossible to do a few years ago.
