New autoflex™ speed MALDI-TOF(/TOF) Delivers Superior Performance

At Pittcon 2014, Bruker have announced the launch of the newest member in the successful Flex™ series of MALDI-TOF(/TOF) mass spectrometers, the new autoflex™ speed. The new autoflex speed delivers superior performance by incorporating numerous innovative technology advancements which provide further enhanced data quality, acquisition speed, class-leading mass and dynamic range, and general robust and efficient performance.

It’s extending the applications envelope of MALDI TOF/TOF far beyond the conventional concepts of what’s possible in molecular histology, glycoprotein and biopharmaceuticals analysis.

By leveraging Bruker’s long-standing expertise in high-performance MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry the new autoflex speed is designed to dramatically enhance the productivity of laboratories involved in protein sequencing, biomarker discovery, polymer analysis, lipid and glycan analysis, molecular imaging, drug and metabolite tissue distribution, as well as high-throughput MALDI Biotyper microbiological molecular identification.

System configurations can be optimized for a number of different analytical operations and environments utilizing both TOF and TOF/TOF modes in combination with dedicated Hardware and Software tools for a variety of proteomics, imaging, polymer and small molecule applications.

Already the acknowledged leader in Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MSI), the new autoflex speed system incorporates the Bruker patented smartbeam™-II laser, now with up to 2 kHz repetition rate with true-pixel image resolution at 20µm for proteins. This development marks a milestone in the pioneering smartbeam laser technology, designed and manufactured exclusively by Bruker for unmatched performance in MALDI mass spectrometry.
