LTQ Orbitrap mass spectrometer


Thermo-Scientific-LTQ-Orbitrap-XL-mass-spectrometerThe LTQ Orbitrap mass spectrometer (Thermo Fisher Scientific) is equipped with a nano-electrospray ionization source which is interfaced to the nanoUPLC Easy LC 1000 from Proxeon Biosystems.

The MS/MS acquisition is downstream to a CID (collision induced dissociation) fragmentation. The high resolution mass spectrometer is able to carry out quantitative proteomics analyses, both label-free and SILAC approaches; PTM characterization can be easily performed.
