Bruker introduces next-generation ultra-sensitive ion trap
27 May 2009
Bruker Daltonics has has launched its next-generation
ultra-sensitive, ion trap amaZon series. It has 10-times improved MS/MS
sensitivity over current platforms, novel technology for accelerated
data acquisition, significantly enhanced mass resolution, and
second-generation fast and sensitive ETD/PTR capabilities.
The amaZon builds upon Bruker’s long experience in ion trap
technologies, and is designed to enhance capabilities in research areas
such as bottom-up proteomics, high-throughput and ultra-sensitive PTM
analysis, metabolomics, compound screening and identification, and
detailed chemical and structural analysis.
The amaZon series is offered in two versions: amaZon ETD for
proteomics, and amaZon X for small molecule analysis and applied
Bruker Daltonics Vice President Dr Arnd Ingendoh commented: “The
performance of the amaZon will completely redefine the use of ion traps
across an increasing range of application areas.
"With new, unparalleled levels of sensitivity, acquisition speed and
mass resolution combined with ease-of-use, smart automation and an array
of software modules for faster high-value information generation, the
amaZon offers a new level of performance and confidence in many small
molecule and applied market segments.
"In proteomics, the amaZon is a very powerful ESI-MS/MS system with
ultra-sensitive, fully automated ETD/PTR, and represents a perfect
complement to MALDI-TOF/TOF technology for the broadest array of
proteomic analysis capabilities.”
