SHIMADZU AXIMA ASSURANCE Linear MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometer
The Axima Assurance is designed with the general analytical and life science laboratory in mind. Incorporating a variable repetition rate 50Hz N2 laser, the system provides high quality rapid MALDI mass spectra and an array of software tools for data processing and reporting.
Positive and negative ion modes are included as standard, allowing greater flexibility and extending the compound categories that may be analysed. The system also incorporates a patented beam blanker to optionally remove unwanted low mass ions and prevent detector saturation.
High sensitivity is achieved using near-axis laser irradiation and advanced ion optics for enhanced ion transmission. Pulsed extraction of ions from the MALDI source improves resolution and enhanced calibration algorithms with easy to use software provide more accurate data.
Unparalleled flexibility is achieved by a variety of sample target formats including standard microtitre plate format 96 or 384 well targets. Fleximass microscope slides (plain or 48 well targets) and a wide variety of adaptors for unconventional sample layouts are also available. The standard sample target formats are fully compatible with common laboratory robots, including the CHIPTM.
An affordable, robust option for laboratories requiring routine manual or automated analysis of a wide variety of sample classes, the AXIMA Assurance MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer provides high-quality, rapid MALDI mass spectra and an array of software tools for data processing and reporting. Incorporating a variable repetition rate 50Hz N2 laser, it is ideally suited for high-throughput QA/QC analysis of oligonucleotide/primers, synthetic peptides/proteins, polymers, and other small molecules.
Like all AXIMA MALDI-TOF systems, the AXIMA Assurance can be fully integrated with robotic sample preparation devices, including the AccuSpot MALDI plate spotter and CHIP chemical printer, to create application-specific platforms. Integration with the CHIP creates a powerful platform for tissue imaging, while using an AXIMA instrument with a Prominence GPC system and AccuSpot results in a fully automated platform for polymer analysis that delivers quick, detailed analysis of ultra-trace substances.
Launchpad software facilitates the seamless analysis of as few or as many samples as required and achieves the maximum result with minimal user input, making it ideal for novice and expert users alike.
With this software, the AXIMA Assurance MALDI-TOF MS is ideally suited for high-throughput QA/QC application areas, such as:
- Synthetic peptides/proteins
- Polymer analysis
- Small molecules
