New mass spectrometry portfolio uses cutting-edge hardware and software for advanced quantitative analysis

Sep 23 2021

Lab personnel in food and environmental laboratories can reap the benefits of accelerated throughput and enhanced sensitivity to comply with ever-changing legislative requirements and enable the rapid responses required for managing emerging and established human and environmental health risks.

Thermo Scientific’s TSQ Plus triple quadrupole mass spectrometer (MS) portfolio excalates workflow throughput thanks to superior data acquisition and polarity switching speeds. The upgraded low-mass product ion transmission efficiency improves sensitivity in key target applications. The new triple quadrupole MS portfolio consists of the TSQ Altis Plus, TSQ Quantis Plus and TSQ Fortis Plus MS and is ideal for a variety of applications, from targeted quantitation to ground-breaking research. Intuitive mass calibration routines and method optimisation, combined with market-leading chromatography and data processing software solutions, enhances ease of use to overcome future analytical challenges.

Professor Julijana Ivanisevic from  University of Lausanne, stated “The TSQ Altis Plus platform is a step forward toward omics-scale, quantitative MS-based methodology for in-depth investigation of metabolism. The unprecedented acquisition speed of the TSQ Altis Plus allows us to maximise the metabolome coverage and significantly enhances the peak definition, essential for accurate quantification. The TSQ Altis Plus mass spectrometer allows for robust quantification of low abundant species, thus complementing the comprehensiveness of measured metabolite signature. This increase in productivity, along with the quantitative aspect, is crucial for metabolic phenotyping of human populations, a prerequisite for the transfer to clinical settings.”

How will operators benefit from the TSQ Plus triple quadrupole MS portfolio?

1. More system uptime thanks to enhanced quadrupole mass stability.

2. Direct instrument method transfers from Thermo Scientific’s  TSQ MS portfolio to the TSQ Plus MS portfolio, permitting simplified transfers.

3. ITSQ Plus is integrated with the mzCloud database to offer Selective Reaction Monitoring (SRM) transition information with predicted collision energy.

4. Integration with liquid- and ion-chromatography systems/ software to deliver powerful quantitative application solutions.
