Fusion Lumos Tribrid OrbitrapFusion Lumos Tribrid Orbitrap

The Fusion Lumos has increased speed and sensitivity, resulting in more peptide and protein identifications and will allow the MSRL to dramatically improve the quality and quantity of data from customer samples.  The combination of the ion trap and Orbitrap enables MS3 analysis, which greatly increases the accuracy of multiplexed TMT experiments.

New ETD fragmentation methods keep PTM modifications intact, improving localization accuracy.  The MSRL is excited to bring this technology and its considerable improvements to proteomic data to the university community.

Q Exactive Plus Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap​

QExactive PlusThe Q Exactive Plus combines quadrupole precursor ion selection with high-resolution accurate-mass Orbitrap detection. The superior quality of this instrument enables the analysis and quantification of small molecules from a number of different biological matrices, including serum, plasma, urine, saliva, etc.
