Maximize LC/MS information with rapid and reliable compound detection and structural identification and quantification
A high-throughput strategy, including simultaneous identification and quantification of multiple drugs, is necessary to accelerate lead optimization. Such studies provide feedback to guide synthesis efforts, and to optimize pharmacokinetic and safety characteristics of drug candidates. The combination of fast cycle time and high spectral quality using the LXQ is key to quickly screening for drugs and their metabolites.
Quantification and robustness for forensics
The LXQ delivers high accuracy and precision for quantitative analysis, along with a linear dynamic range of four orders of magnitude. The high ion storage capacity of the LXQ linear ion trap provides reliable quantification in complex matrices with superior qualitative results.
Increase productivity with reliable instrument operation
The Ion Max™ source and the LXQ offer outstanding robustness for the most demanding analytical applications. As leading innovators of ion trap technology, Thermo ion traps are built from the best-integrated designs resulting in long-term operation and consistent spectra generation.
Rapid screening for proteomics
The LXQ offers routine protein and peptide identification. The LXQ delivers high sensitivity MS/MS spectra for resolving coeluting peptides often seen in protein digests. The high spectral quality of the LXQ results in high correlation scores for confident sequence identification.
