Expanding to the spatial dimension in metabolomics with MALDI Imaging Mass Spectrometry
November 1, 2022

Traditional LC-based metabolomics workflows give maximum depth of information for bulk materials and are critical for untargeted profiling. Additional spatial information is possible with the versatility of the timsTOF platform and enables you to do both traditional and spatial workflows on the same instrument. MALDI Imaging is a true multiomics technique that allows for spatial determination of metabolites and lipids in tissue, as well as expanding targeted analysis to glycans and proteins. The addition of microGRID technology enables true 5 micron imaging for maximum biological information gain.

4D-Proteomics™ unleashed: Real-time dia-PASEF® data processing with TIMS DIA-NN
May 18, 2022

Data Independent Analysis (DIA) – based approaches have initially been designed to address the missing value problem in discovery proteomics experiments. Despite real benefits in terms of analysis depth and quantitative coverage, their adoption has been slowed down by the need to create a spectral library ahead of the main analysis and by the global data processing complexity. While dia-PASEF® further increases the sensitivity, selectivity, and acquisition throughput of traditional DIA approaches, new processing pipelines, allowing to successfully perform spectral-library free analyses have emerged. Among those pipelines, which are increasing the accessibility and applicability of DIA approaches, DIA-NN seems to be one of the most promising. In this event, we are presenting TIMS DIA-NN, the first vendor-integrated version of DIA-NN, operating on Bruker’s real-tims PaSER platform. We will illustrate how real-time dia-PASEF® data analysis with TIMS DIA-NN allows to further increase the qualitative and quantitative outcome of dia-PASEF® experiments, as well as their throughput, and why they are to become Bruker’s preferred approach for high-performance discovery proteomics.

4D-Proteomics™ for phosphopeptide analysis
May 11, 2022

Protein phosphorylation is involved in many biological processes of importance and is therefore one of the most studied post-translational modifications. MS-based phosphoproteomics, however, remains challenging because of the lower ionization efficiency of phosphopeptides. In this event, we’ll illustrate how the increased sensitivity and selectivity brought by the TIMS separation, supported by Collisional Cross Section CCS-enabled bioinformatics, contributes to increase the number of detected, characterized, and quantified phosphopeptides in a 4D-Proteomics™ experiment.

Pushing the limits of standard-free PFAS screening with trapped ion mobility and Kendrick mass analysis
April 26, 2022

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are an important class of persistent organic pollutants and include more than 4700 compounds. Currently, environmental pollution from PFAS is very high due to decades of widespread production and use of these compounds and their chemical persistence. Comprehensive monitoring of PFAS is desirable but difficult because of the lack of reference standards and spectral libraries for compound identification.

We will present an expanded approach for comprehensive screening of PFAS based on high-resolution mass spectrometry with trapped ion mobility. In this workflow, the Kendrick mass defect of extensively fluorinated compounds is used to specifically filter for PFAS in complex matrices. PFAS identification is achieved by using a theoretical target list in combination with sophisticated tools of our MetaboScape® software for prediction of in-silico fragments and collision cross section (CCS) values.

High throughput screening of Host Cell Proteins with sub-ppm sensitivity
March 22, 2022

Many of the latest vaccines and other pharmaceutical products comprise of biological molecules produced in biological systems.

Since HCPs can interfere with product stability or cause safety risks to patients, removal of these impurities is an essential part of the downstream process. LC-MS based approaches are ideally suited to monitor the purification process as they provide excellent sensitivity together with protein specific identifications. 

During this Live from the lab session we will show how timsTOF Pro 2 with VIP-HESI, utilizing parallel accumulation-serial fragmentation (PASEF®) functionality, provides ultimate sensitivity and high throughput for HCP analysis using NISTmAb reference material as sample. 

We will guide you through the workflows and explain the functionality of VIP-HESI and the timsTOF Pro 2 instrument.

We are hoping to welcome you during this live from the lab session.

Who to attend: Scientists interested in mAB analysis, Host Cell Proteins, Protein Product Purity Determination.

timsTOF SCP – High sensitivity for unprecedented depth in immunopeptidomics
January 13, 2022

Immunopeptides are located on major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules. They help the immune system to recognize foreign substances and combat infections. Due to their low abundances in general and a non-tryptic nature, high-complexity and diversity, LC-MS analysis poses special challenges.

The timsTOF SCP allows for in depth analysis of complex mixtures with ultra-high sensitivity. In addition, PASEF® powered by trapped ion mobility (4D-Proteomics™) allows for additional separation, accumulation and accurate quantification of peptides at a high sequencing speed of up to 120 Hz. Many immunopeptides exist primarily as a singly charged species. These peptides are readily discriminated from multiply charged ion signals by their Collisional Cross Section (CCS), reducing the interference usually occurring from co-isolations in m/z only approaches. This alone is leading to cleaner MS/MS spectra.

In this webinar, we will show the benefits of the timsTOF SCP and 4D-Proteomics™ and how they improve the overall results of immunopeptidomics experiments.

More than just a dual source instrument: Introducing new powerful tools on timsTOF fleX
July 1, 2021

Understanding disease often requires comprehensive knowledge about molecular processes at their spatial occurrence. Current approaches are not seldom limited by either the analytical depth, or the lack of spatial information. We will present a unique workflow, called SpatialOMx, which bridges this gap by providing deep Omics data that is connected to the tissue origin through MALDI Imaging. Integration of PASEF® empowered 4D-Lipidomics™ results from tissue extracts make lipid annotations in MALDI images more reliable through CCS-matching, which will be demonstrated using a powerful software solution.

Switch to the next level to gain higher sensitivity for a broad range of compounds. On the timsTOF fleX, the enabled MALDI-2 technology empowers your MALDI Imaging studies with unsurpassed sensitivity and ability to map more compounds. MALDI-2 is a novel two-laser technology that will significantly boost the sensitivity of many compounds by orders of magnitude and reduces the challenging ion suppression effects in MALDI. Generate more images and extract more information from your samples with MALDI-2.

TimsTOF fleX now comes with the SCiLS™ autopilot, a software workflow which allows fully automated experiment setup enabled by Bruker’s IntelliSlides®. The SCiLS™ autopilot saves time and deskills MALDI Imaging. An important part of the new workflow also includes improvement and monitoring of the instrument performance level. Performance parameter are automatically adjusted before acquisition starts, ensuring high quality data even for beginners.
