The first MALDI TOF/TOF that adapts to your need

Our passion is mass spectrometry that you need. With the rapifleX series our engineers and developers have created the first MALDI–TOF system that now adapts to the analytical question at hand - automatically.

 

With speed in mind, we redesigned the heart of the rapifleX MALDI Imaging solution to work up to 20 times faster than traditional MALDI-TOF systems to meet the increasing requirements of tissue imaging or high throughput primary screening. 

 

The adaptable ion optics and class leading laser technology provide the best data quality, regardless of the acquisition mode or mass range.

The whole is more than the sum of its parts

The unprecedented 10 kHz speed and ion source robustness, the wide dynamic range, higher specificity and resolution, all contribute to the detailed characterization of biologically and clinically relevant lipids, peptides and proteins, raising customer MALDI-TOF/TOF expectations for applications such as:

In-depth protein characterization and imaging of tissues and cell cultures.

 

 

Most robust, yet easy to access ion source. All sensitive surfaces are in safe distance to the source of possible contaminations. When necessary, the capsular like ion source can be easily removed  and just rinsed with solvent. The rapifleX stands uninter

Speed - 10 kHz scanning smartbeam 3D laser for highest throughput – 5-20x increase in speed

 

Robustness - User removable ion source for easy cleaning, designed for maximum uptime in 24/7 operations

 

Confidence

  • Ion optics adapt to application
  • Three-stage reflector: No compromise, maximum resolution for full molecular weight range
  • Removable MS/MS ion optics for maximized sensitivity for MS analysis
  • MS/MS mass range for large peptides such as glycopeptides, di/trisulfide peptides and difficult non-tryptic peptides
  • Precursor ion selector resolution increased to 1000 –  for high selectivity in complex mixtures.
  • Supreme precursor ion selection for confidence in MS/MS data quality
  • 10 bit digitizer for high dynamic range
