A new High Resolution Mass Spectrometer Q Exactive HF

BIOASTER Omics’ Hub acquired a new High Resolution Mass Spectrometer Q Exactive HF.

The Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ HF hybrid quadrupole-Orbitrap mass spectrometer features an ultra-high-field Orbitrap analyzer which doubles its speed and resolution.

This new MS instrument will complete our existing park, in order to increase our analytical capacity. But it will also offer new technical possibilities for both metabolomics & proteomics, such as:

  • enhanced metabolic signatures for our Met-SAMoA® platform, thanks to the resolving power of 240,000;
  • higher lipidomics analysis throughput, thanks to the scan speed up to 18 Hz
  • multiple quantitation approaches: Data-Independent Acquisition (DIA), Selected Ion Monitoring (SIM), Parallel Reaction Monitoring (PRM);
  • enhanced analysis of intact proteins.

By this acquisition, BIOASTER reinforces its capability to answer the needs of our partners in the Omics field and to develop new technology approaches in metabolomics & proteomics.
