The space-saving MALDI-8020 achieves performance specifications similar to those of larger, more expensive MALDI-TOF models but in a significantly smaller footprint. It improves laboratory efficiency and accelerates analysis through a newly designed load-lock system for rapid sample target introduction and a solid-state laser for fast data acquisition speeds. Using linear time of flight, this compact system enables low-level detection of proteins, peptides, and polymers, among other analytes. Also, it easily accommodates standard laboratory workflows such as peptide mass fingerprinting for simple protein ID confirmation, in-source decay and polymer distribution analysis. An integrated barcode scanner will allow a seamless workflow from loading samples to obtaining results.
