Thermo Scientific LTQ Orbitrap Velos™
Thermo Scientific detailed information
LTQ Orbitrap Velos is a hybrid mass spectrometer incorporating the LTQ Velos™ dual cell linear trap and the Orbitrap™ analyzer. The LTQ Orbitrap is a high performance LC-MS and MSn system, combining rapid LTQ ion trap data acquisition with high mass accuracy Orbitrap mass analysis. Significantly, the Orbitrap XL ETD includes two fragmentation regimes, higher-energy C-trap dissociation (HCD) and electron transfer dissociation (ETD), that are complementary to the LTQ’s collision induced dissociation (CID) option. These additional, alternative fragmentation capabilities are essential for the success of the diverse projects focused on phosphoproteomics; posttranslational modification analyses and “middle-down” proteomics.
