The autoflex speed from Bruker is the newest member in the Flex series of MALDI-TOF(/TOF) mass spectrometers. The system incorporates numerous technology advancements, that provide enhanced data quality, acquisition speed, mass and dynamic range, and performance.
The autoflex speed is designed to improve the productivity of laboratories involved in protein sequencing, biomarker discovery, polymer analysis, lipid and glycan analysis, molecular imaging, drug and metabolite tissue distribution, as well as high-throughput MALDI Biotyper microbiological molecular identification. System configurations can be adjusted for a number of different analytical operations and environments using both TOF and TOF/TOF modes in combination with hardware and software tools for a variety of proteomics, imaging, polymer, and small molecule applications.
In addition, the autoflex speed system incorporates the Bruker patented smartbeam-II laser, with up to 2 kHz repetition rate and true-pixel image resolution at 20µm for proteins.
