The AXIMA CFR (a Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption
- Ionisation Time of Flight Instrument) gives monoisotopic resolution
of 3000 up to a mass of 6000. It can analyse masses up to approximatel150,000Da
both in positive and negative mode, very useful for determiation
of intact proteins. Most sample types can be analysed with the use
of the correct matrix.
The IT-ToF gives the added dimensions of chromatographic
data and MSn data on each and every peak. It also has the added
feature of formula prediction from a particular mass.
