Description

The Thermo Fusion Orbitrap is a fast, ultra-high-resolution mass spectrometer. Its design permits users the depth of analysis, resulting in analysing even the most challenging low-abundance, high-complexity or difficult samples to identify more compounds faster, quantify more accurately and elucidate structures more thoroughly.

The Tribrid architecture, with an independent ion-routing multipole controlled Dynamic Scan Management, enables massive parallelisation, significantly increases scan rates and maximises versatility. Any of three dissociation techniques – CID, HCD and ETD – can be performed at any fragmentation stage, followed by analysis in either the linear ion trap or Orbitrap mass analyser.
