ASMS Advances

ASMS always sees a raft of new hardware and software launches in the mass spectrometry space, and this year was no exception. Read on for a (highly selective) re-cap of some of the top tech innovations that made their debut in sunny San Diego.

  • Bruker released the “game-changing” scimaX™ Magnetic Resonance Mass Spectrometer, plus the timsTOF™ Pro.
  • Thermo Fisher Scientific had a busy show, with a number of new launches, including:
  • Q Exactive UHMR Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer, combining high-resolution, high-
  • sensitivity MS2 and pseudo-MS3 capabilities;
  • Orbitrap ID-X Tribrid Mass Spectrometer, combining Orbitrap and linear ion trap mass analyzer technologies;
  • TriPlus AutoSampler and Liquid Handling System with Robotic Tool Change.
  • SCIEX launched its SCIEX OS 1.4 software, for quantitative and qualitative analysis on the majority of SCIEX instruments.
  • Shimadzu announced the release of the Cell Culture Media Analysis Platform, C2MAPTM-2000, a fully automated and integrated sample preparation workstation for the analysis of cell culture media. The company also premiered their new quadrupole time-of-flight (Q-TOF) LCMS-9030 system and the Nexera Mikros Microflow Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry System.
  • Waters took the opportunity to preview its new Xevo TQ-GC mass spectrometer, GC-MS/MS system for food safety and quality laboratories, which will officially be launched later in the year. Also showcased at ASMS was the new direct-from-sample analytical system from Waters in collaboration with IonSense, Inc – the DART QDa System with LiveID.
  • CEM Corporation introduced the new EDGE™ extraction system for rapid sample preparation of GC/LC samples.
  • Peak Scientific used their first ASMS hospitality suite to promote the launch of the new GENIUS XE gas generator.
  • 908 Devices announced expanded compatibility for their ZipChip™ application, which can now be used with mass spectrometers including Thermo’s Lumos and SCIEX’s QTRAP instruments.
  • Advion, Inc introduced a new molecular identification software suite, TAMI, for their expression Compact Mass Spectrometer.
