autoflex™ series

High-Performance MALDI-TOF Systems

Accelerated results with Increased Speed and Efficiency

Innovative MALDI-TOF and TOF/TOF technology designed and optimized to be easy-to-use; robust systems for both traditional MALDI applications (reliable and detailed protein/peptide characterization, and polymer analysis) as well as cutting edge work (high resolution MALDI Tissue Imaging, glycan analysis or high-throughput MALDI Biotyper microbial identification). Further improved smartbeam™-II laser technology with up to 1,000 Hz repetition rate is a must for MALDI Tissue Imaging and delivers superior performance for any Proteomics project.

Different applications require dedicated instrument setups. The most flexible autoflex instruments are available in linear only mode, high resolution reflectron mode and the latest TOF/TOF technology (LIFT™) which enables the use of various MS/MS techniques (e.g. LID, high energy CID) for fast and sensitive MS/MS experiments.

The potential for on-site instrument upgrades accommodates the challenging demands of ever changing application requirements whilst optimizing and protecting the value of the instrument.

Using the gridless scoutMTP™ Ion Source with laser-based self-cleaning capability in conjunction with PAN™ (panoramic) broadband mass focusing allows impressive simultaneous mass resolution across an expanded mass range leading to optimum results free from instrument tuning.

smartbeam-II delivers uncompromising MALDI performance

The MALDI customized smartbeam-II technology with adjustable repetition rates of up to 1,000 Hz is exclusively developed, manufactured and maintained by Bruker for unsurpassed MALDI results.

Significant enhancements in sensitivity and mass resolution linked with computer controlled variable laser focus size are the key features of the proprietary laser technology.

The smartbeam-II laser dramatically expands the scope of prospective applications:

  • maintain uncompromised dried-droplet HCCA performance
  • achieve highest sensitivity from thin layer preparations
  • maximize linear instrument performance for large protein applications
  • adjustable focus size to gain perfect access to MALDI-Tissue Imaging applications with highest spatial resolution

PAN enables wide mass range focusing

Broadband mass resolving power up to 26,000 enables precision proteomics via Bruker’s unique PAN™ technology for highest mass resolution across a very broad mass range, not just in a narrow mass window. This capability provides increased identification results and sequence coverage in bottom-up and top-down proteomics
