Bruker debuts 18T mass spec system
Bruker Daltonics has unveiled an 18T Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS) system at the 2009 International Mass Spectrometry Conference in Bremen, Germany, Aug. 30-Sept. 4.

The 18T FTMS will impact a variety of research areas including protein identification, petroleomics, metabolomics, small molecule tissue molecular imaging and environmental sample analysis, according to the Billerica, Mass.-based Bruker.

The design of this new horizontal bore 18T FTMS magnet is based on Bruker’s extensive design and production experience for ultra high field vertical and horizontal bore magnets for NMR [nuclear MR spectroscopy], MRI, EPR [electron paramagnetic resonance] and FTMS, the company said.
