At the 71st ASMS meeting, Bruker Corporation (Nasdaq: BRKR) highlights its commitment to develop novel technology and improved mass spec workflows for the applied markets requirements of robustness, ease-of-use, and highest confidence in food/beverage, forensic/toxicology, industrial and environmental analysis.

Chromatography-Free Point-of-Need (PoN) Applied Workflows

Applied mass spectrometry is evolving to where customers require simplified, robust, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable workflows. In response, Bruker is introducing the unique triple-quad (TQ) mass spectrometer EVOQ DART-TQ+, a high-performance workhorse that enables straightforward routine analysis from simplified tuning and method development through data analysis and report generation for improved efficiency and productivity. Featuring the first and only fully integrated DART™ (Direct Analysis in Real Time) ionization source, the EVOQ DART-TQ+ eliminates complex and time-consuming gas or liquid chromatography for many point-of-need routine workflows.

Ultimate ESI-TOF Sensitivity for Applied and Metabolomics Markets

Bruker launches new impact™ II VIP high-resolution QTOF mass spectrometer with the novel VIP-HESI source, delivering ultimate sensitivity for comprehensive screening and quantitation tasks. Building on the proven reliability of the impact QTOF series, new technical innovations further enhance the sensitivity of the impact II VIP in Full-Sensitivity High-Resolution mode with no compromise in high-performance mass resolution, sensitivity, and dynamic range.

timsTOF for Ultimate Selectivity and Confidence

Bruker implements the new TargetScreener™ 4D which brings the power of TIMS (trapped ion mobility spectrometry) to analyte screening and quantitation. Backed by more than 2,400 measured and predicted analyte CCS (collision cross section) values, TargetScreener 4D provides ultimate confidence in highly selective LC-TIMS-QTOF compound quantitation with even more reliable identification.

Jeffrey Zonderman, President of the Bruker Applied Mass Spectrometry division, commented: “With the world’s first fully integrated DART-TQ-MS system, we are pioneering chromatography-free workflows for the applied markets and for point-of-need mass spec applications. We are excited to introduce the EVOQ DART-TQ+, as simplified systems with greater ease of use, shorter analysis times, lower cost of ownership, and significantly reduced solvent usage are major steps in the evolution of ‘MS for the masses’.”

Jeffery Moran, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of PinPoint Testing, LLC added: “As our company provides total solutions ToxBox® kits for MS analysis in forensic toxicology, we see a large opportunity to reduce complexity and cost for our customers. We are pleased to collaborate with Bruker on next-generation workflows, and the initial results look fantastic.”
