Bruker announced new accessibility for its high resolution, accurate mass technology. The COMPACT LC-QqTOF mass spectrometer achieves sensitivity levels normally associated with high-end triple-quadrupole instruments while delivering research grade, high-resolution full scan data at high UHPLC speeds. COMPACT leverages the latest ion guide and high-transmission MSMS cell from the IMPACT LC-QqTOF introduced at ASMS 2011, in a bench-top format making this capability available for all routine analytical tasks. Thanks to the 10 bit ADC detection technology the COMPACT system gains a 3-4 times higher dynamic range during real LC timescales. This delivers productivity gains by increased robustness to sample variation allowing reduced sample pretreatment. The new technology also provides 50 GBit/sec sampling speed. The COMPACT debuts with the latest version of Bruker’s Compass Software 1.6 featuring new autoMSMS acquisitions that intelligently react in real time to optimize acquisition parameters to the incident sample. The modes simplify method development and provide immediate analytical results in the hands of routine users .The software will also be available as an upgrade for all IMPACT customers.
