Thermo Fisher Scientific showcased several mass spectrometry and chromatography products for use in a range of proteomics research applications at the recent 14th Annual Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) World Congress.

‘The ability to discover and quantify new proteins continues to accelerate at a record pace,’ said Ken Miller, vice president of research product marketing, life science mass spectrometry for Thermo Fisher. ‘This year marks the 10th anniversary of our Orbitrap technology, a key driver of scientific advances in proteomics and allied research fields. At HUPO this week, we celebrate our customers’ success in advancing life science research forward into the next decade and beyond.’

HUPO Highlights

  • Proteomics laboratories can benefit from a new nano UHPLC system, with dedicated columns, as a front-end for liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS). The new Thermo Scientific EASY-nLC 1200 system, with an increased pressure capacity of 1200 bar, is designed to provide effortless separation performance and high-throughput capacity. A new 75cm Thermo Scientific Acclaim PepMap nanoLC column uses the 1200 bar pressure capability to provide higher peak capacity for increased sensitivity and resolution.
  • Making its HUPO debut, the new Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Fusion Lumos Tribrid Mass Spectrometer is the newest addition to the line of pioneering Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Tribrid mass spectrometers. Designed to expand researchers’ capabilities in advanced proteomics and metabolomics applications, the system provides state-of-the-art performance for protein ID and differential analysis, data-independent acquisition (DIA), and protein structure studies, including top-down analyses. The Orbitrap Fusion Lumos Tribrid has the industry’s highest level of sensitivity, delivering complete protein sequence coverage with unprecedented speed.
  • The new Thermo Scientific ProSwift C4 RP-5H column improves the speed and resolution of protein separations by LC-MS. Based on a C4 monolithic structure, this new column can be operated over a wide range of flow rates and offers superior performance for fast, high-resolution LC-MS separations for protein identification, biomarker discovery and systems biology studies.
  • Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Thermo Scientific Tandem Mass Tag (TMT) Research Awards. The annual award recognizes excellence in proteomics and includes grant awards of up to $10,000 in tandem mass tagging and other related sample preparation reagents that are designed to streamline and standardize global protein expression studies using mass spectrometry.
