Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc will show its expanded portfolio of chromatography solutions within the Thermo Scientific and Dionex booths at the 36th International Symposium on High-Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2011), a first since Thermo Fisher acquired Dionex. Among the range of instruments, software, and consumables on display will be the newly launched Thermo Scientific Accucore HPLC column range. These new products, alongside launches of mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography instruments used in advanced proteomic research, can be seen within the Thermo Scientific and Dionex booths during HPLC 2011, June 19-23, Budapest.

“By combining the rich heritage of the existing Thermo Scientific and Dionex chromatography offerings with our new offerings being launched at HPLC, Thermo Fisher is giving customers an even more comprehensive portfolio of chromatography instruments, consumables, software, services, and applications expertise,” said Greg Herrema, president, analytical instruments at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The new capabilities presented at HPLC are creating greater possibilities for scientists worldwide, making analyses more comprehensive and ensuring optimal speed, sensitivity and versatility."

Founded on state-of-the-art Core Enhanced Technology and utilizing vast experience in phase bonding and packing, the Thermo Scientific Accucore HPLC column range is a major addition to Thermo Fisher’s portfolio. It provides a unique chromatography solution to enhance laboratory workflow and efficiency by providing increased sensitivity and peak resolution in columns that are compatible with almost any instrument.

Showcasing its commitment to advancing proteomics research, Thermo Fisher is launching the Thermo Scientific EASY-nLC 1000 split-free nano-flow system at HPLC 2011. The system significantly increases chromatographic resolution and, as a result protein and peptide identifications, with effortless ultra-high pressure operation. In addition, the company will also showcase the newly introduced Thermo Scientific Velos Pro linear ion trap and Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Velos Pro hybrid FTMS mass spectrometers, systems that provide improved quantitative performance, faster scanning, Trap-Higher Energy Collision Dissociation (HCD) and enhanced robustness.

Thermo Fisher is also introducing the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive high-performance benchtop quadrupole-Orbitrap LC-MS/MS, combining quadrupole precursor selection and high-resolution accurate mass (HR/AM) Orbitrap mass analysis to deliver high confidence quantitative and qualitative (quan/qual) workflows. With innovative HR/AM Quanfirmation capability, the Q Exactive mass spectrometer can identify, quantify and confirm more trace-level peptides and proteins in complex mixtures in one analytical run. The new Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Elite hybrid mass spectrometer provides the resolution and sensitivity needed to improve the determination of the molecular weights of intact proteins within laboratories, as well as enable greater proteome coverage through improved protein, PTM and peptide identification, even at low abundances.
