Combining fast, sensitive linear ion trap MSn with high-resolution, accurate-mass (HR/AM) Orbitrap™ technology, the research-proven Thermo Scientific LTQ Orbitrap XL system provides economical access to the power of hybrid ion trap-Orbitrap analysis. With outstanding mass accuracy, resolving power, high sensitivity and MSn capability, the LTQ Orbitrap XL™ instrument is the instrument of choice for confident, reliable detection, identification, and characterization. The standard higher-energy collisional dissociation (HCD) collision cell provides exceptional flexibility in fragmentation for advanced proteomics and small-molecule research. The optional electron transfer dissociation (ETD) generates complementary information for highly sensitive PTM analyses and de novo sequencing

ETD Key Features:

  • Electron transfer dissociation is a supremely useful tool for the analysis of post-translationally modified proteins. ETD capability can be added to many Thermo Scientific™ ion trap and Orbitrap™ mass spectrometers. Thermo Scientific™ Proteome Discoverer™ software includes unique capabilities to help users take full advantage of the information provided by ETD.
  • ETD preserves labile PTMs, allowing straightforward identification of the peptide sequence and the site of modification
  • For top-down analysis, ETD can be combined with proton transfer reaction (PTR) which dramatically simplifies spectra from intact proteins
  • For workflows that include low-mass isobaric mass tags, ETD can be combined with pulsed-Q dissociation (PQD) which eliminates the normal low-mass cutoff
  • ETD can be added to most Thermo Scientific LTQ-series ion trap and hybrid ion trap-Orbitrap mass spectrometers
  • Proteome Discoverer software includes the proprietary Z-Core database search algorithm specifically optimized for ETD spectra
  • Proteome Discoverer software can easily merge complementary CID and ETD results to maximize protein sequence coverage
