Dual-Polarity Benchtop Linear MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometer

Shimadzu MALDI-8030

Affordable Class-leading Workhorse

The MALDI-8030 is the latest in a long line of MALDI-TOF products from Shimadzu. Instrument performance specifications is extended from those of the MALDI-8020 to cater for compounds best suited to analysis in negative ion mode. This dual-polarity, benchtop linear MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer delivers outstanding performance in a compact footprint, making it an ideal choice for today’s increasingly demanding laboratories.

Key features:

- Dual mode (positive/negative ion) MALDI-TOF
- 200 Hz solid-state laser, 355 nm
- Load-lock chamber for fast sample introduction
- UV laser-based source cleaning (patented)
- Flexibility, Small footprint/benchtop design
- Quiet operation (<55 dB)

Best-in-class sensitivity and resolution

Dual mode instruments have traditionally been the instruments of choice in MALDI-TOF-based quality control (QC) and profiling workflows, and the MALDI-8030 is no exception. Peptides, proteins, polymers or oligonucleotides - the instrument is capable of delivering the performance required for QC applications. Research laboratories will also benefit from the MS capabilities of the instrument through the rapid mass-measurement of samples.

Sample target solutions
Compatible with the FlexiMass series of microscope slide-format sample targets, these slides provide researchers with options depending on their experimental workflow.

TrueClean automated source cleaning
To maintain instrument performance over time, the MALDI-8030 features wide-bore ion optics - a feature used on our existing MALDI-TOF products - which minimize the risk of source contamination over time, providing a robust platform.

Quality as standard
As mass spectrometry moves into clinical laboratories, the MALDI-8030 is the perfect choice for researchers developing MALDI-based diagnostic methods. The system is designed and manufactured to ISO 13485:2016 quality management standards and is CE compliant.
