The marketing landscape for massspectrometry (MS) instruments has been described elsewhere (1). There is no slowing down of new MS introductions this year as manufacturers continued to upgrade their product offerings in high-resolution, hybrid, and tribrid MS—such as time-of-flight (TOF), quadrupole-TOF (Q-TOF), and orbital trap systems. Also, there are more offerings in compact MS instruments with unit resolution such as single-quadrupole (SQ), triple-quadrupole (TQ), and ion mobility MS (IMS) (1,3). There are also newer startup companies focusing on unique application systems such as analyzers for fermentation media or solid-sampling.
Exum Instruments Massbox
Exum introduced the new Massbox,which couples a TOF MS instrument with a mass range of 1000 to 14,000 with an innovative laser ablation ionization system for solid sampling.
Exum builds instruments and software ecosystems to increase the speed of development and discovery, offering easy access to high-performance at a low-cost.
