Data Sheet 1

Here is just a simple example of an ABIRD on a Thermo LTQ-Orbitrap running nanospray at initial conditions (0.3ul min 0.1% formic acid, 2% B, New Objective Picofrit column) with the ABIRD OFF and then ON in both the Ion Trap (LTQ) and the Orbitrap.

So, that is almost a 20X drop in backrgound ion signal in the Ion Trap, and about 50X in the Orbitrap by using an ABIRD.

The KEY to this technology is that you get a RELIABLE background signal, across days, weeks, months of analyses.

ISOLATION from VARIATIONS in ambient laboratory air is the MAJOR BENEFIT of using an ABIRD device. EVERYBODY will benefit from this effect.

Once you get this level of S/N on a regular basis, you can then begin to further optimise your MS system to achieve greater total system performance in proteomics and metabalomics studies. Want to see how? Start by looking into the CPS!
