The Bruker Daltonics Ultraflex III is a Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption ionisation Time-of-Flight/Time-of-Flight ( MALDI-TOF/TOF) mass spectrometer, and uses smartbeam™ laser technology, with a repetition rate tunable from 1 to 200 Hz, and an adjustable focus size from 10 μm to 80 μm. The instrument can be operated in linear mode with mass range of 500k, at very high sensitivity to measure large molecules. If higher mass resolution and mass accuracy are required, the instrument can be operated in reflectron mode. MS/MS experiments in LIFT mode, or using in-source decay (ISD) processes. Typical experiments that can be carried out include rapid MALDI spot analysis, LC-MALDI analyses, and Tissue Imaging. In addition to the hardware we have several software packages for data analyses including, Flex Imaging and SCILs lab for Tissue Imaging data, WARP-LC, Biotools and Mascot for LC-MALDI proteomics data, and ClinProt Tools for clustering and modelling of large MALDI spot data sets.
