MALDI-8030 EasyCare Benchtop MALDI-TOF

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments introduces its MALDI EasyCare solution that provides a convenient way for users of the MALDI-8000 Series TOF Mass Spectrometers to perform routine upkeep on the system. The MALDI EasyCare solution increases uptime and reduces costs because it enables operators to care for the system themselves without the need for service engineer maintenance calls.

Shimadzu’s MALDI EasyCare solution specifically addresses the challenge of MALDI-TOF ion optics contamination, which reduces instrument performance. With the MALDI EasyCare solution, operators can easily remove, clean and re-fit ion optics. The software wizard automatically tunes deflectors and the detector to optimize instrument performance.

Shimadzu benchtop MALDI instruments updated with the MALDI EasyCare solution retain the same class-leading performance as the previous models, ensuring an outstanding combination of mass resolution and sensitivity. Operators can easily upgrade EasyCare-ready versions of the MALDI-8020™ and the dual-polarity MALDI-8030™ through a software license activation.

The MALDI EasyCare solution is ideal for running high shot number applications like MALDI imaging and more challenging applications using samples that rapidly contaminate instrument optics. MALDI Easy Care instruments are designed to operate more consistently for longer periods of time, resulting in improved performance continuity.
