Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer
A compact footprint without compromising on performance
The MALDI-8020 is the latest in a long line of MALDI-TOF products from Shimadzu. This benchtop, linear MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer delivers outstanding performance in a compact footprint, making it an ideal choice for today’s increasingly demanding laboratories.
- Linear mode (positive ion) MALDI-TOF
- 200 Hz solid-state laser, 355 nm
- Load-lock chamber for fast sample introduction
- UV laser-based source cleaning (patented)
- Small footprint/benchtop design
- Quiet operation (<55 dB)
Linear mode instruments have traditionally been the instruments of choice in MALDI-TOF-based quality control (QC) and profiling workflows, and the MALDI-8020 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.

MALDI Mass Spectrometry Imaging for the Masses: An Introduction to MALDI MSI
Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) began its development in 1997 with the publication of “Molecular Imaging of Biological Samples: Localization of Peptides and Proteins Using MALDI-TOF MS” by Richard Caprioli et al. in Analytical Chemistry. Over the past 25 years, there have been numerous developments in terms of samples preparation, matrix application, and instrumentation that have enabled increases in figures of merit related to MSI. Each improvement is accompanied by an increase in method complexity and price tag, while many users are seeking an entry-level instrument to perform simpler experiments that still produce spatially resolved mass data. To this end, we have tested a benchtop Shimadzu MALDI-8020 capable of MALDI MSI and employed simpler sample preparation techniques. As an introduction to MSI, we share the optimization of relevant parameters and matrices as well as the results of relevant imaging experiments.

Benchtop MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometer Featuring Integrated MegaDalton Ion Detection
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, in collaboration with CovalX Instruments Inc., introduces the OmegaTOF benchtop high mass matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometer. The OmegaTOF system couples Shimadzu’s benchtop MALDI-TOF instrument platform (MALDI-8020) with established technology for high mass detection from CovalX. The result is a user-friendly, compact platform that extends benchtop MALDI-TOF analysis to a mass range of 1.5 MegaDalton.
New Benchtop MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometer Features Dual-Polarity Ion Source
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments introduces the MALDI-8030 benchtop linear matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometer. Like its predecessor, innovative instrument design enables the MALDI-8030 to achieve performance specifications similar to those of larger, more expensive MALDI-TOF models in a significantly smaller footprint. This user-friendly compact instrument expands on the successful benchtop format of the MALDI-8020 by offering both positive-ion and negative-ion analysis.
