The Orbitrap Fusion Lumos includes an exclusive Tribrid design incorporating 3 different mass analysers (a quadrupole, an ion trap and an Orbitrap), enabling a large number of different experiments to be performed with a single mass spectrometer. Software developments have also simplified the set-up of complex experiments.
Other significant technological advances including a brighter ion source and improved vacuum/pumping. Additional enhancements of the Lumos include greater scan speed, high mass resolving power, sensitivity and an improved ETD capability and EThcD fragmentation. These attributes make available a versatile system that makes detection of very low abundance proteins and lipids easier and more reproducible.
