• Entering the digital age in MS: Introducing the MALDImini-1

MALDImini-1 - Entering the digital age of Mass Spectrometry!

The first-of-its-kind Digital Ion Trap MS

Shimadzu’s MALDImini-1 digital ion trap mass spectrometer fits in a space the size of a A3 piece of paper, allowing installation in places where mass spectrometers could not previously fit. It enables ion trapping up to 70,000 Da, and the MS/MS as well as the MS3 functionalities of the digital ion trap allows researchers to carry out comprehensive structural analyses with ease.

Key features:

  • "Minimum" footprint

    With its simple configuration and compact size, it is possible to install the MALDImini-1 in places where mass analysis devices could not previously be used. Through ingenious engineering and innovation its footprint has been reduced to the size of a piece of paper.

  • "Minimum" time

    Minuaturization allows rapid, "on-the-spot" analysis and simplifies data acquisition.

  • "Minimum" sample volume

    Comples structural analysis can be performed even with sub-μL sample volumes

The Technology Behind MALDImini-1:

Ion and laser optics steer the laser beam to hit the sample orthogonally to the plate, enabling high ion transmittance and a more compact layout. Following ionization, the beam is detected 90° to ensure maximum transfer of ions to the ion trap.
