An ion trap mass spectrometer serves as an ion store where gaseous ions can be contained as well as a mass spectrometer with a large mass range and variable mass resolution. The ion trap runs at 1 mTorr of helium, in contrast to other mass spectrometers that operate at pressures of 10-6 Torr.
The ion trap serves as a storage device and ‘electric-field test-tube’ for the confinement of gaseous ions that are positively or negatively charged. When the correct potentials are given to the ion trap electrodes, a trapping potential that is well formed results, which is what gives the ion trap it’s confining capacity.
The Global Ion Trap Mass Spectrometry Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Thermo Fisher Scientific introduced an ion trap mass spectrometer that is faster and more sensitive. The Velos Pro mass spectrometer widens the range of workflows that can be used with ion traps thanks to its superior quantitative performance, quicker scanning, Trap-Higher Energy Collision Dissociation (HCD), and increased resilience.
The Velos Pro ion trap is also available in combination with the market-leading Thermo Scientific Orbitrap technology as the Orbitrap Velos Pro and Orbitrap Elite hybrid mass spectrometers, extending its capabilities to include ultra-high resolution and accurate mass.
A leading qualitative instrument, the Thermo Scientific LTQ Velos ion trap mass spectrometer has long been acknowledged. They have greatly expanded the qualitative capabilities of the ion trap while also enhancing its quantitative performance with the introduction of the Velos Pro. They have the most adaptable and potent ion trap available because of this.
For quantitative proteomics applications, trap-HCD fragmentation opens up a novel, more affordable approach based on ion-trap technology. Trap-HCD can be utilised as a standalone ion trap to perform relative quantitation using isobarically labelled peptides, including applications requiring tandem mass tags (TMT).
This is possible since Trap-HCD produces high ion intensities at low masses. With Trap-HCD fragmentation, post-translational modification (PTM) detection and sequence coverage are both improved for qualitative proteomics.
