To remain competitive against other technologies, mass spectrometry (MS) needs to rise to the challenge of unprecedented throughput with very deep analyses of very complex samples. With analysis time reduced to several minutes by fast liquid separations, confident identification and quantitation over many orders of dynamic range still requires a generational leap in the sequencing performance of MS. The Thermo Scientific™ Astral™ analyzer is a novel class of high-resolution accurate-mass analyzer that compliments the Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap™ analyzer to provide high speed and sensitivity measurements.

This webinar will explore the underlying technology of the Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap™ Astral™ mass spectrometer and its’ application to biomedical research. Rethink what is possible with a mass spectrometer including the analysis of 300 proteomics samples per day, measuring 5,000 proteins from a true single-cell, and collecting fragmentation data on over 90% of compounds in metabolomics experiments.
