The Orbitrap IQ-X Tribrid mass spectrometer is the cutting edge of small molecule (metabolites. Drugs, lipids etc.) analysis. It is characterized by a Tribrid architecture combining quadrupole, ion trap, and ultra-high-resolution Orbitrap mass analyzer technologies for acquisition. All fragmentation techniques are available including MSn on Orbitrap mass analyzer. It allows different scanning modalities such as Full scan, MRM, DIA, DDA and real-time compound annotation.

The Orbitrap Tribrid IQ-X mass spectrometer offers a streamlined approach to achieve comprehensive metabolome coverage with confident compound annotation through comparison against spectral libraries or by de novo structural elucidation of unknown metabolites. It is used for a variety of applications including biomarker discovery, de-novo compound identification from biological specimens, spatial metabolomics and low abundance quantitation.
