AXIMA MALDI TOF-TOF Mass Spectrometer

An affordable, robust option for routine sample analysis performed manually or automatically, the AXIMA Confidence offers reliable mass information and MS/MS-derived structural detail. A linear mode enables outstanding levels of analysis of high-molecular weight samples while the reflectron mode, incorporating the patented curved-field reflectron, provides high resolution and mass accuracy.

  • Near-axis laser irradiation with a 50Hz variable repetition rate N2 laser
  • Patented improved curved field reflectron
  • Mass range 1-500kDa in linear mode; 1-80kDa in reflectron mode
  •  Mass resolution 5000 FWHM (ACTH 18-39) in linear mode; 15000 FWHM (ACTH 7-38) in reflectron mode
  • Sensitivity 500 amol (Glu-fibrinopeptide) in reflectron mode
  • Mass accuracy <10ppm in reflectron mode with internal calibration
  • Precursor ion resolution >200 FWHM
  • MS/MS capability
  • Integrated with robotic sample preparation devices


Launchpad software facilitates the seamless analysis of as few or as many samples as required and achieves the maximum result with minimal user input, making it ideal for novice and expert users alike. 

Application-centric data processing software packages are available in a variety of areas, including:

  • Proteomics – Easy-to-use, intuitive Intellimarque™ software is designed with the flexibility to adapt to user workflows: from a handful of samples to high-throughput, fully automated data generation, data-dependent peptide mass fingerprinting and MS/MS for protein identification
  • Synthetic Polymers – Unique PolymerAnalysis™ software provides useful structural information and statistics in a text report format
  • Oligonucleotides – OligoAnalysis™ offers fully automated QC analysis of large numbers of oligonucleotides or peptides
  • Biomarker Discovery–Tissue Imaging – Protein/peptide biomarkers, drugs and their metabolites can be rapidly screened directly from tissue sections and their location mapped and visualized using integrated software tools
