Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Elite™ Hybrid Ion Trap-Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer


Orbitrap Elite™ Hybrid Ion Trap-Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer

Analyze demanding proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics and metabolism samples in greater depth using the Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap Elite™ Hybrid Ion Trap-Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer. This instrument combines a high-field Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap ™ mass analyzer and Thermo Scientific™ Velos Pro™ ion trap technology to deliver very high resolution, speed, sensitivity and complementary fragmentation information.


  • Very high resolving power—up to 240,000 FWHM—facilitates analysis of low-abundance components in complex samples and resolves isobaric species and isotope fine structures with confidence     
  • Ion optics with novel neutral-blocking technology and an advanced detection system increase system robustness and quantification capabilities     
  • Advanced signal processing combined with fast scanning ensures UHPLC compatibility     
  • Multiple fragmentation techniques—CID, HCD and optionally ETD—provide versatility and complementary data     
  • Innovative pre-amplifier electronics improve sensitivity     
  • Parallel MS and MSn capability speeds analyses     
    Comprehensive Proteomics Analyses     
  • Very high resolution and complementary fragmentation modes facilitate top-down protein identification and characterization     
  • ETD option preserves labile side chains while fragmenting the peptide backbone for improved analysis of PTMs     
  • Fast scanning combined with high resolution and high spectral quality yields more protein identifications in a single analysis     
  • Very high resolution and selectivity in both full-scan MS and MSn modes enhance relative quantification results from stable isotope labeling or isobaric mass tagging experiments     
    Productive Metabolism and Metabolomics Research     
  • Very high resolution distinguishes components in complex matrices     
  • Sensitivity ensures detection of more metabolites     
  • High-quality MSn spectral trees provide extensive structural information for metabolite identification and the location of modification sites     
  • Improved robustness lowers maintenance, enabling 24/7 operation when running complex biological matrices     
    Application-Specific Software     
  • Thermo Scientific™ Mass Frontier™, MetWorks™, ProSightPC, ProteinCenter™, Proteome Discoverer™ and SIEVE™ software as well as PEAKS™ software are all available to increase productivity for specific tasks or applications.
