The MALDI-8020 is the latest in a long line of MALDI-TOF products from Shimadzu. This benchtop, linear MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer delivers outstanding performance in a compact footprint, making it an ideal choice for today‚Äôs increasingly demanding laboratories. 
    Linear mode (positive ion) MALDI-TOF 
    200 Hz solid-state laser, 355 nm 
    Load-lock chamber for fast sample introduction 
    UV laser-based source cleaning (patented) 
    Small footprint/benchtop design 
    Quiet operation (<55 dB) 
Compatible with the FlexiMass™ series of microscope slide-format sample targets, these slides provide researchers with options depending on their experimental workflow.  
Ready-to-use, these disposable targets eliminate the need for cleaning and the risk of carryover. Alternatively, the reusable stainless steel FlexiMass™-SR sample targets provide a cost-effective, longer-term solution to sample preparation. 
Linear mode instruments have traditionally been the instruments of choice in MALDI-TOF-based quality control (QC) and profiling workflows, and the MALDI-8020 is no exception. Peptides, proteins, polymers or oligonucleotides - the instrument is capable of delivering the performance required for QC applications. Research laboratories will also benefit from the MS capabilities of the instrument through the rapid mass-measurement of samples.
