Bruker Introduces MALDI Tissuetyper™ Solution

Bruker Corporation announced the launch of the novel MALDI Tissuetypersolution, based on the newrapifleXMALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry system. The introduction of the revolutionary rapifleX as the new instrument platform for MALDI imaging anatomical pathology research further enhances Bruker’s leadership position for MALDI-TOF-based applications solutions. The new rapifleX system eliminates many previous bottlenecks in mass spectrometry imaging (MSI), with much improved speed, throughput, ease-of-use, robustness and spatial resolution. At the same time, MSI maintenance efforts are reduced to a minimum by a streamlined design of the ion source for maximum uptime and optimized accessibility. The new MALDI Tissuetyper solution based on the rapifleX instrument redefines the key performance measures for MALDI imaging and allows for completely new projects and measurement strategies. The rapifleX system offers by far the high laser repetition rate on the market, combined with the best MALDI imaging spatial resolution. The instrument has a removable, self-aligning ion source for high customer service convenience. The MALDI Tissuetyper solution works up to 20 times faster than traditional MALDI-TOF systems, using Bruker’s break-through, proprietary smartbeam™ 3D laser. The new scanning smartbeam 3D laser provides a fast moving laser-beam which is synchronized with the movement of the MALDI target stage. In combination with the game-changing laser repetition rate of 10 kHz, this architecture allows for real high throughput where MALDI imaging researchers have dramatically increased flexibility in pixel size or target tissue size. Depending on the sample size, typical tissue sections can now be imaged in approximately 30 minutes. Mass spectrometry images from small tissue biopsies are available within a few minutes.

Bruker Announces MALDI PharmaPulse High-Throughput Screening (HTS) Solution for Drug Discovery

Bruker announced a new high-throughput screening (HTS) solution designed to help pharmaceutical companies achieve high throughput, lower cost and higher specificity in drug discovery. The new MALDI PharmaPulse solution combines the speed, sensitivity and ease-of-use of Bruker’s robust MALDI-TOF systems with HTS robotics and automation software from HighRes Biosolutions Inc. The new MALDI PharmaPulse solution is the latest addition to Bruker’s portfolio of innovative products designed to assist pharmaceutical, biotech and CRO customers accelerate drug discovery and development. Based on the autoflex speed MALDI TOF system, and incorporating an integrated automation solution from HighRes Biosolutions, this new HTS solution offers the fast commercially available mass spectrometry-based screening solution with significantly lower cost per sample. In addition, its label-free detection of substrates accelerates assay development, reduces complexity of screening, and potentially minimizes artifacts from interferences with the labels used in traditional HTS technologies. The unique capabilities of the novel MALDI PharmaPulse solution for driving higher throughput at dramatically lower costs for screening in drug discovery, include: Less than 1 second per sample analysis time, comparable to the pulse of the human heart, and fast enough for true high throughput screening (HTS). autoflex speed MALDI TOF equipped with proprietary 2 kHz smartbeam -II laser. Integrated automation solution from HighRes Biosolutions seamlessly prepares and feeds MALDI plates from 96, 384 or 1536 assay plates. MALDI-detection removes need for SPE cartridges or LC columns, uses 100x less solvent per sample than conventional LC-MS methods. Does not require derivatization in comparison to fluorescence workflows. Development times for new assays and complexity is dramatically reduced without the need for chromatographic method development, SPE or MRM setup, or derivatization protocols. The extremely low sample volumes required for detection enables “Single Well Kinetic Readout” by sampling multiple time points per assay. The full automation, coupled with speed of MALDI TOF, enables the screening of over 50.000 compounds per day. Due to this unique feature set, the MALDI PharmaPulseenables pharmaceutical customers to accelerate their drug discovery efforts with higher throughput assays, delivering higher quality results while lowering costs.

Bruker Introduces Comprehensive Mycobacteria Library 3.0 for High-Performance MALDI Biotyper Mycobacteria Identification

Bruker announced a major version 3.0 expansion of the proven Mycobacteria Libraryfor research use only on the MALDI Biotyper microbial mass spectrometry system. The new Mycobacteria Library 3.0 now includes 149 different species for comprehensive species coverage, enabling significantly improved rapid and accurate identification of almost all described mycobacteriaspecies. Intra-species diversity is covered by hundreds of analyzed strains. Twenty-four laboratories from nine countries from all over the world provided well-characterized clinical mycobacteria strains, completing an already comprehensive set of isolates from strain collections. A recently published research study has shown that out of 1,045 mycobacteria samples, 94% could be identified on the species level with high confidence, and another 4.5% could be identified with lower confidence [1], using Mycobacteria Library 3.0. The genus Mycobacterium includes, as major groups, the important pathogens of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) and the non-tuberculous mycobacteria(NTM). Members of the latter group are increasingly the cause of opportunistic infections among immuno-compromised patients. This trend and the rise of antibiotic resistance in this genus require improved differentiation of mycobacteriaspecies. The identification of mycobacteria is one of the most challenging tasks of many microbiological research laboratories. For this purpose, Bruker has developed the optimized MycoEx™ preparation protocol, resulting in stream-lined and straightforward mycobacteria species identification, while ensuring the safety of technicians processing such samples. With the new MycoEx™ preparation protocol and the new Mycobacteria Library 3.0, the MALDI Biotyper has become an even more powerful research tool for the thorough characterization of mycobacteria.
