Thermo Fisher Scientific Collaborates with TransMIT GmbH on a High-Performance Orbitrap Mass Spectrometry Imaging Platform


Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, and TransMIT GmbH Center for Mass Spectrometric Developments have announced a co-marketing agreement to promote the use of a mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) platform for spatial multi-omics applications in pharma and clinical labs.

As part of the relationship, TransMIT will combine its proprietary scanning microprobe matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (SMALDI) MSI and 3D-surface MSI technology with the exceptional high resolution accurate mass (HRAM) power of Thermo Scientific Orbitrap MS instrumentation. TransMIT’s AP-SMALDI5 AF ion source coupled with Orbitrap MS technology enables spatial distribution mapping of a variety of molecules such as biomarkers, metabolites, peptides or enzymatically-digested proteins by their molecular masses. This approach can be applied to omics applications such as metabolomics, lipidomics, proteomics, glycomics and to pharmaco-kinetic studies in a variety of tissues.
