“The Simpler and Faster Solution for Routine Biopharmaceutical Characterization”


The X500B QTOF is a new instrument and software solution that improves robustness and reliability, reduces complexity and streamlines analysis workflows so that everyone using the instrument can get expert results. It is the first true benchtop, high-resolution mass spectrometer purpose-built for biologics characterization. Combining intuitive and powerful new software tools with a robust, reliable, and compact instrument, the X500B system is specifically designed to make characterization tasks simpler and to get biotherapeutic characterization answers faster.

Speaker 2:  Ian Moore, Ph.D.

“Confident and Powerful MetID for all Your Therapeutic Molecules”


The SCIEX Biotransform Solution featuring the new MetabolitePilot 2.0 software is a powerful combination of hardware and software that will accelerate MetID by providing automated metabolite structure generation and a dedicated workflow for peptides and ADCs. Featuring SWATH data-independent acquisition on either the TripleTOF 6600 system or X500 QTOF system, the SCIEX Biotransform Solution ensures consistent and reproducible MS/MS are collected for all detectable species, resulting in reliable detection and identification from a single injection. With brand new workflows for peptides and ADCs and multiple peak finding strategies utilizing MS and MS/MS information MetabolitePilot 2.0 software is specifically designed to make MetID for these complex molecules simpler and easier.
