Streamlining sample prep, solvent extraction, and separations upstream of analytical measurements
preparation continues to be a burden for many analytical workflows. In today’s lab,
accelerated processing and time to result are crucial for screening large
numbers of samples from complex and multiplexed workflows. To address this ongoing
challenge, a growing number of technologies and new products are being designed
to target processes and speed sample preparation upstream of analysis.
The AccelerOme™ automated sample
prep for mass spectrometry was introduced this year and showcased at the
Accelerome is designed to minimize reaction times, costs, and sample variation
for complex preparations such as those involving label-free and tandem mass tag
(TMT) proteomic sample prep.
instrument is coupled with supplied reagents and kits, as well as on-screen
instructions, to support optimized, automated sample preparation.
Accelerome platform is designed to interface directly with the Thermo
Scientific Orbitrap™ mass spectrometer, creating a complete ecosystem of sample-to-result
for complex applications.
released this year, the EXTREVA™ ASE Accelerated Solvent Extractor enables
seamless extraction and sample preparation upstream of GC-MS or LC-MS analysis.
simple setup, high sample-to-sample reproducibility, and automated processing
are all attributes of the system.
include up to 50% less solvent consumption and reduced manual labor and
processing time, freeing operators up to focus on other important lab
to four extractions can be run simultaneously in an all-in-one automated
flow control optimization can be performed using up to six different solvents.
barcoding system tracks sample information and preparation parameters,
recording data on the instrument or through the Thermo Scientific Chromeleon™
Chromatography Data System (CDS) software.
In the clinical
realm, the MassSTAR system is a CE-validated, walkaway solution designed
for automating clinical LC-MS/MS sample preparation. The platform is compatible
with Chromsystems assays and enables a standardized CE-IVD conforming workflow
for clinical laboratories. The system will soon support IVDR clinical workflows
on the assay type, the system allows sample preparation of up to 288 samples
software and hardware solutions enable walkway operation
Graphical User Interface (GUI) permits simple sample handling and prevents errors
system supports full traceability and regulatory compliance in-line with CE-IVD
menu is continuously updated and currently includes: MassChrom® Vitamin D
assay, MassTox® Immunosuppressants panel, MassTox® TDM Series A assay panel,
solutions and the growing list of others are focused on streamlining sample
preparation and lowering the barriers of time, cost, and reproducibility that
traditionally challenge high-throughput analytical workflows. Strengthening the
processes and quality of sample prep will increase the overall value of analytical
output for a wide range of research and clinical applications.
