The Most Popular Mass Spectrometry Equipment from REUZEit


Mass spectrometry equipment, similarly to most other pieces of laboratory assets, is undeniably expensive. Amazingly, most laboratories end up throwing their units in a landfill once they break or slow down, rather than purchasing a perfectly functional, reconditioned unit for a fraction of the retail price. Read on for REUZEit’s most select pieces of mass spectrometry equipment, and browse the website to view our full array of reconditioned lab equipment. 

Q-TOF Tandem Mass Spectrometer

The Q-TOF is a water synapt spectrometer which combines a conventional quadrupole front end with an orthogonal time-of-flight final stage (TOF), offering both electrospray and nanoelectrospray ionization modes for a range of uses. It flaunts highly precise mass measurement capabilities to determine elemental composition and increase specificity to identify any unknowns. With its high full scan sensitivity, this piece of mass spectrometry equipment can be used for comparative metabolomic global profiling, which calls for the maximum amount of information available from a sample. Interested researchers can purchase the Q-TOF online for $11,000, or apply for financing for as low as $223.26 per month. 

Parker Balston Nitrogen Generation System

The Parker Balston Nitrogen Generation System is capable of converting compressed air into 95% to 99.5% pure nitrogen. It’s a fully engineered nitrogen generator with maximum ease-of-use; users simply connect a compressed air supply to the nitrogen generator inlet, connect the generator’s power supply to a nearby outlet, and the nitrogen purifying process is ready to start. This nitrogen generation system runs for $4,200 on the REUZEit website, though financing is available for U.S. buyers for as low as $89.39 per month. 

Premium Mass Spectrometry Equipment: Thermo Scientific LTQ Orbitrap Velos

For top-of-the-line mass spectrometry equipment, the LTQ Orbitrap Velos offers both pinpoint mass accuracy and ultra-high resolution via the Orbitrap mass analyzer. Thanks to the mass accuracy of this unit, the speed and condence of identification in complex samples is effectively increased by reducing false positive identification. Furthermore, the ultra-high resolution provides analytical certainty by enabling molecular weight determination for intact proteins, not to mention in-depth analyses of isobaric species. The LTQ Orbitrap Velos also has a new HCD cell with improved efficiency for better quantification of certain peptides, including applications which require Tandem Mass Tags (TMT). Lastly, the Electron Transfer Dissociation (ETD) produces insightful information to be used in sensitive PTM analyses. The unit currently runs for $45,995 on the REUZEit website, with financing available starting at $929.29 per month.
