timsTOF fleX

The timsTOF fleX is a fully functional high speed, high sensitivity ESI instrument for all your X-Omics analyses with integrated MALDI source for fast MALDI Imaging
From 4D-OMICS to molecular imaging without stopping, changing, modifying or compromises

Dual source design to match PASEF® empowered LC-MS/MS identification with label-free spatial localization to decode the molecular make up of your sample

Built on the standard for shotgun proteomics, the timsTOF fleX combines best in class 4D X-Omics with Bruker’s cutting edge MALDI Imaging technology, including smartbeam 3D laser optics for fast measurement all in one platform. A dual source instrument ideal for SpatialOMx®, timsTOF fleX conducts robust ESI measurements and spatially resolves a wide range of molecules directly from tissue using one platform. No single instrument has before provided access to both essential capabilities for the most advanced OMICS researchers.

Bring a spatial dimension to X-Omics analyses

It has never been so easy to combine the regiospecificity of MALDI Imaging with in-depth X-Omics analyses. Applicable for examining a wide range of analytes, including metabolites, lipids or glycans, and seamlessly compatible with microscopy workflows, MALDI Imaging can identify regionally specific compound distributions for SpatialOMx® analyses. Cutting-edge instrumentation with a dual-source design paired with proofed high purity consumables for robust analyses and user-friendly software saves time and makes your research life easier. Use Bruker’s IntelliSlides for automated MALDI Imaging and SpatialOMx® workflows on the timsTOF fleX.
