The Ultimate Screening Machine
The Thermo Scientific Exactive Plus Orbitrap MS is a benchtop LC-MS system designed for high-performance, high-throughput screening, compound identification, and quantitative analysis. Thanks to its Orbitrap™ mass analyzer, the Exactive Plus™ system delivers high-resolution, accurate-mass (HR/AM) full-scan MS for fast, precise and reproducible results and tremendous analytical confidence. The continuous acquisition of HR/AM full-scan data allows retrospective data analysis for qualitative and quantitative analyses. Moreover, it vastly simplifies MS method development. The Exactive Plus mass spectrometer features fast scanning that makes it fully compatible with narrow UHPLC peaks. It also includes fast polarity switching, which can further streamline method development and increase sample throughput. All-ions fragmentation (AIF) with multiple dissociation techniques—in source collision-induced dissociation (CID) and higher energy collisional dissociation (HCD)—adds an additional dimension of information.
The Exactive Plus mass spectrometer is easy-to-use, cost effective to operate and, coupled with workflow-driven software, makes an ideal instrument for new users and users performing largely routine analyses.

Unique Features of the Exactive Plus EMR
The Exactive Plus EMR Orbitrap LC-MS is a benchtop full scan MS system designed for compound identification, high-throughput and high-performance screening and for qualitative and quantitative analysis. The Exactive Plus delivers high resolution accurate mass (HRAM) to provide fast, precise and reproducible results.
The availability of HRAM and full scan; all the data, all the time, allows retrospective data analysis for qualitative and quantitative applications. Moreover, it eliminates MS method development leading to improved and simplified analytical throughput in drug discovery laboratories.
Exactive Plus EMR is easy-to-use, cost effective to operate and coupled with workflow-driven software, makes an ideal instrument for new users in routine analytical laboratories.

Customer Testimonials on the Exactive Plus
“The advantages of a Exactive Plus is to screen and to quantify in one chromatographic run with exact masses, isotopic pattern and fragmentation information’s. The AIF experiments seem to be much more sensitive than with the Exactive”
– Dr. Thorsten Bernsmann, Chemisches Landes- und Staatliches Veterinäruntersuchungsamt Münster (CVUA), Germany
“Benefit of Exactive Plus (HR full scan) versus SRM in Triple Quad MS are a 'full' picture of the sample and Quan/Qual analyses”
– Dr. Bertrand Rochat, Le Centre hospitalier universitaire vaudois (CHUV), Switzerland
