Section II: Object

II.1)Scope of the procurement
II.1.1)Title:

Aquisition of a timsTOF Pro MS System

II.1.2)Main CPV code
38433100
II.1.3)Type of contract
Supplies
II.1.4)Short description:

The timsTOF Pro system comes with a dual-TIMS (trapped ion mobility spectrometry) analyzer optimized for high-speed MS — analysis of metabolites. Its unique geometry allows incoming ions to be accumulated in parallel in the first section, and for ions to be released dependent on their mobility from the second section of the dual-TIMS analyzer.

II.1.6)Information about lots
This contract is divided into lots: no
II.1.7)Total value of the procurement (excluding VAT)
Value excluding VAT: 4 000 000.00 DKK

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The timsTOF Pro system comes with a dual-TIMS (trapped ion mobility spectrometry) analyzer optimized for high-speed MS — analysis of metabolites. Its unique geometry allows incoming ions to be accumulated in parallel in the first section, and for ions to be released dependent on their mobility from the second section of the dual-TIMS analyzer. This result in nearly 100 % duty cycle, making this parallel accumulation serial fragmentation technique (PASEF) perfectly suited for LC-MS analysis of complex metabolomics samples by measurements in both MS and PASEF mode. Professor Matthias Mann, at NovoNordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research has since 2 years evaluated the instrument for shot-gun proteomics analysis, and recently also for metabolomics analysis. By using the same type of instrument the 2 centers can share both knowledge and methodology.

The timsTOF from Bruker is the only instrument in the market that has both TIMS technology and allowing PASEF acquisition. The instrument will be used at the newly started metabolomics platform at CBMR.

The timsTOF Pro comes with the Trapped ion mobility, which allows Parallel Accumulation Serial Fragmentation (PASEF) acquisition method to provide extremely high speed and sensitivity to reach new depths in metabolomics and shot-gun proteomics. Bruker is the only provider for such instrument. This technology is highly relevant for metabolomics analysis, both for identification of metabolites in complex mixtures, and high throughput analysis of larger sample sets (cohorts).
