The Oligonucleotide Calibration Standard allows calibration and testing of matrix-assisted laser desorption and ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometers (MALDI-TOF MS). It is designed for calibration of method parameter files of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometers in a low mass range between 4000 and 10000 Da. The standard contains three oligonucleotides (12-, 20- and 30-mer).
It is recommended to use this calibration standard in combination with 3-hydroxypicolinic acid (3-HPA) (Part. No. 8201224) as matrix.
The Oligonucleotide Calibration Standard is supplied in five tubes per package allowing 5x100 calibration spots.
The standard is for research use only. It is not for use in diagnostic procedures.
The tube box is shipped at ambient temperatures. It is recommended to store the standard on arrival at less than 0 °C.
