MALDI Matrices


CovaChem produces some of the highest quality MALDI Matrices in the life sciences industry. CovaChem has decades of experience with Mass Spectrometry and purification of MALDI matrices for optimal performance and maximizing detection limits for your MALDI-MS instrument. We carry the most commonly used MALDI matrices, as well as a few others in a form that is unrivaled in purity and interfering contaminant removal.

CovaChem is a leader in the area of mass spectrometry of crosslinked proteins and peptides. The purified matrices produced by CovaChem is a multi-step process, which leads to a better quality matrix that has shown to provide exceptional sensitivity and maximum signal to noise.

Let CovaChem become your partner in new discoveries!

  • CHCA MALDI Matrix

    CovaChem's CHCA (α-Cyano-4-hydroxycinnamic acid) is ideally suited for MALDI-MS applications. CHCA is generally the preferred matrix for obtaining MALDI-MS spectra of protein digests or other peptides with masses below 4,000 daltons. This high purity MALDI matrix is refined through multiple recrystallizations and other purification processes. CHCA for MALDI-MS is one of CovaChem's signature products.

    Package Sizes: 24x1 mg tubes, 5x10 mg, 100 mg and 1 gram

    Product Numbers: 15101-24x1, 15101-5x10, 15101-100, 15101-1

    Product Name: CHCA MALDI Matrix
