The orbitrap mass analyzer is fast becoming a unique and powerful addition to the scientific toolbox for probing biological systems and increasing selectivity and confidence of routine analyses. The key attributes of this analyzer are accurate mass and high resolution similar to those achievable with FTICR instrumentation. The principles of operation underlying these capabilities are discussed, and a concise overview of application areas that have already benefited from the introduction of this technology is provided.
