The facility has five mass spectrometers with a number of sample introduction options, ionization sources and analyzer types to allow analysis over a large mass range from small molecules to large proteins. There are two LC/MSD instruments (Agilent) with the option of a quadrupole or ion trap analyzer and the ability to run in LC standalone mode with UV-VIS detection. A high resolution MS (Waters) and a MALDI (Applied Biosystems) have TOF analyzers providing high sensitivity and resolution.
Potential users of the facility are encouraged to meet with the operator prior to training to discuss the scope and nature of their work to determine the most appropriate instrument choice. Access to the lab is limited to 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday. More experienced users may request 24/7 access.
