Mass Spectrometry

The Mass Spectrometry Lab performs quantitative and qualitative analysis of organic molecules. Services include LC-MS and GC-MS, providing the ability to identify a wide range of compounds. 

Facilities include:

  • Thermo Scientific Dionex Ultimate 3000 Ultra High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) coupled to a High resolution Bruker compact QqTOF mass spectrometer
  • Single quadrupole Finnegan LXQ Mass Spectrometer coupled to Finnegan Surveyor Liquid Chromatography
  • Leco Pegasus 4D GC X GC TOFMS 

Laboratory capabilities: synthesized organic compounds, complexes, plant and human metabolites, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, hydrocarbons, peptides and proteins, biological samples including fatty acids, archaeological samples, dyes and essential oils.

These instruments provide staff, students and other users with a valuable service that allows analysis of a broad range of samples.
