The mass spectrometry facility has three mass spectrometers available:
1. Bruker FTMS equipped with a 7.0 T magnet, and an Apollo II Dual ESI/MALDI source that can provide simultaneous operation in both modes.
The HPLC system is available to be coupled with ESI/APCI source for separation and analysis of complex mixtures.
MS/MS or MS/MS/MS fragmentation data provides a tremendous amount of information for analysis of unknown samples.
2. Bruker UltrafleXtreme MALDI-TOF/TOF is used for a variety of MALDI applications, including protein identification, peptide fingerprinting, polymer research, and structure identification for a wide spectrum synthetic and biological compounds.
3. Agilent 6890 GC equipped with 5973 MSD GC-MS system provides routine mass spectrometry analysis for our graduate and undergraduate students.
