Introduction

The School of Chemical Sciences Mass Spectrometry Laboratory (MSL) provides a wide variety of chemical analysis using mass spectrometry techniques for organic and biological samples. The facility is located in Noyes lab with offices in rooms 35 and 37 and labs in rooms 41 (primary room), 21, 25, 42, 46, and 47.

The MSL is capable of performing analysis using many different ionization techniques including: low and high resolution electron impact (EI), low and high resolution chemical ionization (CI), low resolution field ionization (FI), low resolution field desorption (FD), low and high resolution fast atom bombardment (FAB), low and high resolution electrospray (ESI), low resolution matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI), MS/MS (ESI and MALDI), isotope ratio (FI), GC/MS (EI, CI, and FI), and LC/MS (ESI). Please feel free to consult us for analysis that are not found in this list. The mass spectrometers used to perform these analysis include three Waters 70-VSEGCT Premier, two Quattro Ultima, and Q-Tof Ultima; two AB Sciex Voyager-DE STR instruments; and a Bruker UltrafleXtreme. There are three Hewlett Packard capillary gas chromatographs attached to 70-VSE and GCT Premier instruments. There are HPLC systems attached to the Q-Tof and Quattro Ultima instruments. Self-users may use the Bruker UltrafleXtreme, the AB Sciex Voyager-DE STR, and the Waters ZMD.
