Samples should be supplied pre-digested unless otherwise arranged. Service can include protein molecular weight by MALDI-TOF or by ESI-TOF; peptide mass fingerprinting and de novo sequencing. The MALDI-TOF has MS/MS capabilities and this is by LIFT induced dissociation.
High Resolution Mass Spectrometry
Accurate masses up to 3000Da using ESI-TOF
Samples may be introduced as solution or through laser ablation.
Samples must be volatile and may need to be derivatized. Derivatization with acetate, methyl or trimethylsilyl groups can be carried out as part of the service.
