Bruker Daltonics MicrOTOF™ Spectrometer.
High resolution, electrospray ionisation-time-of-flight instrument.
Fisons VG Platform II; low resolution quadrupole instrument generally used for inorganic compounds.
ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry)
Agilent 8900 with a triple-quadrupole (QQQ)
Analysis of major, minor and trace elements in solution.
Solid samples can be digested for analysis. The triple-quadrupole function aids in the removal of spectral interferences for lower detection limits.
LA-ICP-MS (Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry)
Compact 193 nm excimer laser ablation system.
Used for analysis of solid samples. This system allows for high sensitivity and low fractionation.
HPLC-ICP-MS (High Performance Liquid Chromatography Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry)
Agilent 1200 HPLC
The HPLC system can be coupled with the ICP-MS.
Speciation of a variety of trace elements (e.g., Hg, As, Cr, etc.) can be performed using liquid chromatography (HPLC) as the sample introduction system.
GC-MS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry)
Hewlett Packard 6890 GC interfaced with a Hewlett Packard 5973 quadrupole Mass spectrometer.
Electron impact or chemical ionisation is available.
Agilent 7890B GC interfaced with a Agilent 7000D triple-quadrupole mass spectrometer.
PAL auto sampler system.
The PAL auto sampler allows liquid injection, headspace, and solid phase microextraction (SPME).
LC-MS (Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry)
The LC-MS couples a Dionex Ultimate 3000 HPLC with a photo diode array detector to a Bruker amaZon X mass spectrometer (ESI or APCI source).
Ideal for detailed characterisation of new chemical entities, metabolites, synthetic products and other small molecules. Very low amounts of sample can be analysed.
