Equipment

Thermo

 

Two sector field high-resolution mass analyzer (HR-MS) equipped with an electron- (EI), chemical-ionization (CI) source, direct chemical ionization (DCI), gas chromatograph (GC), and autosampler incl. headspace sampling, and automatic derivatization.
Suited for the analysis of small molecules with low polarity that can be evaporated without decomposition.

Bruker

High-resolution QTOF instrument fitted optionally with electrospray- (ESI) atmospheric pressure chemical ionization- (APCI), and on-line nano-ESI ion sources. This system is on-line coupled to a Waters AcquityUPLC, allows MS/MS experiments, and measurements in an extended mass range (m/z 20'000).
Suited for investigation of complex and labile samples (e.g. metal complexes), mid-polar to polar small and large molecules, biopolymers and biological extracts.

Bruker EsquireLC

Ion trap HPLC-MS instrument fitted with an electrospray- (ESI) and atmospheric chemical ion source (APCI), as well as an on- and off-line nano-ESI ion source. This system is on-line coupled to an Agilent 1100 HPLC, allows MS/MS experiments up to MS10 (10th fragment ion generation), and detection in an extended mass range (m/z 500-6000).
Suited for investigation of labile samples (e.g. metal complexes), biopolymers and biological extracts.

Bruker

Maldi-TOF instrument fitted with disposable Prespotted AnchorChip (PAC), stainless steel, or nanostructured laser desorption (Naldi®) targets. An thin-layer chromatography plate adapter for direct TLC-Maldi analysis is also available.
Suited for the analysis of polyaromatic hydrocarbones, dendrimers, peptides, proteins, polymer, and metal complexes of higher MR.
