Equipment

Thermop DFS
Thermo DFS

 

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

Bruker timsTOF Pro
Bruker timsTOF Pro

High-resolution ion mobility QTOF UHPLC-MS(/MS) fitted optionally with electrospray ionization, atmospheric pressure chemical ionization, and atmospheric photoionization sources (ESI, APCI or APPI). This system with a resolution up to 70’000, a mass accuracy ≤ 2 ppm and an extended mass range (m/z 50-20'000) allows MS/MS experiments, calculation of the collision cross section of ions (CSS), and is on-line coupled to a Vanquish UHPLC system (up to 1500 bar).
Suited for structure elucidation and quantification of labile compounds in complex samples (e.g. polar compounds, metal complexes, biopolymers) biological extracts). Separation of ions with the same mass such as structural isomers is possible.
