Back to Equipment List Microanalytical High-Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer System
Description Features and Specifications:
  • Custom-built microanalytical capillary electrophoresis platform capable of analyzing 1-50 nL portion from <1 μL samples
  • Commercial micro-flow liquid chromatograph (Waters Acquity UPLC-I Class)
  • Custom-built CE micro-flow electrospray ionization source capable of efficiently ionizing molecules separated by CE
  • A quadrupole-time of flight high-resolution mass spectrometer (Impact HD, Bruker Daltonics) equipped with a collision-induced dissociation (CID) cell, enabling up to 40,000 FWHM spectral resolution
  • Capability for tandem mass spectrometry (MS2)
  • Comprehensive suite of metabolomics and proteomics software packages to process mass spectrometry datasets
Potential Applications:
  • Well-suited for metabolites, man-made compounds
  • Qualitative analysis to determine what types of molecules are present in the sample
  • Quantitative analysis to determine how much of the molecules are present in the sample
  • Multiplexing quantification for proteomics/peptidomics using tandem mass tags (TMT, Thermo Scientific) or Isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantitation (iTRAQ) reagents
