Mass spectrometry

Equipment Type: Mass Spectrometer

Mass spectrometry is an analytical tool used for measuring the molecular mass of a sample. Mass spectrometers are used in industry and academia for both routine and research purposes. The major mass spectrometric applications:

Biotechnology: the analysis of proteins, peptides, oligonucleotides
Pharmaceutical: drug discovery, combinatorial chemistry, pharmacokinetics, drug metabolism
Clinical: neonatal screening, haemoglobin analysis, drug testing
Environmental: PAHs, PCBs, water quality, food contamination
Geological: oil composition

Specific equipment within the Centre for Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology:

Ettan Probe Maldi-Tof

Waters Quattro LC Mass Spectrometer, with electrospray interface
