The mass spectrometry center operates as a service center providing accessibility to the center�s mass spectrometers for all science departments. Training on the instruments is required before access is granted. Participants of the center include faculty, graduate students and qualified undergraduate students. Qualified undergraduate students are those working in research laboratories or enrolled in courses that utilize this instrumentation.

List of routine services:

  • Molecular mass determination of small molecules (< 3 ppm)
  • Confirmation of reaction products
  • Analysis of synthetic compounds (organic and inorganic), polymers and biomolecules (intact proteins (<20 KDa), and peptides)
  • Ionization methods: ESI (+/-), nano-ESI (+/-) APCI/APPI (+/-), EI (+), CI (+)
  • Mixture analysis by LC-MS and GC-MS
