The Bioanalytics facility houses a range of state-of-the-art chromatography and mass spectrometry instrumentation. The facility is available for use by staff and students from across the university, as well as offering a consultancy service for external clients.
Location: Biosciences Room 2009
The Sciex 6500 is a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer which doubles as a linear ion trap. It is coupled to a Shimadzu Nexera binary UHPLC with a photodiode array detector. An optional Acquity M-Class nano-UPLC is also available. Scan types include Multiple-reaction monitoring (MRM), which offers increased selectivity and sensitivity, perfect for quantitative analysis.
This LC-MS is good for: Targeted quantitative and semi-quantitative analysis, with enhanced scan modes offering additional qualitative information.
