Mass spectrometry facility
The Central Analytical Laboratory facility, located in room C1B90 in the JSC Biotechnology Building, currently houses seven mass spectrometers to provide structural information on various samples (from small organic molecules to large proteins). The facility is available to analyze samples from both University of Colorado and non-CU sources.
The following instruments are housed in the facility:
|Manufacturer||Model||Mass Analyzer||Ionization Methods|
|ABI||Voyager-DE™ STR||Time-of-Flight (ToF)||MALDI|
|ABI||QSTAR® Hybrid LC/MS/MS System||triple quadrupole / ToF||MALDI, ESI, nanospray, APCI|
|ABI||4000 Q TRAP® LC/MS/MS System||triple quadrupole / linear ion trap||ESI, nanospray|
|Thermo Finnigan||LCQ Deca LC/MSn||Ion Trap||ESI|
|Thermo Finnigan||LTQ LC/MSn||Ion Trap||ESI|
|Thermo Finnigan||LTQ Orbitrap||LTQ Ion Trap / Orbitrap||ESI|
|Thermo Finnigan||PolarisQ Ion Trap GC/MSn||Ion Trap||EI|
|Agilent||LC/MSD Trap||Ion Trap||ESI|
Our instruments are used to confirm the identity of various organic and inorganic compounds including liquid crystals, carboranes, proteins, peptides, oligonucleotides using both positive and negative ionization modes.
