Mass Spectrometry Bruker amaZon SL w/ Agilent 1290 Infinity UHPLC

This instrument has an ion trap designed for the highest ion storage capacities. The Dual Ion Funnel technology provides high sensitivity in the low fg range. There are two ion source options: ESI and APCI. The flexible APCI source also offers users with direct injection for analysis of solid samples. Bruker amaZon SL allows MSn (up to MS11) fragmentation, which can provide detail structural investigation of compounds. The fast scanning speeds up to 32,000 u/s deliver rapid duty cycles for both MS and MS/MS. The Agilent 1290 Infinity UHPLC permits users for LC-MS. Sample submission is encouraged unless users are familiar with the instrument you can bring your solvents and columns.

The instrument is located in 121F Dobo Hall.  Enquiries should be directed to Dr. Shu-Yu (Aaron) Liao.
