Overview

The Centre for Mass Spectrometry was founded 2002 as is a central service unit of the chemical oriented institutes and is located in the Institute of Organic Chemistry.

The centre hosts several MS types (QTof, Tof, Quadrupol, Triplequad), inlet types (UPLC, HPLC, GC, direct inlet) and ionization methods (EI, CI, APCI, ESI) in modern laboratories.

Mass spectrometers and sample submission

The Centre for Mass Spectrometry hosts for mass spectrometers, which were bought and sustained by the members:

  •  HR UPLC-MS/MS: Waters QTof Premier (ESI- und APCI-MS/MS) with UPLC (Waters Acquity incl. TUV detector, built 2007)
  • HR HPLC-MS: Mircomass LCTPremier (ESI) with HPLC (Waters Alliance 2695, built 2004)
  • Direct inlet HR-EI-MS: Micromass GCT (built 2002)
  • GC-MS: Agilent 7890 + HP 5977B MSD (built 2019)

In addition, nine MS instruments (five analytical ESI-LC/MS (triple-quad, Tof, IMS-QTof, Orbitrap), one semi preparative ESI-LC-MS, two preparative ESI-LC-MS, one HR GC-MS and one MALDI-Tof) owned by the members were supported by the centre for mass spectrometry.
