Sophisticated Analytical Instrumentation Facility, CIL and UCIM

Laboratory: Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry


The centre is equipped with a Waters Micromass Q-Tof Micro. This Instrument is hybrid quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometer equipped with electrospray ionization (ESI) and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APcI) sources having mass Range of 4000 amu in quadruple and 20000 amu in ToF.

It incorporate pre filter assembly to protect the main analyzer from contaminating deposits, and an orthogonal acceleration time of flight (TOF) mass spectrometer. A hexapole collision cell, between the two mass analyzers, is used to induce fragmentation to study the structural investigations while using instrument in MS/MS mode.

The LockSpray dual electrospray source enables exact mass measurement with an infused internal lockmass from a second sprayer. The Mass Spectrometer is coupled with Waters 2795 HPLC having quaternary pumping configured for flow rates from 0.05- 5.0 ml/Min. The auto sampler is configured with a 100 micro-litre syringe

The Q-Tof micro is used extensively in several application areas such as, metabolite profiling, proteomics, food safely as well as general analytical studies.

Sample Requirements
5-10 mg of sample in solid or liquid form.
