Mass Spectrometry

High Resolution Mass Spectrometry Laboratory

The recently opened Waters-ABCRF High Resolution Mass Spectrometry Laboratory provides high resolution mass spectrometry services to the Analytical and Biological Research Facility (ABCRF), the Department of Chemistry, and associated internal and external users.  We have well established links with the chemical and pharmaceutical industry in the Munster region and educational institutions throughout the country.  The mass spectrometry group specialises in the characterisation of compounds within the mass ranges of 50-2000 Da.  Equipment includes two new mass spectrometers from Waters/Micromass: an LCT Premier Time Of Flight instrument and a Quattro Micro triple quadrupole instrument. Both instruments are set up for high throughput Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LCMS) and will prove to be a significant addition to the facilities at the ABCRF and the Chemistry Department.

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry

A recently installed Varian GC-MS system (CP-3800 GC coupled to Varian 2000 MS) is also available for automated and fast method development. This instrument is part of the Centre for Research into Atmospheric Chemistry (CRAC).
