Mass Spectrometer

One of our many new instruments is a state-of-the-art ThermoFisher ESI-Orbi mass spectrometer, equipped with a Nanomate sample delivery system, which is capable of giving accurate mass of better than 4ppm (usually better than 2ppm), with very high resolution (100,000), and high sensitivity.

The advantage of this system is that there is no sample carry-over that plagues LC and GC mass spectrometry, as a new tip and a new injection port is utilised for every sample. This is very desirable for QC, for impurity identification, and for sample-limited compounds.

Other techniques are available: FT-IR, Raman, X-ray(powders/single crystal), ICP-MS, CHN, MS and Ion Mobility...to name but a few.
