High Performance Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (HPLC/MS)
The Agilent 6130 single quadrupole LC/MS system is the equipment used to analyse a wide range of organic geochemical components, including compounds that are thermally labile, exhibit high polarity or have a high molecular mass. The LC system consists of a degasser unit, a binary pump, a high performance well plate autosampler and a thermostatted column compartment. The single quadrupole MS system is equipped with an orthogonal multimode source providing electrospray ionization (ESI) and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI) that can be used either separately or simultaneously. The MS affords a mass range of 2-3000m/z with a mass accuracy of ± 0.13 u within the calibrated mass range in scan mode.
For more information about HPLC/MS see the NERC life sciences mass spectrometry facility.
