Mass Spectrometry

Mass Spec Resources

The Mass Spectrometry Facility at Georgia State University is a research resource to provide modern instrumentations and expertise in the analysis of chemical and biological molecules with state-of-the-art mass spectrometers. The Facility operates five instruments including a Waters Micromass  Q-TOF micro (ESI-Q-TOF) with a Waters nanoAcquity UPLC- and an alliance HPLC, an ABI 4800 MALDI TOF-TOF analyzer (MALD TOF-TOF) , a Shimadzu QP5050A GC-EIMS , an ABI API 3200 (ESI(APCI)-Triple Quadruple) with an Agilent 1200 HPLC  and an Agilent 1100 series II LC-CE-MSD.


The Facility can usually perform routine low-resolution analysis by EI, CI, ESI, APCI and MALDI of small organic molecules and large biological molecules such as peptides, proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, oligosaccharides, polymers etc.  The Facility also routinely conducts exact mass and elemental composition determination, tandem (MS/MS) experiments and HPLC separations with MS detection as requested by researchers.
