The Waters Micromass Q-Tof micro Mass Spectrometer
The Micromass Q-Tof micro mass spectrometer coupled with Waters 2695 HPLC can provide both routine structural elucidation of small molecules and biomacromolecules as well as exact mass measurements with both Electrospray Ionization (ESI) and Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization (APCI) techniques. The instrument also features a quadruple mass filter and collision cell for MS/MS analyses and is equipped with a Waters Alliance HPLC and an nanoAcquity UPLC for separation.

API 3200 LC/MS/MS System

API 3200 LC/MS/MS System
The API 3200 LC/MS/MS system is a triple quadruple mass spectrometer coupled with an Agilent 1200 series HPLC and UV-DAD used ideally for qualitative and quantitative analysis of chemical and biological molecules (M/Z < 1800 Da).
