Mass Spectrometry Facility

The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology operates a mass spectrometry (MS) facility to provide top-quality MS support for students and researchers. We currently specialize in walk-up MS analysis for GC-MS and LC-MS to provide hands-on MS instrumentation training. Instruments currently available for walk-up use include:

  • an Agilent 6890-5973 GC-MS;
  • an Agilent 7890-5975 GC-FID/GC-MS;
  • an Agilent 1100-6130A LC-MS with ESI; and,
  • an Agilent 1100-6130B LC-MS with ESI and APCI capabilities.

This facility also contains an Agilent 1200SL-6410 rapid resolution LC-Triple Quad MS with sensitivity upgrade and an Agilent 1200-6520 capillary LC-Q-TOF MS. These two instruments were obtained through a National Science Foundation grant to support multiple research efforts at IUPUI. While they are not currently available for walk-up use, arrangements can be made for sample analysis by staff, or researcher training for larger projects if instrument time is available. The facility also contains a SpectrumMill MS proteomics workbench, Bioconfirm, Mass Profiler, Mass profiler Professional and a METLIN database for data analysis.
