Mass Spectrometry facility

Metabolomics and proteomics analysis

The aim of the Mass Spectrometry facility is to provide not just a service for routine metabolomics and proteomics analysis, but to work in collaboration with academics to develop project lead methods to suit individual needs. We welcome input from researchers within, and external to, the University of Exeter.

The technology

We have 6410 enhanced sensitivity triple quadrupole (QQQ) and 6520 accurate mass quadrupole time of flight (Q-TOF) mass spectrometers (Agilent Technologies). Both are interfaced with Agilent 1200 series HPLC stacks for online LC-MS and state-of-the-art high resolution HPLC-Chip technology for nanoLC-MS.
