Open Access Instruments

Two mass spectrometers (GC/MS and LC/MS) are available for the IOCB staff and students to perform their own measurements. Please note that the instruments are also used for routine service analyses by the staff of the research-service team MS.

5975B MSD coupled to GC: The instrument is located in the room 1.88a (building A, ground floor). Instrument is accessible during working hours only at the moment. After installation of the ID card reader it will be accessible to authorized users 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The instrument is equipped with non-polar capillary column and EI-MS. There is a set of predefined methods which can be used for the most common analyses. A mass spectral library is available for identification of unknown compounds.
