HPLC—API 4000 QTRAPThe HPLC offers speed, resolution, sensitivity, accuracy, and precision enabling variable flow rates and pressures for the separation and analyses of a variety of compounds.The API 4000 QTrap offers exceptionally low detection limits enabling high sensitivity quantitation over a wide range of flow rates. With advanced scanning capabilities the API 4000 provides the highest sensitivity neutral loss and precursor ion scans. Enhanced multiply charged scan can be used in combinations to provide highly informative results.
GCMS with Gerstel MPS2 The MPS is a multifunctional autosampler and sample preparation robot for the GC/MS. The MPS provides modern analytical laboratories high throughput, high performance and unparalleled flexibility. Many techniques can be easily automated using the MPS, including solid phase micro extraction (SPME), dynamic headspace analysis and liquid sample preparation. The capillary flow technology of the GCMS system provides comprehensive multidimensional chromatography which provides a visualization of sample components for class determination.
FTIR The SensIR FTIR is utilized to analyze and identify solid and liquid substances. The extensive on-board spectral library allows for the rapid identification of these chemicals based upon their distinct molecular fingerprint resulting from their absorption and transmission of the IR radiation passed through them.
