Mass Spectrometry Facility

The mass spectrometry facility is housed in a 1000 sq ft laboratory located in the UMSL Research Building (R003). In addition to the mass spectrometers described below, there are areas for data processing, instrument maintenance, parts storage and sample preparation.  The instrumentation is used primarily for support of research and teaching in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, however in years past the MS facility has been a resource for the local business or members of the academic community which lack this instrumentation..  For more information contact Mr. Joseph Kramer: Tel: (314) 516-5120; e-mail: kramerj@umsl.eduMass Spec Form

Joe at Maldi console

Joe Kramer at the Maldi Micro MX by Micromass/Waters.  This has a mass range >60,000 and resolution 50  µmass.

Bruker Maxis Plus (maXis HD) quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer and UHPLC.  It comes with Electrospray ionization, atmospheric pressure photoionization and a solids probe for ionizing solids directly. It can do m/delta m = 60,000 and collect up to 20 spectra per sec. (Available in Dr. Bythell’s Lab)
