The Biology Department currently has two Mass Spectrometers:
- A q-Exactive High Field system (ThermoFisher Scientific) coupled to a nanoflow Easy LC (Thermo). The geometry of the new high-field Orbitrap combined with novel advanced signal processing and enhanced ion optics allows a four-fold increase in resolving power and faster scan speed. The system is able to double the amount of acquired data, which ultimately leads to increase protein identification and coverage.
- An LTQ Orbitrap Elite (ThemoFisher Scientific) and coupled to a NanoLC Ultra 2D Plus (Eksigent) for liquid chromatography. A 1260 Infinity Quaternary Pump VL (Agilent) for 2D liquid chromatographic separation for enhancing protein characterization is also available.
