Materials Characterization

This class describes equipment that provides generic techniques to characterize samples, materials or specimens. The defining characteristic is that these items of equipment could equally be applied to a portion of the sample or specimen as to the whole.

Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is used to study the structure of molecules, the interaction of various molecules, the kinetics or dynamics of molecules and the composition of mixtures of biological or synthetic solutions or composites. The size of the molecules analyzed can range from a small organic molecule or metabolite, to a mid-sized peptide or a natural product, all the way up to proteins of several tens of kDa in molecular weight. NMR nuclear spectroscopy complements other structural and analytical techniques such as X-ray, crystallography and mass spectrometry.

4000 Q-Trap Liquid Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer
Applied Biosystems’ 4000 Q TRAP LCMS/MS System is a premier hybrid triple quadrupole/linear ion trap mass spectrometer. The unit combines true triple quadrupole scan modes with sensitive ion trap scans in a single LC/MS/MS run. With the 4000 Q Trap researchers can achieve results that previously required multiple analyses on multiple MS platforms. The 4000 Q TRAP is ideal for chemical structure elucidation including protein identification.

The Agilent 7650A ALS (Automatic Liquid Sample) provides reliable, fast, and precise injections for up to 50 samples on Agilent GC and GC/MS systems.

Next Sample Overlap:

Prepare to inject the next sample in the sequence before the GC goes ready; decreasing inject to inject time

Priority Samples:

Add samples, eliminating the need to stop the sequence when important samples arrives in the lab

Large Volume Injection Capability:

Inject up to 250 µL for flexible liquid injections
