FULL MS  and MS/MS SERVICE


Instrument time refers to the laser time and the instrument operation time.

Sample preparation time includes sample spotting, de-salting, extra data interpretation etc.

Users who perform their own sample spotting and data analysis pay only for the intrument time.

 

Examples

MS analysis:

up to 5-8 samples (depending on sample purity and concentration):

       0.5hr for instrument calibration and sample analysis

       0.5hr for sample spotting

MSMS analysis:

1 minute to perform MS/MS scan of 1-2 precursors

(5 samples x 2 trials x 5 precursors each = 50 - 100 minutes)

Calibration of MSMS mode requires 1 hr.

 




MALDI MASS SPECTROMETRIC IMAGING



The scanning time includes profiling prior to setting up the imaging experiment and image acquisition. Instrument calibration is mandatory and charged as 0.5 h instrument time.

Tools for matrix application by spraying are available.  For more details, please, contact Facility manager.




Additional notes

* For the first time internal users, a complimentary MS analysis of two samples is available.

* For a high volume of samples, a discount is available.  Please, contact the Facility manager.
