The Central Analytical Laboratory facility, located in room C1B90 in the JSC Biotechnology Building, currently houses several Waters UPLCs and seven mass spectrometers to provide structural information on various samples (from small organic molecules to large proteins). The facility is available to analyze samples from both University of Colorado and non-CU sources.

The following instruments are housed in the facility:

Manufacturer Model Mass Analyzer Ionization Methods
ABI 4000 Q TRAPĀ® LC/MS/MS System Triple quadrupole/Linear Ion Trap ESI, nanospray
Agilent 6120 LCMS Single quadrupole ESI
Thermo Finnigan LTQ Orbitrap Velos LTQ Dual-Ion Trap/Orbitrap ESI, nanospray
Thermo Finnigan LTQ Orbitrap LTQ Ion Trap/Orbitrap ESI, nanospray
Thermo Finnigan ISQ GCMS Single Quadrupole EI
Waters Synapt G2 HDMS Quadrupole/ToF ESI

Our instruments are used to confirm the identity of various organic and inorganic compounds including liquid crystals, carboranes, proteins, peptides, oligonucleotides using both positive and negative ionization modes.
