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

The following instruments are housed in the facility:

Manufacturer Model Mass Analyzer Ionization Methods
Thermo Obirtrap Q-Exactive HF-X Orbitrap ESI, nanospray
Thermo LTQ Orbitrap Velos LTQ Dual-Ion Trap/Orbitrap ESI, nanospray
Thermo 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.
