Sophisticated Analytical Instrumentation Facility, CIL and UCIM

Laboratory: Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry


The centre is equipped with Thermo Scientific TSQ 8000 Gas Chromatograph - Mass Spectrometer. The MS part consists of Triple Quadrupole, so MS/MS studies can be carried out. Using Selected Reaction Monitoring (SRM), It is possible to achieve the lower detection limits. This mass spectrometer comes paired with the TRACE 1300 GC along with Auto-sampler for automated sample handling. In addition to this, the presence of Head Space makes this instrument more versatile. Direct Insertion Probe enable us to analyses samples directly on MS.
