TimsTOF flex (together with proteomics)
The timsTOF fleX can be used for untargeted metabolomics, lipidomics and proteomics. It has an integrated MALDI source for fast MALDI Imaging.
Sciex 6600 QTOF
Ultra-high pressure liquid chromatography coupled to a Q TOF mass spectrometer.
This spectrometer is designed to analyse a wide range of metabolites from lipids to amino acids in an untargeted fashion
Sciex 5500 QTrap
Ultra-high pressure liquid chromatography coupled to a triple quad/Q Trap mass spectrometer (UHPLC-QqQMS)
This spectrometer is designed to quantify a wide range of metabolites from lipids to amino acids in a targeted fashion
Agilent Single Quad Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer
This spectrometer is ideal for quantifying polar metabolites such as those in the TCA cycle and sugar derivatives.
This instrument has a sample preparation robot to automate the derivatization required to reduce the sample-to-sample variability.
LECO GC ToF MS Pegasus BT
Targeted and untargeted screening for a broad range of metabolites. Equipped with a Gerstel MPS dual head autosampler capable of adding standards or derivatizing agents to samples without manual intervention.
Andrew Allience pipetting robot
Automated liquid handling workstation for sample preparation.
