High performance liquid chromatography mass spectrometry is an extremely versatile technique that may be applied in the routine analysis of a wide range of samples. The HPLC-MS is new service that been recently acquired by the Centre/Department. The instrument available is a ThermoElectron Corporation Finnigan LXQ equipped with a Surveyor Autosampler and a PDA detector. Samples for this analytical service may be submitted as solids (with indication of suitable solvent) or as solutions with pre-defined composition.
Further information regarding preliminary studies of samples, conditions for the preparation and submission of samples or details of characterisation, should be solicited from Drª Natércia Nunes. The exact cost of analysis and probable date of completion will be indicated after the conditions of characterisation are established. All samples must be accompanied by an <analysis request form> downloaded from this page.
