The IT-ToF is equipped with both ESI (Electrospray Ionization) and APCI (Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization) sources. The IT-ToF is a hybrid ion trap-time of flight (ToF) mass spectrometer capable of performing MS/MS experiments and making accurate mass measurements (mass resolving power is ~ 10,000 @ m/z 1000).
The Rice Core Mass Spectrometry Facility is operated by the Shared Equipment Authority (SEA) and located on the 2nd floor of the BioScience Research Collaborative (BRC). The facility has instrumentation capable of analyzing a wide variety of compounds. The two Bruker MS systems (Autoflex & MicroToF) along with the Perkin Elmer ICP systems (Optima & Nexion) are available to trained users, on a walk up basis. Facility staff also analyze samples and contribute to projects on a fee for service and collaborative basis.
