The Autoflex is equipped with a MALDI (Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization) source. For masses below 5000 Da the instrument provides unit resolution when operated in the reflection mode. When operated in the linear mode the Autoflex has an upper mass range of 100 KDa. The instrument is capable of performing analysis of synthetic polymers, although the primary application of this instrument is to biomolecules (i.e. peptides, intact proteins, oligonucleotides, etc.). The Autoflex is a ToF-ToF instrument that is capable of performing MS/MS experiments.The Autoflex is an open access system. Users are granted access after receiving training.Ā To request access, training or to scheuled time on this instrument please visit our FOM website (https://fom.rice.edu/fom/).Ā Please contact Dr. Christopher Pennington (email@example.com) with any additional questions.
