LCMS 2020

Shimadzu LC-MS 2020

Summary

The Shimadzu LCMS 2020 is a single quadrupole mass spectrometer with an upper mass limit of 2000 dalton. The LC system includes a dual wavelength UV-Vis detector between the pumps and the mass spectrometer. Sample solutions are normally introduced via a loop injection, either manually, or by use of the autosampler. Flow rates from few microliters to a ml per minute can be used. The system includes a DUIS source, allowing ESI, APCI, or mixed APCI-ESI, and can be operated in either positive ion or negative ion mode.  The system can be used in the following configurations:

HPLC/UV-Vis
HPLC/MS (ESI,APCI, mixed)
HPLC/UV-Vis/MS (ESI,APCI, mixed)

This is a student operated instrument, located in 1238 Hach Hall. Before training, students are required to read through the training manual.  Enquiries should be directed to Dr. Kamel Harrata.  Phone 515-294-4392 (office), 515-294-5544 (lab).
