This site is home to six mass spectrometers to provide a wide range of analytical capabilities.
Three Kratos/MSI MS-50 high resolution mass spectrometers. These double focussing magnetic sector instruments are used for both low and high resolution mass measurements. The instruments can be used for EI, CI and FAB experiments.
VG AutoSpec high resolution mass spectrometer. A magnetic sector instrument that can be used in conjunction with EI, CI, FAB, and ESI. In addition, the instrument is configured for tandem mass spectrometry utilizing an orthogonal time-of-flight (oa-TOF) mass spectrometer for MS-II.
VG Platform mass spectrometer. A quadrupole mass spectrometer dedicated to ESI analysis.
Bruker Bench TOF mass spectrometer. A time-of-flight mass spectrometer dedicated to MALDI analysis.
The University of Notre Dame Mass Spectrometry FacilityDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry
The Mass Spectrometry (MS) Facility, locate at Stephan Hall of Chemistry and Biochemistry, provides MS-related services, support and research to investigators within the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, The College of Science, and The Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory, a US Department of Energy research center on campus. Request for MS services are also taken from outside sources.
The MS Facility maintains a JEOL JMS-AX505HA and a Finnigan-MAT 8430 high resolution, magnetic sector mass spectrometers. Several modes of ionization are available to analyze a variety of sample types including volatile organics, inorganics, and biomolecules. In addition, GC-MS, LC-MS, and linked-scan experiments can be performed.
Supporting Research and Development
Experienced technical staff and state-of-the-art equipment make the mass spectrometry support facility at the Center for Advanced Food Technology (CAFT) a valuable resource for tackling some of the most complex and intriguing problems facing the food industry today. Located at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, the $2.5 million facility is designed primarily for university scientists, and is available to support researchers from the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The facility focuses on special research-oriented problems, and does not compete with work that can be accomplished at commercial locations.
The facility is uniquely equipped to tackle those challenging analytical tasks which demand the highest caliber equipment and expertise. Using the most precise instruments avialable in the field today, including high-field magnetic spectrometers capable of accurate mass measurements, the center's scientists and technicians explore the realm of biomolecules, including polypeptides and oligosaccharides.
The facility's equipment and technical expertise can be used, for instance, to help a company research the nature and quantity of foreigh compounds in samples that may be causing off-flavors, discoloration, or other irregularities.
For each application, the technical staff selects the appropriate instrument and technique to break down a given sample, and then analyzes the resulting data. Users receive detailed written reports describing both the procedure and the outcome.
The Established Facility Since 1985, CAFT's Mass Spectrometry Support Facility has tackled beyond-routine analyses for the federal Food and Drug Administration, the US Dept. of Agriculture, the NJ Dept. of Consumer Affairs, and more than 150 companies from NJ and across the nation.
Equipment housed at CAFT's Mass Spectrometry Support Facility include a VGZAB-T Tandem High-Resolution Mass Spectrometer, a four-sector tandem mass spectrometer equipped with a 40 KV cesium ion gun for liquid secondary ion mass spectrometry (LSIMS), has array detection for ultra-high sensitivity determinations. The instrument will determine the molecular weights and structures of many organic molecules including small proteins and other biomolecules. It will sequence molecules such as peptides and their adducts, and determine the structures of other intermediate molecular weight molecules using high-energy collisions to fragment the molecules of interest. This instrumentation is also equipped with direct probe capabilities including the capability to do exact mass calculations at high resolution.
Finnigan-MAT 8230 High-Resolution Magnetic Sector Mass Spectrometer, an ultra-high sensitivity system equipped for GC-MS, DCI and EI and CI high-resolution analyses. The instrument separates chemical compounds on the basis of boiling point and polarity and identifies them by mass up to 1,000 Daltons. Special short-path thermal desorption devices developed by Dr. Tom Hartman add significant scope to the analyses of impurities and components in foods, pharmaceuticals, and other matrices.
Liquid Chromatograph Spectrometer (VG Platform II) separates compounds on the basis of polarity and solubility rather than boiling point, making it ideal for nonvolatile and heat-sensitive compounds. The LC-MS also identifies compounds by its mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) up to m/z 3000. Two ionization techniques, electrospray and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization, allow the determination of a wide range of molecules, including peptides and proteins weighing up to 50 kilodaltons. A particle beam interface is available for obtaining EI-MS of non-volatiles.
Expert Management Dr. Thomas G. Hartman, an instrumentation specialist with expertise in mass spectrometry and othe analytical techniques is responsible for the mangement of the facility. The support facility is administered by Dr. Robert Rosen, a nationally recognized expert in mass spectrometry with special skills in separation science and identification techniques.

A purge and trap system is also available for use with the G-C-MS for aqueous solutions containing volatile samples; e.g., MS analysis of herbicides or pesticides in water samples.
Also available is elemental analysis using state of the art inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry. Several instruments are available including a Leeman Labs ICP2.5 and a Varian Instruments Liberty 220 ICP.
The facility provides services to researchers on SIUC campus as well as to private sector.
The facility is located on the third floor, in room 301 of the Neckers Building on SIUC's Carbondale campus.
