Short Description

This mass spectrometer is used for the characterization of intact proteins. The Q-TOF Synapt G2 (Waters) employs a quadrupole for the selection of precursor ions, a second quadrupole for fragmention and a time-of-flight tube for the mass analysis. The instrument is coupled to a chromatography system using a microscale C4 column, which allows chromatographic separation of proteins before being ionized in a microspray source and entering the MS.
The instrument is equipped with a high-efficiency T-Wave ion mobility technology, which gives access to an additional dimension of separation, based on molecular size and shape. As Ion mobility experiments are time consuming and challenging, they are offered as individual projects. The acquisition and operation of this instrument is a joint initiative with the MPL mass spectrometry facility.
