Techniques & Instruments

Detection

For detection, both quantitative as qualitative (identification), we have different devices:Detection instruments

  • Rapid Evaporative Ionization MS with various ionization probes (e.g. iKnife) - Xevo G2-XS QToF Quadrupole (REIMS-QTOF)
  • LPG-3400XRS U-HPLC system coupled to HESI/APCI Q-Exactive Orbitrap-HRMS (hybrid high resolution accurate mass spectrometer) (U-HPLC-HRMS)
  • Accela U-HPLC system coupled to HESI/APCI Exactive Orbitrap-HRMS (high resolution accurate mass spectrometer) (U-HPLC-HRMS)
  • Accela U-HPLC system coupled to HESI/APCI TSQ Vantage (triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometer) (U-HPLC-MS/MS)
  • Accela U-HPLC system coupled to HESI/APCI LTQ XL linear ion trap mass spectrometer (U-HPLC-MSn)
  • Photodiode Array Detector (Accela PDA)
  • Evaporative Light Scattering Detector (ELSD 3300)

Extraction and clean-up

For extraction and clean-up of complex samples including food, feed, excreta urine, feces and blood (serum, plasma) we have a broad range of equipment and techniques:Extraction instruments

  • Dionex Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE350)
  • Solid Phase Extraction (SPE)
  • Liquid liquid extraction (LLE)
  • High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)-fractionation
  • Centrifuges
  • Vacuum dryers
  • Nitrogen evaporators
  • Shaker incubator
