Laboratory of Mass Spectrometry


Measurement/collection of mass spectra for individual substances and mixtures thereof (after prior separation by appropriate technique). Identification of substances based on mass spectra. Quantitative analysis.



The Mass Spectrometry Laboratory is equipped with sets of apparatus enabling the measurement/collection of mass spectra for many types of substances; volatile, medium- and non-volatile.

In the case of samples suitable/dedicated for analysis by gas chromatography, it is possible to obtain mass spectra with resolution up to ~1000, depending on mass analyzer used, applying two modes of ionization: EI (electron impact) ionization or CI (chemical ionization).

For samples suitable for liquid chromatography analysis, spectrum measurement can be performed with standard resolution (~1000) and in high resolution mode (~20000) with ionization in ESI (electrospray ionization) and APCI (atmospheric pressure chemical ionization) mode.

The laboratory has the following equipment:

  • GC-MS Agilent 5877A
  • GC-MS/MS Shimadzu TQ8050
  • LC-MS/MS Agilent 1200 Series & Ultivo LC/TQ
  • LC-MS/MS Shimadzu Nexera X2
  • LC-MS/MS AB Sciex QTrap 4000
  • high-resolution system LC-QTOF-MS Agilent 1290 Infinity 6540 Q-TOF
  • high-resolution system LC-IM-QTOF-MS Agilent 6560


Terms of use/cooperation

Only trained users have independent access to spectrometers. Otherwise, staying in the laboratory is possible only in the presence of the operator. It is possible to perform and obtain only measurement data (only for a fee) or a complete interpretation of measurement data (for a fee or as part of scientific cooperation).
