UCL Chemistry Mass Spectrometry Facility

For further information on how we are keeping our researchers safe please see our Covid-19 Safety pages.

In summary the facility provides nominal and accurate mass measurements using EI, CI and ESI ionisation techniques,  LC-MS of small molecules and protein/antibody analyses,  GC-MS analyses with EI and CI ionisation, peptide finger printing, LC-MS/MS and MSn, GC-Selective Ion Monitoring (SIM) scans and LC-SIMs.

INSTRUMENTATION STATUS: All instrumentation are in the operation 

Mass spectrometry laboratory comprise of the state of art industry-leading instrumentations, available to use for staff and students. The laboratory is housed in LG11 in UCL Chemistry Building. The laboratory deals with more than 30,000 different types of samples per year. The staff of the laboratory develops new analytical techniques and methods and takes part in number of high impact research projects.  The laboratory also routinely performs nominal- or high resolution accurate- mass measurements. As part of sample submission process for these analyses, please complete our mass spectrometry submission form and attach a sample to it. The laboratory has two open-access instruments available for users after completion of the training session, which runs in the mass spectrometry laboratory.  

The laboratory is open weekdays from 8 am to 8 pm.
