FT-ICR Mass Spectrometer

The FT-ICR mass spectrometer is an invaluable tool for complex mixture analysis- it provides the highest resolution and mass measurement accuracy available to any mass spectrometer. In fact, tens of thousands of individual molecular formulas can be elucidated, simultaneously, from a single sample.

Suitable sample/analysis types for FT-ICR include, for example:

  • Natural products
  • Petroleum and produced water characterization
  • Biofuels and feedstocks
  • Wastewater, ground water and contaminated soil
  • Foods and raw ingredients
  • Pesticides and pharmaceuticals
  • Metabololite analysis
  • Proteomic analyses/peptide sequencing
  • Plant extracts
  • Surface interrogation
  • Drug/substrate binding
  • Polymers
  • Other complex mixtures
