HPLC-Mass Spectrometry - ThermoFinnigan LCQ Advantage
High Performance Liquid Chromatography is for materials that are dissolved in some kind of solvent. HPLC can be used to separate very complex mixtures of non-volitile compounds into the individual components. When coupled with mass spectrometry, the identity of these compounds can be more easily determined. This technique is new to the Department with the above instrument being installed in January, 2003.
