Many agree that Center for Mass Spectrometry at Stevens is one of the most well-equipped academic facilities in the U.S. With six mass analyzers incorporating time-of-flight and quadrupolar techniques, and a variety of inlets such as electrospray, MALDI, ApCI, EI and CI, the Center undoubtedly lives up to the second-to-none motto of the Imperatore School. The center welcomes collaborative research projects from the Stevens community and as well as outside partners. Samples (.doc 31kb) can also be analyzed on a fee-for-service basis. Our instruments are amenable to a wide variety of organic compounds including proteins, peptides, amino acids, alkaloids, steroids, flavanoides, saccharides, lipids, nucleic acids, polymers, petroleum products, and organo-metallics. Our mass analyzers are based on time-of-flight and quadrupolar techniques. Some of our instruments are able to detect both positive and negative ions, carry out tandem mass spectrometry experiments, and provide accurate mass data.
