Department of Chemistry



Mass Spectrometry Service


Dr Dijana Matak-Vinkovic, Paul Skelton and Asha Boodhun would like to welcome you to the Department of Chemistry Mass Spectrometry section. We currently have 9 mass spectrometers ranging from simple single quad systems to the latest ion mobility qtof. We accept samples for mass spectrometry analysis and provide training to selected department researchers to operate some of the mass spectrometers.
