Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometer (LC-MS/MS)


Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometer (LC-MS/MS)
ThermoFisher Scientific
Ultimate 3000 UHPLC-VelosPro Orbitrap

The VelosPRO provides ultra-high resolution (maximum resolution > 100,000 at m/z 400) and accurate mass acquisitions (< 1 ppm RMS using internal calibration) for confident structural elucidation. Powered by Orbitrap technology, this high mass accuracy system increases the confidence of peptide identification in com­plex samples by minimizing false positive identification. This systems can perform collision induced dissociation (CID), high energy collisional dissociation (HCD) and electron transfer dissociations (ETD). In combination, these fragmentation modes provide extensive structural information for peptide identification and post-translational modification studies. Precise intact protein analysis, rapid quantitation of low level isobarically-labeled peptides and multiple fragmentation techniques can all be performed in this a single instrument.


Research Facility

Proteomics and Metabolomics Core Facility
Dalhousie University
Nova Scotia (NS)

The Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry Core Facility (PCF) forms part of Dalhousie's CORES(Centralized Operation of Research Equipment and Support) program. The laboratory is located in the Life Sciences Research Institute (LSRI) and offers a full range of proteomics/metabolomics mass spectrometry (MS) based analytical services to Dalhousie’s scientific community and external clients. The laboratory is run by experts with more than 20 years of experience in MS who provide technical expertise and one-on-one support. The experiments and results generated in the lab have contributed to a long list of peer-reviewed publications. Check the FAQs section for commonly asked questions regarding sample submission.
