Analytical Lab

Cape Breton University, Sydney, Nova Scotia
What the facility does

Qualitative and quantitative analysis of chemical compounds using UPLC-MSMS

Area(s) of Expertise

Our facility can analyze – qualitatively and quantitatively – any complex mixture.  Our UltraPerformance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC) instrumentation allows us to  separate compounds effectively. They can then be analyzed (elemental composition) using tandem mass spectrometry (MSMS) for m/z up to 2000 and with a photo-array detector (PAD), with no mass limit.
