Analytical Capabilities and Analyses

 

 

Analytical Capabilities:

Mass Spectrometry:

  • Agilent 6890 GC -6460 MS/MS :  analysis, identification, quantitation of volatiles (e.g., aroma compounds); targeted compounds
  • Agilent 1290 Infinity HPLC- 6460 MS/MS: analysis, identification, quantitation of nonvolatiles (e.g., polyphenols, vitamins, acids, sugars, etc.); targeted compounds
  • Agilent 1290 Infinity HPLC- 6500 Q/TOF: exact mass measurement of nonvolatiles; non-targeted analysis of “true” unknowns
  • Micromass triple quadrupole mass spectrometer: analysis, identification, quantitation of nonvolatiles (e.g., polyphenols, vitamins, acids, sugars, etc.); targeted compounds
