The Waters SYNAPT G2S high definition mass spectrometer (HDMS) is used for discovery and targeted -omic-based experiments. This HDMS platform provides accurate mass measurements, multiple tandem mass spectrometry workflows, and ion mobility separation of complex mixtures.
This instrument is equipped with:
- High definition hybrid quadupole/time-of-flight mass spectrometer
- Ion mobility for gas phase saparation
- Nano ESI, ESI, APCI probes
- Acquity H Class UPLC
- HDX UPLC
- 2D nano UPLC
The instrument is used for biomarker discovery -omic workflows, combining UPLC separations, high-resolution/accurate mass detection, tandem mass spectrometry, and ion mobility.
