Ultra-high performance liquid chromatograph coupled to tandem mass spectrometer with electrospray ionization Shimadzu LCMS 8040

We offer the possibility to perform qualitative and quantitative analyses for a wide range of polar and non-polar substances using different liquid chromatography modes (reversed-phase system and hydrophilic interaction chromatography) coupled to tandem mass spectrometry. The development of analytical methods is also possible. Application of a triple quadrupole allows fragmentation of analytes enabling analysis of their structures.
