Open Access Bruker microTOF II
The microTOF is a time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometer with electrospray ionisation (ESI) source. The system is normally run as an open access system on which trained users can log in their samples on a hatch PC, place their sample in the autosampler, and receive an accurate mass spectrum by email within 3 minutes. The automated software can verify a target compound or give a list of possible formula matches to the main peaks by accurate mass.
The TOF detector gives mass accuracy of typically less than 5ppm with resolution of 12000 with a mass range of 50 to 4000Da in positive or negative ion mode. The ESI source is suitable for moderately polar to polar compounds.
