Mass Spec Rates
The CIF Mass Spec lab operates in two different service models:
Self service – Available to trained operators on open-access instruments. CIF staff will provide training and some initial methods development assistance. Please register online as ‘New User’ to sign up for training.
Full service – where instrument analysis is performed by CIF staff. This applies to our accurate mass time-of-flight LCMS instruments. Full service operation involves instrument setup, basic method development, sample analysis and raw data reporting.
