Since 1965, the Mass Spectrometry Facility (MSF) has provided top-quality mass spectrometry support to the faculty research groups of the Indiana University-Bloomington. The MSF is one of many technical support facilities in the Chemistry department. Its faculty advisor is Dr. David Clemmer. The laboratory is located in rooms A411 between Electronics Instrument Services and the Indiana University Molecular Structure Center.
The MSF has two full-time mass spectrometrists to assist students with designing experiments, recording data, and analyzing mass spectra. It is equipped with a Thermo MAT-95 high resolution magnetic sector mass spectrometer (EI, CI, ESI, and FAB sources) and a Waters LCT with LockSpray ESI source for accurate mass analyses. The MSF also has two Waters CapLC/LCT electrospray/time-of-flight mass spectrometers and an Agilent 1200/6310 ESI-quadrupole system for LC-MS analyses, a Bruker Biflex MALDI-TOF, and an Agilent 6890/5973 GC-MS available for walk-up use by IU researchers (after appropriate training). A complete description of its capabilities and fee structure can be found at its website.
