The Department of Plant Physiology operates two GC-MS platforms, both with Time-of-Flight mass spectrometers. One serves for high-throughput analyses with nominal mass and the other for accurate mass determination.
We routinely measure
- volatile terpenoids
- benzenoids and phenylpropanoids
- green leaf volatiles
but we also measure derivatized non-volatile metabolites.
We also have a LC-MS triple Quad platform for targeted analysis of non-volatile metabolites such as
- plant hormones
- amino acids
We have an open policy for collaborative projects and can also perform analysis on a contract basis.
