The High Resolution Mass Spectrometry Facility (HRMSF) serves researchers in over thirty research groups from five different colleges within the University of Iowa.
HRMSF staff provide information pertaining to the molecular weight, elemental composition and molecular structure of a compound. They perform high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) experiments or accurate mass measurements to determine the elemental formula of new synthetic molecules and natural products. They also perform tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS) experiments, which are used to assist in the structure determination of unknown molecules. Two open access instruments (GC/MS and LC/MS) are available to on-campus researchers who have been trained by the HRMSF staff.
HRMSF staff are available for consultation with researchers to develop mass spectrometry strategies to resolve research problems. Mass spectrometry services are also available to non-University of Iowa researchers at a somewhat increased rate. http://research.uiowa.edu/vpr/units/hrmsf/
