****The mass spectrometry facility is currently in the process of moving from Welch to NHB.**** 

    We will be updating our website as our five instruments are moved to show their new locations and their operational status. The sample submission table has also been moved to NHB 5.342. Please be patient and expect delays on submitted samples and training, as the move and re-installation of the instruments will be our top priority. 
    For our external users, please note the new NHB shipping address at the left side of the page.

**Welch Walk-Up LC/MS is now located in WEL 4.402, and is operational again.
See Ian in NHB 5.350 to get a key to this room, as it will be locked 24/7.**

High Res CI results will not be available until at least January, once the Autospec is fully installed in FNT B.104.**

Our Mass Spectrometry Facility has run over 22,000 samples in 2016!!

About Our Services

    Our facility offers support for the analysis of a wide variety of analytes using mass spectrometry based techniques. We have instrumentation and expertise in multiple ionization techniques including ESI, APCI, EI, and CI allowing for investigation of a wide range of molecular structures. With our three staff operated instruments, we provide services for molecular formula confirmation (accurate mass measurement), structural elucidation (MS/MS) and quantitation of small molecules. We also offer three user-run Walk-Up instruments that are available 24/7 for trained users.

    We are currently serving researchers from 10 departments at UT Austin, as well as users from 5 other UT campuses and 14 external universities / national labs! We would love to hear from you to discuss how we can help fulfill your sample analysis needs.
