The mass spectrometry facility has
finished moving to NHB!!


-The sample submission table has been moved to NHB 5.342.
-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.**

The High Res CI instrument is NOW OPERATIONAL.  We will be working through the sample backlog over the next couple of weeks.**

Our Mass Spectrometry Facility runs over 20,000 samples every year!!

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.
