The Mason Metabolomics Facility

The Mason Metabolomics Facility houses several chromatography instruments, including a GC-FID, GC-NPD, and semi-preparative and preparative HPLCs. The metabolomics platform is centered on an Agilent 7890A Gas Chromatograph with 5975C Mass Spectrometer, an Agilent 1290 Infinity LC with a 6530 QToF (MS/MS), and an Agilent 1100 LC-MSD (with interchangeable ESI, APPI, and APCI sources). Coupled with custom designed software algorithms and the commercially purchased Agilent Mass Profiler Professional software package, these instruments enable a comprehensive examination of volatile and non-volatile metabolites present in biological samples.
