Service

MSSL has invested heavily in equipment for the analysis of unknown organic compounds in water and other matrices. The equipment avialble includes Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry, Triple Quadrupole LCMSMS and Triple Quadrupole GCMSMS.


Matrix

Compounds that can be investigated include pharmaceutical residues/ steroids to antibiotics, flame retardants, agro chemicals, pesticides and solvents to name but a few…

Importance

When compounds are identified as being present in a sample, different reporting options can be offered including Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry (TOF). Further analysis by Triple Quadrupole GC-LCMS can then be undertaken. This enables delivery of accurate results and some of the lowest levels of detection available today.
