HRMS Platform FR 2708
The HRMS platform (FR 2708) is the result of the Research Federation "Physics and Chemistry of Life" (PCV), created in 2004. It brings together two laboratories in Orléans:
- ICOA: Institute of Organic and Analytical Chemistry, UMR CNRS 7311
- CBM: Center of Molecular Biophysics, UPR CNRS 4301
The platform has two UHR-Q-TOF instruments, one located at the CBM and the other at the ICOA.
At ICOA, the UHR-QTOF instrument is equipped with a CID fragmentation module, mainly used for the structural characterization of small molecules.
This instrument can be coupled with various existing chromatographic systems (UHPLC, nanoUHPLC, SFC and CE) and has a number of different sources: ESI, nanoESI, APCI and APPI, which allows the ionisation of a very wide range of compounds.
The platform also has access to
- a MALDI-TOF
- a pipetting machine for performing colorimetric or enzymatic tests, for pharmacokinetic studies via sample repair by solid phase extraction
- a UV-Visible and fluorescence plate reader
