Bruker Microflex LT Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight (MADLI-TOF) Mass Spectrometer (MS)

The Bruker Microflex LT MADLI-TOF system is an affordable, high-value benchtop MALD-TOF Mass Spetrometer with accurate mass determination for bio-molecules. The system includes a microSCOUT MALDI ion source with extended pulse ion extraction PANTM mass range focussing. The MALDI-TOF contains a 60Hz nitrogen laser used to ionise the sample. The Time of Flight analyser only allows only linear measurements, with no upgrade to TOF/TOF. The MALDI-TOF is accompanied by a Data System with a digitizer. The operating software om the central processing unit is Windows-XP.

Bruker X Band ESR Spectrometer Electron Spin Resonance spectrometer (ESR)

An electron spin resonance (ESR) is used to study chemical, biochemical, cellular and material samples (incl. nanomaterials) with unpaired electrons. The sensitivity of ESR spectroscopy is in the detection of low concentrations of radicals which makes the method ideal for monitoring the radical content of manufactured foods and beverages (beer/wine).
