Ion mobility spectrometry

The MSR is investigating use of IMS-MS for bottom up and top-down applications in the glycosciences. These include glycan isomer analysis, glycoproteomics, and top-down analysis of glycoproteins. The MSR currently houses two mass spectrometers with IMS functionality: a conventional drift-time IMS-Q-TOF instrument, and a dual-source hybrid
Qh-FTICR mass spectrometer equipped with a prototype trapped ion mobility spectrometry (TIMS) device. To learn more about TIMS, click here.
