Lab. 8.2.33 - Forensics Biological and Environmental Mass Spectrometry Laboratory

MS9

MS9

Sector Mass Spectrometer, Nier-Johnson geometry, with electron ionisation (EI), chemical ionisation (CI) and fast atom bombardment (FAB), linked scans (enables MS/MS experiments). Still working, it constitutes an excellent equipment for teaching purposes.

The MS9, delivered by AEI in 1962, has a long and glorious history. It was the first instrument specifically designed for qualitative organic analysis achieving a resolving power of 10 000. Later developments increased the magnetic and electrostatic sector radius enabling to increase the resolution to 100 000 - 200 000. It was in a similar instrument that Prof. Keith Jennings carried out his groundbreaking work on collisionally induced dissociation (CID).
