Equipment Rentals

The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences makes its state-of-the-art equipment available to the scientific community on a rental basis. Affordable and precise, we offer a range of equipment that is maintained by expert faculty and technicians.
 

400 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectrometer

The Faculty 400 MHz NMR spectrometer is equipped with an automated sample changer and a multinuclear broadband fluorine observe probe (5 mm sample diameter). This instrument can be used to acquire routine 1H, 13C, 19F, and 31P spectra and a wide range of multidimensional NMR spectra. Variable high temperature (up to 100°C) NMR experiments can also be run. Treatment of spectral data is conveniently done on an offline workstation (Topspin software).

Details

Rental fee:

  • 1H NMR: $15/spectrum, or $40/hour
  • All multidimensional spectra: $30/hour
  • Per 13C NMR (night time accumulation): $30/hour

Q Exactive Orbitrap system

The Thermo Scientific Q Exactive™ Orbitrap is a benchtop high resolution mass spectrometer (HRMS), which is well suited to untargeted or targeted screening with high-confidence confirmation in a variety of applications, and also, to the characterization of new drug discovery candidates with typically less than 2 ppm mass error.

Details

Rental fee:

  • Mass Determination (flow injection or infusion, no chromatography), High Res: Academic $80/sample; Non-Academic $120/sample
  • nanoLC-MS/MS analysis (with chromatography): Academic $200/hour*; Non-Academic $300/hour*

1 hour minimum charge.

*Price may be negotiated with respect to specific assay.

UHPLC/MS/MS system

The UHPLC/MS/MS system consists of an Agilent 1290 Infinity UHPLC connected to an AB Sciex QTrap® 5500 hybrid linear ion-trap triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. The Agilent UHPLC offers one of the best performance characteristics which is available today, and with the AB Sciex QTrap® 5500 system, mass spectrometry cubed (MS3) experiments are possible, which opens new a horizon in mass spectrometry.

Details

Rental fee:

  • Mass Determination (flow injection or infusion, no chromatography), Low Res: Academic $50/sample; Non-Academic $80/sample
  • LC-MS/MS analysis (with chromatography): Academic $100/hour; Non-Academic $150/hour

1 hour minimum charge.
