Our research is focused on method development for the quantification of chemical species of biomedical interest. The research involves the use of a wide range of modern analytical instruments including HPLC-MS/MS, laser induced fluorescence spectrometry, and GC-MS.
"CE with UV detection is appropriate for the quantitation of analytes yielding chromophores, as shown for the analysis of tablets containing amphetamines."
"The Innova® 300 FRED™, using the technique of intracavity frequency-doubling (second harmonic generation) with b-Barium Borate (BBO), produces continuous wave (cw) laser light in the 229.0 to 264.3 nm region. Output is provided at six different wavelengths in this deep-UV region, with specified output powers up to 100 mW."
"Sources for the PerkinElmer Luminescence Spectrometers are pulsed Xenon discharge lamps (7.3 W average power at 50 Hz). This reliable source produces very little ozone or heat but provides remarkable sensitivity due to its peak intensity exceeding 1 KW! On most LS Series instruments the detector electronics are controlled so that delay and gate time can be varied to measure phosphorescence between source pulses."
