The Institute uses Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry to support research into programmes aimed at understanding the balance between diet and human health.

LC/MS is a powerful technique, combining the separation capabilities of liquid chromatography with the mass analysis capabilities of mass spectrometry. The LC/MS/MS instruments are used for the quantification of a range of metabolites by Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) and the specificity of the MRM technique ensures greater sensitivity.
The section has 4 triple-quad mass spectrometers
