Research Facilities

Chemical Purification, Analysis, & Screening



The Chemical Purification, Analysis, and Screening Core Facility offers expertise in chromatographic separation and purification (MPLC, HPLC, UHPLC); and mass spectrometry detection, identification, and quantification (LC-MS SQ, LC-MS QqQ, LC-MS ToF, LC-MS QToF, GC-MSD, GC-MS QToF). Services include circular dichroism, general spectroscopic characterization (UV, FTIR), lyophilization (benchtop and general purpose freeze-dryer), synthesis (microwave reactor), ADME screening (PAMPA and drug solubility), and high-throughput screening development capability (liquid handling robot and multimode plate reader). This facility provides research lab training and assistance to users so they can operate any instruments necessary to successfully accomplishing their research goals.
