Overview

The University of Auckland (the University) requires a liquid chromatography instrument with a tandem mass spectrometer (LC-MS/MS system). It must be a state-of-the-art fully integrated benchtop LC-MS/MS system and will be part of a suite of existing LC-MS and LC-MS/MS systems. It needs to be robust, reliable, easy to operate and maintain, and have excellent analytical performance. We expect outstanding and relevant local technical service and support with a demonstrable record. Support and technical assistance from application specialists is highly desirable, be it on-site or remote. It will be used mainly for the quantitative analyses of small molecule drugs and their respective metabolites in biological samples. In addition, quantitation of target proteins after proteolytic digestion (i.e. targeted proteomics) in biological samples. The instrument will be located in the Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre, School of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, at the University, and used by multiple users (i.e. academic and technical staff and students) from different disciplines from across the University as well as external users. In future, the system may become an integral part of a new Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry Hub to be formed in the University.
