The University of Auckland (the University) requires a Gas chromatography triple quadrupole mass spectrometer system (Triple Quad GC/MS). It must be a state-of-the-art fully integrated Triple Quad GC/MS system. 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 complex matrices such as food and wine. Mass spectrometry (MS) is a key tool for the researchers in Wine Science as it allows for fast, accurate and sensitive detection of metabolites in grape, wine and vineyard/winery environmental samples.
