With best-in-class sensitivity, precision, and scan speed, researchers can use less or diluted sample amounts and still be highly confident in the accuracy of your results.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for performing sponsored research and other sponsored activities under grants and contracts funded by the sponsor or by sources other than State appropriations. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(8)) The current instrument in the Mass Spectrometry Core is over 10 years old and can no longer perform with the current demand for services.
