The LECO European Life Sciences and Chemical Analysis Center is providing access to high resolution mass spectrometry instrumentation to the Joint Mass Spectrometry Center, a cooperative partnership between the University of Rostock (Rostock, Germany) and the Helmholtz Zentrum München —German Research Center for Environmental Health (Neuherberg, Germany).
The Joint Mass Spectrometry Center is led by Dr. Ralf Zimmermann, who also serves as both the chair of analytical chemistry at the University of Rostock and the head of the comprehensive molecular analytics cooperation group at the Helmholtz Zentrum München. Zimmermann and his team will use LECO instruments installed in their laboratory, and will be supported in their research efforts and method development by LECO’s expertise.
The Joint Mass Spectrometry Center will have access to LECO’s instrumentation for applied research in areas such as health-relevant environmental analysis, comprehensive molecular profiling, biomedical, and forensic research, and analytical method development.
“LECO is honored to support the work of Prof. Dr. Zimmermann and the Joint Mass Spectrometry Centre characterizing complex molecular mixtures,” said Jürgen Wendt, LCMS Technical Product Specialist, at the LECO European Life Science and Chemical Analysis Centre. “We are confident that his team will significantly benefit from the advantages provided by High Resolution TOFMS.”
