The Department is very excited to welcome a new addition to our already impressive suite of chemistry instrumentation in the Wilkens Science Center. Earlier this month our new Agilent 1260 Infinity II liquid chromatography and InfinityLab quadrupole mass spectrometry detector (LC-MS) instrument arrived, was installed, and passed all tests. We are very excited to begin using this instrument in both teaching and research. LC-MS is an instrument very commonly used in pharmaceutical and biomedical companies. Having our students gain hands-on experience with this instrument will be invaluable as they move forward in internships and in their careers. Dr. Gerdon is already planning experiments for the Analytical Chemistry class in the spring semester!
This instrument came to our department through Emmanuel College’s tremendous support of the sciences and we are very grateful!
