In conjunction with the completion of the new Science and Technology Wing, Mount Royal University acquired an impressive array of research-grade, analytical instruments from ThermoFisher Scientific. These include:

  • DXR Raman Microscope
  • Nicolet 6700 FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer)
  •  ISQ Single Quadruple Trace GC/MS/FID (Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer/Flame Ionization Detector) with TRiPlus RSH Autosampler (Liquid, Headspace & SPME)
  •  XSeries2 ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry)
  •  LTQ-XL-ETD /MS detector (Hybrid HPLC / Mass Spectrometer incorporating a Linear Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer and an ETD Module "Electron Transfer Dissociation")
  •  Accela 600 pump, HPLC/UHPLC Autosampler & PDA Detector  (Ultra-High Performance Liquid Chromatography)

Other laboratory resources available include the following:

  • Camag Linomat 5 & AMD 2 HPTLC System (High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography)
  • Metrohm 883 Basic IC Plus (Ion Chromatograph)
  • Varian Cary 50 Bio (UV/Vis Spectrophotometer)
  • Cary Eclipse Fluorescence Spectrophotometer (Microplate reader & Single cuvette reader with temperature control)
  • Varian EM 360A, with a 60 MHz field strength NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscope), includes both proton and carbon channels

These and other instruments offer exciting opportunities for students in both regular courses and faculty-supervised, student projects.  For more information, please contact us by emailing
