The ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry) Analysis Core houses the most advanced instrumentation for high-quality research and a range of analytical needs. ICP-MS analysis is available for researchers to rapidly determine the qualitative and quantitative composition with wide element coverage (~80 elements) in a single run. The uniquely constructed facility enables the chemical analysis at a part per trillion (ppt, pg/mL) scale with high sensitivity, which shows a much lower detection limit as compared to other analytical instruments (e.g., ICP-OES, AAS).

The ICP-MS Analysis Core Facility provides researchers with consultation about a variety of samples for effective decision-making based on the customer’s demands and interests. Furthermore, we offer services from sample preparation, such as developing acid digestion protocols, to data acquisition with optimizing experimental conditions. Well-trained staff will conduct the entire analysis including providing data reports with background correction.

The UCLA Molecular Instrumentation Center (MIC) is a campus-wide, state-of-the-art core facility that enables the use of modern instrumentation in molecular characterizations.

The purpose of the MIC is to meet the needs of the UCLA scientific community by providing all aspects of technical support in the application of modern instrumentation to solve problems in cutting-edge scientific research. MIC professional staff is responsible for operating, maintaining, and upgrading the equipment and training users. MIC encompasses four major areas: Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectrometry, X-ray Diffraction, and Materials Characterization.
