Show Mass Spec Help

Note: MW Confirmation refers to nominal mass only MS Sample Requirements

  • Submit > 1 nmol if sending an oligonucleotide for oligo sequencing, or > 50 pico moles for all other oligo analyses. An ideal oligo submission for routine work would be at least 30 microliters of 5 micromolar sample
  • Submit 50-100 ug (e.g. 1mg/mL x 50-100 uL) for MAb analysis. Tell us in the comments if the samples contain any detergent (Tween, TritonX, etc).
  • Sample may be dry (specify grams or moles) or in solution (specify volume & concentration)
  • Provide target molecular weight or putative oligonucleotide sequence (use IDT designation as specified at IDT Oligo Nomenclature) including sequence modifications if available
  • If submitting a small molecule, please indicate the structure and/or functional groups, a solvent, and any other important information in the Comments field of the Excel sheet
