Equipment

The infrastructure of the IMC is embedded into the OCI and BMWZ of the Leibniz University of Hannover. Thus, it has access to modern analytical methods like high resolution mass spectrometry (ESI, APCI and EI in combination with HPLC, GC or the orbitrap method) and several NMR machines as well as modern synthesis equipment (high pressure synthesis reactor, hydrogenation autoclaves, several preparative and analytical LC-MS, preparative and analytical GC-MS).

Additionally, the IMC is equipped with several own LC-MS machines as well as preparative and analytical HPLCs, TLC-MS, a flow hydrogenation apparatus, freeze dryers, a LibertyBlu peptide synthesizer, electrochemical reactors and devices for flow chemistry. The IMC runs S2 cell culture labs with photometers for luminescence assays and cytotoxicity tests. A lab for physicochemical characterization of compounds is currently being set up.
