So I’ve either completely lost my mind or I’ve finally caught a break. I managed to grab a full LCMS (single quadrupole) system complete with high vacuum pumps and software from some very kind people who believe in me. Although getting a 400 volt direct line in my parent’s basement won’t be possible, at least I can say I have an LCMS in my home lab, which is cool. My aunts minivan was cruising through the streets with about 1,000+ lbs of analytical chemistry equipment the other day, which put the breaks to the test.
This isn’t a machine I can run from a home-lab anyway as it requires huge power loads and a steady delivery of nitrogen and helium tanks. I’m hoping I can find a new home for it and or myself soon! .
