Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry Core Facility

Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry Core Facility

Offering nominal and accurate MS analysis, and providing identification and quantitation of metabolites by LC-MS or GC-MS, and protein sample preparation and subsequent identification by LC-ESI-MS

Instrument use

Unless otherwise noted, all instruments are for use only by Facility staff.

Please note: there is an open-access LC-MS instrument in 3 Althouse Laboratory that is available for students to use; interested parties should contact James Miller.

More information on the Facility's mass spectrometry (MS), liquid and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS and GC-MS), and liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS) services and instrumentation.
