About the centre
We provide a wide variety of analytical workflows in our two facilities, biOMICS and chemMS, working and interacting together to offer excellent support for your research.
Where can you find us?
The Faculty of Science Mass Spectrometry Centre is located within three departments – Animal and Plant Sciences, Biomedical Science and Chemistry – and two buildings – the Edwardian Building of the Firth Court complex and the Dainton Building.
Biological mass spectrometry facility
The biOMICS facility provides a full infrastructure for mass spectrometry based analysis of simple and complex mixtures of protein, peptides and metabolites, including their identification, characterisation and quantification.
Chemistry mass spectrometry facility
In chemMS, we can analyse relatively complex mixtures and pure organic compounds with liquid or gas chromatography, direct infusion, Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP) and MALDI coupled to mass spectrometers.
