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 the School of Biosciences and the Department of Chemistry – and across two buildings – the Edwardian Building of the Firth Court complex and the Dainton Building. You can also email us at:


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.
