Biological Mass Spectrometry Facility

A specialised service using mass spectrometry to accelerate protein and metabolite research. The biOMICS Facility provides a full infrastructure for the analysis of simple and complex mixtures of protein, peptides and metabolites, including their identification, characterisation and quantification.

Applications include


Protein identification/quanitification:

  • Amino acid sequencing
  • Proteome profiling
  • Protein-protein interactions
  • Post-translational modifications
  • Biomarker discovery
  • Relative and absolute quantitation
  • Multiplexing quantitation


Metabolite identification/quantification:

  • Plant metabolism studies
  • Drug metabolism studies
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Biomarker discovery
  • Cell development stage

Isotope ratio analysis:

  • Stable carbon and nitrogen isotope ratio measurement
  • Isotopic labelling tracer studies
