Mass Spectrometry Laboratory

The Mass Spectrometry Laboratory uses specialized chromatography, electrophoresis, and cell fractionation systems, combined with high-performance mass spectrometers (Orbitrap Fusion, LTQ-Orbitrap, Triple Quadrupole, and MALDI- TOF-TOF), to separate and analyze components of tissue, serum and other physiological samples, resulting in protein characterization, identification and biomarker discovery. The laboratory is equipped with 4 mass spectrometers that are capable of identifying and quantitating femtomole levels of biomolecules such as peptides and proteins.
