Core facility (CF)

Short Description

The Mass Spectrometry Facility is focused on the identification and characterization of proteins and peptides.
Mass spectrometry has emerged as the dominating technology for the characterization and quantification of proteins. However, the high price of LC-MS instrumentation makes it difficult for individual laboratories or even institutes to keep pace with the progress in state-of-the-art technology in protein analysis.
The Mass Spectrometry Facility is operated as an instrument park and supports research groups by providing a pool of advanced mass spectrometers, maintenance and quality control of the diverse LC-MS set-ups and expert advice. LC-MS requires expert operators; therefore, samples from the research groups are measured by the core facilities of the respective institutes.
