The focus of the Bio mass spectroscopy unit is on peptide and protein analysis and quantitative proteomic approaches.
- MALDI-ToF MS, mainly for protein identification and characterization of proteins and synthetic polymers
- LC-ESI MS (Orbitrap), predominantly for quantitative proteomic analysis
- ICP-MS for multi-element analysis (mostly metals) in biological samples
The staff of the facility will help users to choose appropriate techniques, explain their limitation and provide advice on how to prepare samples. Typically the measurements will be performed by the core facility staff, but independent use of the equipment is possible after a comprehensive training in special case.
