Mass Spectrometry Services
We offer a wide range of analysis on several types of mass spectrometers, such as MALDI TOF, ESI quads, ESI TOF, ESI QTOF and ESI ion traps. We can handle a variety of different compounds including small molecules, peptides, proteins and oligonucleotides. Our proteomics service includes in-gel or in-solution proteolytic digestion, nano-LC-MS/MS or MALDI-TOF MS, and the identification of proteins based on database searching, plus characterizing post-translational modifications if desired. We also offer GC/MS and have expert staff on hand to handle custom mass spectrometry and method development.
If you are comfortable working with a mass spectrometer, we have several instruments in our Open Access Lab available to all. It takes only a brief training session to get started. If you are ready to submit samples please sign up at CoreService.
A Scripps Research multi-core effort can provide a complete PK analysis service from drug administration to quantitative analysis.
We can identify proteins and post translational modifications using a procedure that includes digestion, nano-LC/MS/MS analysis and NCBI database searching.
Open Access Lab
Reserve time on one of our Single Quadrupole, ESI-TOF, or MALDI-TOF mass spectrometers.
Metabolomic Pathway Analysis
We offer Krebs Cycle (TCA) or Amino Acid analysis via HILIC chromatography using a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer with multiple reaction monitoring mode.
Our MALDI-TOF service can provide up to unit mass results on a variety of compounds including polymers and small oligonucleotides.
Intact Protein Analysis
Proteins are analyzed via MALDI-TOF and ESI-TOF to provide m/z data. If you require protein characterization info on digested proteins we also offer Proteomics services.
We can provide High accuracy m/z measurements with mass errors of less than 5ppm in either positive or negative modes.
Our analysis is qualitative, giving chromatogram traces, ms spectra for all major peaks, and a library search. Best for compounds that easily vaporize and are kept in volatile solvents. Quantitative analysis is also available.
