The new instruments will revolutionise our ability to tackle even the most challenging problems. They will give researchers the opportunity to expand their research in many novel directions.
Mass spectrometry is a powerful analytical tool with many diverse applications in biology and chemistry. The York Centre of Excellence in Mass Spectrometry provides a means for you to access state-of-the-art instrumentation, along with the necessary expertise to develop your research in many areas, such as therapeutic protein discovery and characterisation, post-genomic sciences, gas-phase ion chemistry, chemical catalyst discovery, and many more.
The Centre of Excellence in Mass Spectrometry at the University of York is a joint initiative of the Departments of Biology and Chemistry. It was created in 2008 thanks to a major capital investment of £1.6 million through Science City York, supported by Yorkshire Forward with funds from the Northern Way initiative.
The facility helps scientists to tackle some of their most testing analytical challenges, and provides a highly specialised technical service to both academia and industry.
We actively encourage users and collaborators from academic institutions and commercial enterprises.
Please contact us to discuss how we can help to advance your research through the application of mass spectrometry.
"The Univeristy of York's Centre of Excellence in Mass Spectrometry brings together the latest technology with internationally-recognised expertise to create a unique and strategic resource for the scientific community."
