Back to Core Research Facilities

The combined QB3/Chemistry Mass Spectrometry Facility at UC Berkeley features state-of-the-art mass spectrometers, that are capable of analyzing a wide variety of samples. The facility provides acquisition of mass spectra and accurate mass measurements of biological, organic and inorganic compounds, as well as mass measurements of intact proteins, lipids, oligosaccharides, and non-covalent protein-protein and protein-ligand complexes and supramolecular coordination clusters. The facility also provides advanced proteomics analysis. This involves protein identification using mass spectral data as well as identification of posttranslational modifications. In addition, the facility provides ion mobility spectrometry. The facility also operates an open access MALDI-TOF instrument available to trained users.
