Scientific Research Services for JAX Faculty

Mass Spectrometry and Protein Chemistry

The Mass Spectrometry and Protein Chemistry (MASPC) Service aims to provide state-of-the-art mass spectrometry and protein analyses to internal scientists and researchers of The Jackson Laboratory. The Mass Spectrometry side is equipped to provide high-throughput analyses for metabolomics, proteomics, single-molecule, and mass spectrometry imaging studies. The Protein Chemistry service provides extensive experience in protein analyses, including purification, antibody based detection and quantitation, gel electrophoresis, Western Blots, and more.

What is Mass Spectrometry? Mass spectrometry is a scientific technique for measuring the mass of molecules. This analytical chemistry technique can identify chemical components and the amounts present in a sample by measuring the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) and abundance.

How can the MASPC help your research? The applications of the MASPC are as diverse as the areas of research at JAX. From identifying proteins, to quantifying small molecule drugs, and anything in between, MASPC can assist in your research. Right now metabolomics, proteomics, single-molecule drug tracking, and many more processes have established protocols. However, if you have a particular project in mind, ASK! We are always happy to help and establish new protocols.
