The mission of the proteomics division is to provide superb proteomics services to customers from University of Florida, the state. and the nation, and to train and educate faculty, staff and students in state-of-the-art proteomics technologies.

Core Laboratories

Mass Spectrometry

The Mass Spectrometry core provides a variety of services related to protein fractionation, qualitative and quantitative mass spectrometry analysis, de novo protein sequencing and protein database searching. Protein sequencing and identification are routine procedures in the core.The core has a suite of state-of-the-art mass spectrometers and software available for detailed characterization of proteins and peptides, including post-translational modification analysis and accurate molecular weight determination. To ensure success and maximize productivity, the Mass Spectrometry core offers education, consultation, data processing and reporting, and support of grant application.
