Mass Spectrometry / Proteomics Facility


We are open for business! We are happy to be back. During Phase 1, we will be operating at reduced capacity. We will make every effort to keep turnaround times short as we understand there are many projects that have been waiting. We appreciate your patience and business. The UW Biotechnology Center is following University guidelines regarding COVID-19.

New Lipidomics Services!

The Mass Spectrometry Core Facility has established the Advanced Lipidomics Facility (ALF) through a collaboration with Dr. Judith Simcox and Dr. Dudley Lamming as a part of the UW-Madison Comprehensive Diabetes Center.  This platform is based on a state-of-the-art Agilent 6546 QTOF mass spectrometer coupled with an Agilent 1290 Infinity II UHPLC system.  The methods have been tested on several tissue types including plasma, intestine, skin, neuron, pancreas, liver, and adipose tissue.  

Samples are submitted as frozen tissues, homogenized, extracted, and prepared for LC/MS/MS analysis.  Data are collected in both positive and negative ion modes using C18-based chromatography.  Data analysis is performed by the Mass Spectrometry Core Facility, with raw and processed outputs available for additional data analysis.

Lipidomics pilot experiment grants are available!  Click here to learn more.

Please submit a completed submission form along with your sample, and provide an updated billing form when appropriate.
