Bioanalytical experts for your most challenging projects

Whether your project is large or small, we can help with the identification and quantification of proteins and proteoforms present in a biological sample. Our support can enable insights into the complexities and emergent properties of biological systems for drug discovery and development activities. After an initial discussion of your requirements, we will confirm how we can help. If you’d like to proceed, we’ll assign an expert team and project manager.

State-of-the art instrumentation and expertise in proteomics and biopharmaceutical analysis to fuel your research

Specializing in proteomics, liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry and bioinformatics

We operate as a collaborative scientific service core, developing analytical strategies that address significant bioanalytical challenges—advancing knowledge in a variety of applications. The final analytical strategies often represent combined developments in instrumentation, sample processing and data analysis. We run support services for Fortune 500 companies, such as Merck and Johnson & Johnson. Our team of experts work with organizations such as Thermo Fisher Scientific and others to solve problems.

The facility has several main research foci:

  • Ultra-sensitive quantification of small-molecule analyses, such as drugs, metabolites and biomolecules
  • Comprehensive protein expression profiling and differential proteome analysis
  • Ultra-sensitive quantification of proteins/peptides
