Mass Spectrometry Core (BIDMC)

Location: Mass Spectrometry Core, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, CLS-425, Boston, MA 02115

Core Summary:

The mass spectrometry, proteomics, metabolomics and lipidomics facility at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center was established in 2004 led by Dr. John Asara and continues to grow rapidly. We provide excellent proteomics and metabolomics services with low prices and fast turnaround times. We have cutting edge instruments operated at optimal sensitivity and work and publish with world class researchers. We also maintain an active internal cancer proteomics and metabolomics research program with collaborative efforts. Our expertise is in identifying and quantifying protein modifications and dynamic protein-protein interactions in addition to polar metabolomics profiling, flux analysis and lipidomics profiling. We accept collaborations from anywhere in the world and look forward to helping you and progressing your research to the next level.
