The Mass Spectrometry Laboratory provides a wide range of sample characterization techniques for researchers. Mass spectrometry services include: (1) a variety of ionization methods including electron, chemical, matrix assisted laser desorption, direct analysis in real time, electrospray, and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization and ICP, (2) a variety of analyzers including time of flight, quadrupole, ion trap, Orbitrap, and several tandem combinations of mass analyzers, and (3) microflow, nanoflow and regular flow liquid chromatography. For proteomics studies, some equipment is available for protein/peptide identification. In addition, the facility provides consultation for sample preparation, experimental design, analysis of protein expression patterns, data mining, and operation of the various instruments. This laboratory is a part of the UCLA Molecular Instrumentation Center.
