The service primarily exists to support all work across the Norwich Research Park that requires mass spectrometry (MS).
Current nomenclature has been used to differentiate large molecule analysis (typically proteins / proteomics) from small molecule analysis (typically metabolites / metabolomics). However, inevitably there are many examples of compounds which do not fit neatly into either of the these descriptions.
In addition, there is an increasing interest in using MS imaging techniques (e.g. utilising MALDI or DESI sources) which can be applied to several different types of mass spectrometer.
For these reasons, we would encourage any potential MS users to contact either of the two MS facility managers in the first instance to discuss their specific application(s). Please click 'Contact Us' for further details.
Please note that we also welcome enquiries from organisations external to the Norwich Research Park.
