Welcome to the Molecular Mass Spectrometry Facility, UC San Diego

Molecular Mass Spectrometry Facility (MMSF)

The molecular mass spectrometry facility (MMSF) in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has been established to serve the needs of the entire UCSD community. The MMSF is one of the Technical Support Facilities in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department. Our goal is to provide high quality MS analysis with available technical and educational resources so that researchers can obtain data with a full understanding of their implications.

The MMSF provide routine MS analysis on various types of samples including synthetic organic molecules, synthetic peptides, natural products, organometallic compounds, intact proteins, and oligonucleotides. For peptide sequencing, protein identification, and protein post-translational modifications, please contact the personnel in the Biomolecular MS Facility.
