Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Laboratory (MIC)

The Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics 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, (2) a variety of analyzers including time of flight, quadrupole, ion trap, Orbitrap, ion cyclotron resonance, and several tandem combinations of mass analyzers, and (3) microflow and nanoflow liquid chromatography. For proteomics studies, equipment is available for running and analyzing 1-D and 2-D gels, transferring mini- and mid-size gels, gel imaging, spot cutting, in-gel digestion, and protein/peptide identification. In addition, the facility provides consultation for sample preparation, experimental design, gel staining, analysis of protein expression patterns, western and lectin blots, in-gel trypic digestion, data mining, and operation of the various instruments. This laboratory is a part of the UCLA Molecular Instrumentation Center.
