Mass Spectrometry

The mission of the Mass Spectrometry Core in the LSU Health-Shreveport Research Core Facility is to provide efficient and cost effective proteomics- and metabolomics-based services for research investigators.

The facility is located in room F6-12 in the Biomedical Research Institute. For protein analysis, our principal approach is bottom-up proteomics, which is a common method to identify proteins and characterize their amino acid sequences and post-translational modifications by proteolytic digest prior to analysis by mass spectrometry. In addition to our standard services, we also strive to continue to develop new, state-of-the-art mass spectrometry-based analyses based upon input and specific requests from our users.

User Guidelines:

The Mass Spectrometry Core was established to provide services to the biomedical research community at LSU Health-Shreveport. Although samples will be run by Core staff, we expect our users to familiarize themselves with sample preparation, data acquisition and interpretation and be an active part of sample analysis.
