Mass Spectrometry Facility

The Mass Spectrometry Facility at Keele University is run in collaboration with Guy Hilton Research Centre (GHRC) and the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital (RJAH) in Oswestry. 

We provide proteomics and mass spectrometry services for UK based researchers, engage in research collaborations and implement current technologies in facility services.

Keele has invested in a variety of mass spectrometers with complementary analytical capabilities, together with HPLC equipment to provide upstream separation for enhanced sensitivity and automation.

Keele’s mass spectrometry facilities are housed across two adjacent buildings on the main Campus site: in the Huxley Building (School of Life Sciences) and the Lennard Jones Laboratories (School of Physical and Geographical Sciences).

There are a number of groups using mass spectrometry as their primary analytical method:
