Mass Spectrometry

Services and Fees

The Mass Spectrometry Service Center may be used on a self-service basis but also provides full-service analysis for small molecules on a fee-for-service basis. This includes accurate mass analysis of small molecules, quantitative measurements of small molecules on the triple quad mass spectrometer using LC-MS/MS and multiple reaction monitoring (MRM). Other types of analyses include untargeted and targeted metabolomics measurements.

To submit samples, please fill out the sample submission form (PDF) and forward to  We are happy to hear from you and consult on any questions related to mass spectrometry.


To calculate full-service cost, technical support time is added to machine run time for the applicable instrument. Please note that the Xevo® G2-S QTof is available on a full-service basis only.
