Mass Spec and Proteomics > About Us

Welcome to the Campus Chemical Instrument Center (CCIC) Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Facility at The Ohio State University (OSU)

We hope you will find that we can meet your research needs as we offer a wide range of services. Please feel free to contact us to discuss the wide range of experiments we can perform.

The mandate of the CCIC Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics (MSP) Facility is to provide state-of-the-art instrumentation and personnel expertise for a wide variety of research projects. Main areas of services we provide include i) proteomics, ii) metabolomics, and iii) general mass spec analyses for research groups. We also participate and provide support for grant applications and education. The Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Facility at CCIC is an interdisciplinary unit, servicing faculty from the colleges of Biological Sciences, Education and Human Ecology, Engineering, Food, Agriculture & Environmental Sciences, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, Medicine, Optometry, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine just to name a few. CCIC also serves scientists from other universities and industry within and outside of Ohio.

Please Note

The Mass Spectrometry & Proteomics Facility CANNOT ACCEPT RADIOACTIVE or HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

In order to minimize contamination in mass spectrometry and proteomics it is recommend you review this PDF prior starting your experiment(s).
