Advanced Biomolecular Analysis Core (ABAC)

The Advanced Biomolecular Analysis Core (ABAC) provides cutting-edge and novel proteomic methods along with powerful new technologies for mass spectrometric imaging of biological samples and high throughput metabolomics. The core provides opportunities for adopting emerging methods and developing entirely novel ones. We are dedicated to furthering the reach and accuracy of analytical methods and to sharing our expertise with the WCMC community.

All service requests require prior consultation with core personnel.
