The “Analytics Core Facility Essen (ACE)” of the Center of Medical Biotechnology (ZMB) of the University Duisburg-Essen provides state-of-the-art analytical services for all ZMB researchers and collaborating groups of the University Duisburg-Essen or external universities or research institutions.

We offer a large number of different services for performing proteomics or for the characterization of small molecules. An important aspect of our work is to integrate and provide timely approaches for mass spectrometry of proteins, other biomolecules and biomarkers (proteomics, metabolomics).

The Analytics Core Facility harbors a number of state-of-the-art mass spectrometers, and other equipment needed for proteomics and metabolomics. If you are interested to use one of our services or if you want to discuss the feasibility and implementation of one of your ideas, please contact us. We will help to find customized solutions for your research needs.
