Central Facilities

Analytics Core Facility Essen (ACE)

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).
