Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics


This state of the art facility, situated within LIMS and the School of Molecular Sciences, offers La Trobe staff, students and external users access to a range of high-end mass spectrometry equipment.

La Trobe established the facility with funding from the Co-oporative Research Centre for Biomarker Translation (CRC-BT) and an Australian Research Centre LIEF grant, enabling the Department of Biochemistry to purchase a mass spectrometry-based proteomics suite from Bruker Daltronics.

The facility also boasts Bruker Proteineer robotic equipment and a Dionex Liquid Chromatography System.


We welcome expressions of interest for all projects. Find out more about sample submission and fees.
