John L. Holmes Mass Spectrometry Facility

University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario
What the facility does

Supporting research in science, engineering and medicine and offering services to numerous external users

Area(s) of Expertise

The John L. Holmes Mass Spectrometry Facility routinely provides accurate mass measurements on organic samples ionized by electron ionization (EI) and electrospray ionization (ESI) on its Concept and Q-TOF instruments. With the addition of the new Biological and Proteomic Analysis Facility, added in 2015, we are now able to routinely analyse biological samples on an ETD orbitrap mass spectrometer, too.
