Arizona Proteomics Consortium

The Arizona Proteomics Consortium at the University of Arizona provides bioanalytical expertise and instrumentation to UA faculty and to scientists outside of the University on a fee-for-service basis. Our state-of-the-art facility was created to advance basic and biomedical research in Arizona. We have expertise in peptide and small molecule mass spectrometry, chromatography, sample preparation, electrophoresis, protein purification, and protein assays. Please review our website for details and contact our staff to see how we can be of assistance.


 proteomics work flow

The completion of genomic sequences for several model organisms and, most recently, the human genome, has opened many new possibilities for biologists to use genomic sequences to predict all of the proteins that can be present in an organism. Thus proteomics, the study of the protein complement of the genome, has become increasingly important because of its diverse and non-static nature beyond the gene level.

At the University of Arizona, exceptional infrastructure and collegiality have come together to build proteomics on campus. Under the sponsorship of the UA Cancer Center, BIO5, the UA Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center, the Arizona Proteomics Consortium provides analytical services, technology development, and hands-on training. We thank all our contributing units and are very excited about the future of proteomics at the University of Arizona. With over 6000 campus-wide analyses performed yearly, we are confident in our personnel and in our resources. I welcome you to our website and we look forward to integrating our proteomic capabilities into your various research programs.

Please feel free to contact us any time with questions, suggestions or input.
