The Advanced Proteomics Facility provides access to the latest proteomics tools, specifically cutting edge mass spectrometry. It is available to researchers in the South Parks Road science area and to external commercial users.

We have experience in protein identification, quantitative mass spectrometry (SILAC, label-free, dimethyl labelling, TMT) and characterisation methods for a range of post-translational modifications.

The facility is equipped with a wide range of mass spectrometry instrumentation, sample preparation technologies and data analysis software.

Mass Spectrometers and Sample Preparation Equipment

Bioinformatics Software

Through our service provision and collaboration with researchers, we aim to continually develop and improve the advanced tools available for proteomics.

For further information regarding use of the facility, contact the facility director, Prof. Shabaz Mohammed ( or Svenja Hester ( or by phone on 01865 613220.

Please always contact us prior to commencing a new project in order to discuss project aims and requirements.

Sample Submission

Prior to submission please discuss with Svenja or Prof. Mohammed. Please use this form for submitting samples.

The sample drop-off (appointment necessary) point is at the side door closest to South Parks Road.

External Work

We have a strong track record of working with biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. If you are a commercial organisation and are interested in the services or expertise of the Advanced Proteomics Facility, we would encourage you to contact Sally Sheard ( of Oxford University Consulting to discuss how we may be able to help you.
