Welcome to MSCF

The Mass Spectrometry Core Facility (MSCF) is housed within the Molecular Bioscience Building (G08) on the Darlington Campus. In mid-2014 the MSCF will be relocating to The Hub, the new building constructed for the Charles Perkins Centre.  The MSCF provides a 'research hotel', training and contract research services to domestic and international researchers.
The MSCF was first established in July 2003 and was previously known as the Sydney University Proteome Research Unit (SUPRU).  The change in name reflects that mass spectrometry is no longer restricted proteomic and it has become an essential tool across the board in life science research.  The core aims of the MSCF:

  • Undertake and facilitate high quality mass spectrometry based research
  • Provide access to world class mass spectrometers and develop innovative applications for life scientists
  • Provide high quality training to undergraduate/postgraduate students and researchers
