Mass spectrometry (MS) is an analytical technique used for accurately measuring the mass-to-charge ratio of different molecules within the sample.
You can use MS to identify molecules within a mixture, study protein-protein interaction, detect impurities within a sample, and perform various assays. Mass spectrometry requires expensive equipment and well-honed expertise to be done correctly, this is why many companies and institutes contact CROs and academic core labs to do their MS projects.
Here are some of the best CROs and academic core labs for mass spectrometry in North America:
Located in Sherbrooke, Canada, PhenoSwitch Bioscience tops the list. Their fundamental belief is that mass spectrometry can accelerate and improve R&D while reducing costs, and should be easily accessible to everyone. They provide services like LC-MS, proteomics services, LC-MSMS, HPLC, lipidomics services, etc.
PhenoSwitch Bioscience uses Scispot to manage research projects, samples and inventory, all in one spot. With Scispot, PhenoSwitch templatizes its routine research, connects its company-wide data, and automates repetitive tasks.
