Partners & Collaborators

We collaborate with over three dozen research groups from the Babraham Institute, Universities of Cambridge, Oxford, UCL, Glasgow, BBSRC, MRC, CRUK institutes, AstraZeneca, EU and USA.
Reagents in Lipidomics Facility

Analytical Approaches

Our equipment will enable the analysis of any biological chemical based on our fully established HPLC separation methods and the unique performance of Orbitrap Elite mass spectrometers which can carry out up to ten stages of tandem MS fragmentation and high resolution/accurate mass analysis at the same time.
