[Source: UA] – The University of Arizona’s shared, state-of-the-art research infrastructure is one of the ways scientists reduce costs while staying ahead of the curve in their respective research programs. Called “core facilities,” they make available the very latest in specific expertise and technology to UA scientists, and in some cases, academic and industry scientists statewide, nationally and internationally.
A $916,000 grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) has expanded the capacity of one of those core facilities—the Arizona Proteomics Consortium—by funding a new mass spectrometer, the LTQ Velos Orbitrap LC-MC/MS system and Advion Nanomate source. The NCRR, part of the National Institutes of Health, provides laboratory scientists and clinical researchers with the tools and training they need to understand, detect, treat and prevent a wide range of diseases.
