The Staff of Mass Spectrometry Services welcomes you!

Dr. Kari Basso – Director of Mass Spectrometry Services

We will be closed July 4 and July 5th 2024 for the holiday!

Chick Here to Take a Virtual tour of MSREC! 

Mission:  To provide comprehensive mass spectrometry support in an open learning environment.

  • 100% Analysis by MSREC
    • MSREC prepares the samples, runs the samples, performs bioinformatics, statistics etc
  • Co-Project Analysis
    • Student or post-doc has some level of involment.
    • Flexible on the student contribution
  • 100% Student run
    • After training the student or post-doc acquires all their data independently and process their own data.
    • Of course we are here to help as needed!

UF MSREC got a new Mass Spec from Santa!!!!

  • The new Orbitrap Exploris GC has been installed and we are accepting samples.  High-Resolution GC-MS for the first time!   30,000 resolution at m/z 200 with DIP/DEP. Tracefinder 5.2 for quantitation, Compound Discoverer 3.3 for untargeted metabolomics, the Wiley MS Flavors/Fragrances database, and the 2020 NIST Database.

Welcome to the University of Florida Department of Chemistry Mass Spectrometry Research and Education Center.

Our goal is to provide a valuable resource to complex research needs through access to a wide variety of mass spectrometry instruments, bioinformatic tools and highly trained staff. We offer both routine services and advanced research based projects. Please contact Dr. Basso (fkn Kari. B Green-Church) for information on samples or projects. We look forward to serving your mass spectrometry needs.  A list of just some of our services is described below.  See MSREC Services for more detailed information.

  • Accurate Mass
  • Analysis of Intact Large Biomolecules
  • Proteomics
    • Modification Analysis (PTM, mutations etc)
    • Shotgun Analysis
    • Protein Complex (IP)
    • Label Free Quantitation
    • SILAC
    • TMT Labeling
    • Targeted Proteomics
    • Discovery Proteomics
  • Metabolomics
    • Targeted Metabolomics
    • Discovery Metabolomics
  • Lipidomics
  • GC-MS
  • LC-MS and LC-MS/MS
  • Polymer Analysis
  • Training/Self Operation
  • Sample Preparation


  • MSREC is now offering TMT Labeling for advanced quantitative proteomics!

  • Introducing ion-mobility capabilities!!  MSREC has received NIH funding from the S10 High End Instrumentation program (NIH 1S10OD030250-01A1) to purchase a Bruker timsTOF Pro2 trapped ion mobility quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer with parallel accumulation serial fragmentation (PASEF) for 4D Omics!

Did you know we have instruments available for self operation?!

  • The Autoflex MALDI and Agilent TOF are all available for self operation after training.
