Advanced Proteomics Facility

The Dunn School of Pathology and the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry

The Advanced Proteomics Facility provides access to the latest proteomics tools, specifically cutting edge mass spectrometry. It is available to researchers in the South Parks Road science area and to external commercial users.

We have experience in protein identification, quantitative mass spectrometry (SILAC, label-free, dimethyl labelling, TMT) and characterisation methods for a range of post-translational modifications.

The facility is equipped with a wide range of mass spectrometry instrumentation, sample preparation technologies and data analysis software.

Mass Spectrometers and Sample Preparation Equipment

Bioinformatics software

Through our service provision and collaboration with researchers, we aim to continually develop and improve the advanced tools available for proteomics.



For further information regarding use of the facility, contact the acting facility director, Prof. Shabaz Mohammed (; 01865 613380).

Please always contact us prior to commencing a new project in order to discuss project aims and requirements.

External Work

We have a strong track record of working with biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. If you are a commercial organisation and are interested in the services or expertise of the Central Proteomics Facility, we would encourage you to contact Sally Sheard ( of Oxford University Consulting to discuss how we may be able to help you.

Online Resources

The Central Proteomics Facility Pipeline (CPFP) can be accessed using your CBRG login. The CPFP provides multiple search engines for data analysis, statistical analysis of proteomics data (False Discovery Rates) and tools for quantitative proteomics (LIBRA for iTRAQ/TMT, and ASAP ratio for SILAC). The proteomics pipeline also includes tools for comparing protein abundance in samples using label free quantitation. Please contact the facility if you wish to use this computational proteomics resource. To apply for a proteomics-sponsored CBRG account use this form.
