Logo ZMBH Welcome to the Core Facility for Mass Spectrometry & Proteomics (CFMP) at the ZMBH


Our mission is to provide researchers of the Heidelberg Life Science Campus state-of-the-art high-performance mass spectrometry services. These services include all aspects of protein characterization and qualitative and quantitative proteomics:

- Protein identification from 1D and 2D-gels
- Quantification based on label-free (spectral counting, peptide intensities, MaxQuant-LFQ) and isotope labeling (SILAC & reductive dimethyl labeling) techniques 
- Detection and localization of posttranslational modifications (PTMs)
- Deciphering the interactome of target proteins








Established procedures allow the exploratory analysis of the protein content of cells and organisms and their temporal qualitative and quantitative changes that accompany development, reaction to environmental impacts and pathophysiological processes. Targeted proteomics strategies of high accuracy and sensitivity, such as multiple reaction monitoring (MRM), have been set up for quantitative analysis of known protein networks. Furthermore, the conformation of proteins can be analyzed using amide hydrogen exchange (HDX) mass spectrometry, which allows the analysis of protein mechanics, protein-protein interaction interfaces and ligand-induced allosteric conformational changes.

News from the core facility - public presentation
On February 23rd 2017 from 2 - 3.30 pm we will present to you in short talks recent things happening in our core facility. This includes new methods & services, a new electronic sample submission (iLab) system and a new pricing model. The event will take place in the ZMBH - room 001 at the ground floor and is open to anyone interested.

A detailed schedule will be published here soon.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.
