Capability & Support

The Bioanalytical Mass Spectrometry Facility (BMSF), at UNSW's upper and lower campus sites, provide advanced mass spectrometric research capabilities. The BMSF staff maintain an up-to-date range of instruments for many types of analysis. They also provide access to their expertise as measurement scientists to either undertake analysis for you or support your research by training you or your research staff/students to operate the mass spectrometers and separation devices in the facility.

If your research requires ongoing support from a BMSF scientist, where significant intellectual input is sought in achieving research outcomes, the BMSF may propose a collaborative arrangement. Collaborative assistance may involve extensive participation in experiment design, method development, data analysis and interpretation. Many researchers who use the BMSF seek assistance in writing parts of their research grants in order to support the access costs of using the equipment.
