R. Marshall Wilson Mass Spectrometry Facility

The R. Marshall Wilson Mass Spectrometry Facility at the University of Cincinnati is a fully functional organic and biological mass spectrometry laboratory. We handle all types of samples with two major exceptions: (i) proteomics samples are handled through the UC Proteomics Laboratory at UC Vontz Center and (ii) we do not have ICP-MS capabilities for now. We welcome and service all customers whether within the University of Cincinnati (any school or department) or outside the University (both academic and industrial customers); we have customers from many parts of the United States. We handle non-routine analyses involving both identifications and quantitation. We have experience in small molecule identification, pharmacokinetics, lipids, metabolomics, organometallics, surfactants, polymer characterization, to name a few.

The R. Marshall Wilson Mass Spectrometry Facility is one of two laboratories that comprise the Rieveschl Laboratories for Mass Spectrometry. The other is Limbach Research Group involved with the structural investigation of RNA, characterization of ribonucleoprotein complexes, and identification of post-transcriptionally modified nucleosides in RNA. We are the "point-lab" for also outside inquiries and will happily redirect your request to the appropriate lab if necessary.
