Analytical Biochemistry

The Analytical Biochemistry shared resource provides state-of-the-art chemistry services and expertise in mass spectrometry, chromatography, and analytical biochemistry. These three complementary specialties afford a center of expertise for a full range of chemical and biochemical services in support of the peer-reviewed research of Cancer Center investigators.

The Analytical Biochemistry shared resource offers sensitive and quantitative methods for determining important compounds in human urine, blood, or DNA.

The Analytical Biochemistry shared resource provides advice and assistance in the development of state-of-the-art chromatographic separations. The focus is on methods using gas chromatography (GC) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The chromatography specialist, Steven Carmella, will consult with Cancer Center investigators about method development or application of existing methods to analytical chemistry problems.
