The Biomolecular Analysis Facility  provides a range of services for analyzing peptides and proteins using instruments and expertise not available to individual laboratories in the former Biomedical Mass Spectrometry Laboratory. The former Shared Instrumention Core is now part of the Biomolecular Analysis Facility and provides a range of user operated instruments and chromatography services. DNA Sciences is now a separate core.

The Facility is located on the first floor of Pinn (formerly Jordan) Hall (old section),  phone 434-924-2356.

The Facility operates on a fee for service basis, detailed in the section on rates. The Cancer Center may provide a copayment to reduce the cost of services to its members. Rates for outside clients are higher. In addition to user fees, the Facility is supported by School of Medicine and receives grants for instrumentation from the state Equipment Trust Fund and NIH, and the School of Medicine. The mass spectrometry laboratory was started and supported for several years by a grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation.

Users should acknowledge the support from the School of Medicine e.g.

“This work used (service and/or instrument name) in the Biomolecular Analysis Facility which is supported by the University of Virginia School of Medicine.”
