Swansea University has long been established as a centre of excellence for mass spectrometry, with the siting of the Royal Society Research Unit here in the 1970s followed by the Mass Spectrometry Research Unit, the EPSRC National Mass Spectrometry Service Centre in the 1980s and now the EPSRC UK National Mass Spectrometry Facility.

About

Swansea University has long been established as a centre of excellence for mass spectrometry, a discipline that involves the ionization of a sample to produce either positive or negative ions, which are then accelerated in a vacuum system and the mass of the intact molecule determined. In addition, the masses of fragments produced during the ionisation processes can be determined to give structural information.

Within the Institute of Mass Spectrometry at Swansea University's Medical School, there are three main strands:

  • Swansea Postgraduate Education Centre for Training and Reserach in Analytical Mass Spectrometry (SpectraLMS)  
  • Research at the Institute of Mass Spectrometry
  • EPSRC UK National Mass Spectrometry Facility (NMSF)
