is a core facility in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta.

The IBD provides a range of mass spectrometry and proteomic services such as protein identification and molecular weight determination. Additionally we also perform Amino Acid Analysis and Peptide Synthesis. Links to these services can be found on the top menu.

The IBD now provides some of the services previously provided by the former Alberta Peptide Institute (API) and DNA Core Services.

On site we can also offer HPLC services and provide access to a 2G-gel electrophoresis equipment. For these, please contact Jack Moore for further information.
