Overview of Services

Established in 2016, the Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) Meyer Cancer Center Proteomics and Metabolomics Core Facility provides mass spectrometry based analysis of proteins, peptides, metabolites and other biochemical molecules.

The core facility is open to Weill Cornell Medicine users as well as external users from academic institutions and commercial enterprises.



  • Proteomics
    • Protein Identification
    • Protein Quantitation
      • Methods include: SILAC, TMT, Label-free, spiked standards, etc.
    • Post-Translational Modification (PTM)
      • Phosphorylation, ubiquitination, acetylation, N/C-term processing, etc.
  • Metabolomics
    • Targeted profiling of polar metabolites (Targeted detection of metabolites in a predefined panel, which includes many central metabolites. See the list HERE.)
    • Stable isotope tracing for polar metabolites (e.g. C13 glucose labeling)
      • Type 1: Tracing of selected metabolites (Up to 10 metabolite isotopologues from the panel can be specified. Please specify the metabolites and number of C13 using this TEMPLATE.)
      • Type 2: Full panel tracing (Exhaustive tracing of all detected metabolites. No need to know beforehand if a particular metabolite is labeled or not.) 
    • New method development (Usually user needs to provide standard compounds)
