What We Offer
Expert Consulting and ‘Omics Services
At Spectrus, we take pride in being a flexible, accountable, and resourceful CRO provider for our clients’ mass spectrometry needs. Explore our solutions, instrumentation, and technology below.
Consulting Services and Method Design
Our clients have direct access to experience and insight from highly specialized experts in proteomics and mass spectrometry. Upfront consultation is invaluable for determining whether mass spec can provide useful answers, what method will generate relevant data, and how to structure the project effectively. Ongoing communication throughout each project ensures a successful outcome.
Quality and Expertise Are Essential: Having method design and sample processing done properly the first time saves money and keeps projects on track.
Cutting-Edge Sample-Processing Technology
We perform sample processing in-house using sensitive chromatography and high-resolution mass spectrometry instrumentation. Our clients rely on us for utmost precision and quality control in handling their samples. We run an efficient lab to provide a timely turnaround on samples.
Rigorous Data Analysis and Actionable Insights
Our data transformation and statistical analyses tools ensure the results provided are accurate and meaningful. Our lead scientists bring an experienced eye to interpreting data and presenting the findings in a clear, useable way. Spectrus’ clients have certainty in the quality and relevance of their data and appreciate the ability to verify and validate findings from other data sources.
