Welcome to MZ 2.0 !




The core facility, MZ 2.0, is part of the Laboratoire de Technologie Avancée, and is managed by a steering committee formed by :

-       Prof. Christoph Renner (vice-dean of the Faculty of sciences),

-       Prof. Howard Riezman (scientific director),

-       Dr. Emmanuel Varesio (executive director),

-       Dr. Sophie Michalet (manager),

-       M. Bernard Schaller (administrator of the Faculty of sciences),

-       Prof. Urs Schaltegger, (Earth and environmental sciences section, deputy : Prof. Vera Slaveykova),

-       Prof. Nicolas Winssinger, (section of Chemistry and Biochemistry),

-       Prof. Robbie Loewith (section of Biology),

-       Prof. Serge Rudaz (section of Pharmaceutical sciences, deputy : Prof. Jean-Luc Wolfender),

-       Prof. Clément Mazet (section of Chemistry and Biochemistry).

The MZ 2.0 service platform is devoted to help researchers answering structural and quantitative questions by using mass spectrometry technologies.

We offer a wide range of MS analyses from inorganic area such as elemental speciation or multielement quantitation to organic area including studies of organic compounds, polymers, supramolecular systems or biopolymers.
