At SPARC BioCentre (Molecular Analysis), we apply state-of-the-art technologies, including mass spectrometry, amino acid analysis, and extracellular flux analysis by Seahorse, for the molecular characterization of biological systems. This includes identification and quantification of a broad range of large and small molecules including proteomes and proteins, and small molecule analytes such as peptides, metabolites, and measures of metabolism. SPARC is operated on a fee-for-service cost-recovery basis by an experienced team of scientists and technicians, with Dr. Michael Moran as our Scientific Director. We are happy to work with researchers from early consultation and planning phases, to delivery of data, data analysis, and preparation of publications and grant proposals.


The SPARC BioCentre (Molecular Analysis) is a proud member of the Pan-Canadian Proteomics Centre.
