Bioanalysis and Omics

Formerly the Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility (PMF)

ARC-BIO serves as an enabling resource for research and development programs at Colorado State University. We strive to build mass spectrometry instrumentation capabilities and expertise that exceed the normal resources of individual research programs, and make those technologies available as a shared resource.

Place service requests, provide required approvals, and monitor progress of projects:

ARC-BIO aims to provide an environment rich in expertise and educational resources, and to foster collaboration across the CSU community and beyond.
