MS-Insight Ltd is a Mass Spectrometry Training and Consultancy business, targeted at providing cutting edge nano LC and mass spectrometry solutions to biological problems. The company directors, Duncan Smith, John Griffiths and Yvonne Connolly, have extensive knowledge and experience in analytical science acquired over more than 50 years both in industry and academia.

The core aims of the business are firstly to deliver advanced training in;

    1) the analysis of post translational modifications, in particular phosphorylation, acetylation, ubiquitination and SUMOylation.


    2) techniques for relative protein expression analysis such as those incorporating iTRAQ/TMT/mTRAQ tags or SILAC isotopic labels, as well as label-free approaches.

 We also run an Introduction to Biological Mass Spectrometry course aimed specifically at scientists new to mass spectrometry or those thinking of moving into the field, and, in conjunction with Separation Science, have developed a suite of on-line training modules.

Secondly, the consultancy branch of the business offers expert advice on a range of mass spectrometry-related issues such as troubleshooting (both mass spectrometry and nanoflow liquid chromatography), method development and new instrument purchase/assessment. 

In addition, we have recently introduced a technical authoring service for a range of projects such as manuscript preparation, editing and submission, abstract writing, proofreading and expert advice on conference presentations (Poster and Oral).

Located in the South Manchester area, historically the UK’s mass spectrometry heartland, classroom-based courses are held throughout the year either at a local training centre, or by prior arrangement on customer sites.
