Under the auspices of the Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry Facility (LSMSF), the NERC maintains three Facility nodes for the provision of organic and light stable isotope ratio mass spectrometry to the UK life sciences community, formerly designated: the Organic Mass Spectrometry Facility (OMSF) located within the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol, the Life Sciences Community Stable Isotope Facility (LSCSIF) located within the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC) at East Kilbride and the 15N Stable Isotope Facility (15NSIF) located within the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) Lancaster located at Lancaster University. Activities of the Facility are overseen by the LSMSF steering committee which convenes biannually for status reporting, application grading and strategic considerations. Each of the three nodes offers a different portfolio of analytical techniques which UK based researchers may apply to use through NERC Services and Facilities by standard peer-review procedure. The subject areas and techniques supported by each node are summarised below.
