The MSPP platform in the BPMP laboratory is one of the four sites of the Proteomic Pole of Montpellier (PPM). This structure, labeled proteomics platform by GIS IBiSA nationwide, also has the label “Grand Equipment For Technological Evolution and Science” (GePEToS ) in the Languedoc -Roussillon. At the institutional level, MSPP is labeled as a regional proteomic platform by INRA.

MSPP has a high level of instrumentation in mass spectrometry and robotics, as well as the appropriate infrastructure to support projects as classical proteomics (large-scale protein identification) to more specialized levels (large-scale and targeted protein quantification, identification of post- translational modifications).

MSPP is widely open to the community: over the 2009-2013 period, the platform supported more than a hundred projects, half of them outside of the region (France and International) , both through delivery activities and collaborations, including joint response to request for proposals with recruitment of specialized staff. The whole activity has been approved until 2012 to the Quality Assurance ISO 9001:2008 and is currently undergoing certification (in 2014) with an expanded scope to the whole PPM perimeter.

Since its introduction in 1995, the scope of the concept of proteome has experienced successive and profound changes both with regard to the investigation that the technologies implemented levels.
The objective of MSPP is to make available to its internal and external partners a high level of expertise in mass spectrometry in the following fields:
- Protein identification
- Molecular characterization of post-translational modifications
- Protein quantification.

MSPP has two complementary missions which are (i) a technological watch (ii) reception and training. MSPP brings its expertise to the teams for the development of collaborative programs and ensures the transfer of these developments at the platform.
