Mass Spectrometry (Centre commun de Spectrométrie de Masse) Analysis requests

The CCSM platform will close for summer holidays. Please bring us your last samples of the year before Tuesday 23rd July evening (day included).  Furthermore, please avoid to bring us too many samples at once, one or two days before the deadline, to let us time to finish your analyses before the closure. We will accept new samples from Tuesday 20th August.
The GC-MS is out of service for an indefinite period. The CCSM cannot analyse your samples by GC-MS now. If you need contact of other GC-MS platforms, please contact

How to request an analysis?

1) Prepare your sample at 1 mg/mL in a non-deuterated solvent. Instructions for solvents:

For direct injection MS and LC-MS: avoid DMF, DMSO, TEA and ionic liquid

For GC-MS: remove salts and water, no ionic liquid

This solution has to be in a screw vial with a PTFE coated septa without preslit. The CCSM lab can procure this kind of vial if needed.


2) Download the request sheet below (scroll down until the end of these instructions).

3) Fill the sheet following the guidelines below:

4) Save the request sheet in PDF format and send to

5) Refill one request sheet per sample. Drop the samples in the deposit rack located in the CCSM lab, ground floor of the Lederer building (1 rue Victor Grignard, Villeurbanne).

6) We analyze your samples, send you the results by e-mail and drop your sample back in the return rack if requested (see the request sheet guidelines).

7) The CCSM invoices each laboratory at the end of each calendar quarter. Prices are available on the intranet website of the University (part B.13, pages 6-10): Click here
