 The UCLA Molecular Instrumentation Center (MIC) is a campus-wide, state-of-the-art core facility that enables the use of modern instrumentation in molecular characterizations. The purpose of the MIC is to meet the needs of the UCLA scientific community by providing all aspects of technical support in the application of modern instrumentation to solve problems in cutting-edge scientific research. The MIC is housed within and managed through the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.   MIC professional staff is responsible for operating, maintaining, and upgrading the equipment and training users.  The UCLA Molecular Instrumentation Center (MIC), managed through the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, encompasses four major areas: Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics, X-ray Diffraction, and Materials Characterization.
