Beyond making available state-of-the-art,Â facilities and services, the laboratory enables education, methods development, and new applications development, designed to meet the rapidly evolving needs of researchers. Due to the essential information that mass spectrometry provides to researchers in the fields ofÂ life sciences andÂ medicine,Â the laboratory serves as an âintellectual watering holeâ at the crossroads of diverse disciplines.
At this time, we have in operation,Â one hybrid quadrupole-time of flight, one iontrap, one MALDI-TOF and one QTOF. Software resources include instrument-specific packages;Â MassLynx, PLGS, Progenesis, BioAnalyst, FlexAnalysis; proteomics software Mascot,Â Scaffold.Â
Routine mass spec and proteomic services include molecular weight determination,Â LC-MS, high resolution MS, protein identification by proteolytic digest, nano LC-MS/MS and database search, standardÂ column capillary chromatography, and more. Please contact Dr. Virginie SjoelundÂ to discuss custom work such as complex proteomic analysis, quantitation, de novo peptide sequencing, new application development, and other projects.
