The Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Core is available on both a shared use and full service basis. Investigators should contact the manager, Gabriel Gugiu at 626-256-HOPE (4673) to discuss the experimental strategy for any sample analysis prior to sample submission.
The facility is available to City of Hope and Beckman Research Institute users on a shared use basis. Investigators wishing to use the facility on a shared use or collaborative basis should contact Dr. Gugiu for more information.
How to Prepare Samples:
Please see the guidelines for preparing samples in order to obtain a successful analysis. Direct any concerns to the Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics manager, Gabriel Gugiu at 626-256-HOPE (4673) prior to sample submission.
With few exceptions (quantitation standards), it is not necessary for the investigator to provide supplies for analyses and projects carried out by the Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Core. The cost of these components is built into the fee schedule.
The turn-around time for the mass analysis of a single sample is one to two days for nanoelectrospray MS on a simple mixture and 3-4 days for more complex samples. For samples submitted for LC/MS/MS analysis with database search, typical turn-around time is about two weeks (backlog dependent). For other samples, investigators will be apprised of the anticipated time required to obtain results of the requested analyses on a per sample basis when experimental details are discussed with the facility director or manager.
