Equipment

  • One Waters Synapt G2 HDMS high definition mass spectrometer with ion mobility MS equipped with a Waters nanoAcquity 2D UHPLC system for high through-put proteomic, lipidomic and metabolomic analyses.
 
  • One Thermo Electron LTQ-FT hybrid linear ion trap - Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer equipped with an Eksigent 2D nanoflow LC system for high resolution macromolecule characterization.
 
  • Two Agilent 6520 Q-TOF mass spectrometers equipped with Agilent 1200 nanoflow LC system and for high through-put proteomic analyses.
 
  • One Agilent 6410 triple quadupole mass spectrometer equipped with an Agilent 1100 nanoflow LC system for LC/MS/MS analyses for accurate quantification. This system will be replaced in the near future with an Agilent 6490 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer with iFunnel technology equipped with a 1290 UHPLC system.
 
  • One Thermo Electron LCQ Deca ion-trap mass spectrometer modified for vacuum MALDI operation.
 
  • Sequest® and X!Tandem database search systems for Protein identification running on a 15 node computer cluster and a standalone versions of ProteinLynx Global Server.
 
  • Agilent 3100 OFFGEL Fractionator for protein fractionation with in-solution recovery. Uses a novel isoelectric focusing technique to achieve excellent pI-based fractionation.
 
  • GelFree 8100 Fractionation System for mass spectrometry sample preparation partitions complex protein mixtures into user-selectable liquid-phase molecular weight fractions. Intact protein molecular weight fractionation, isolation, and purification with liquid-phase recovery without band or spot cutting.
