Proteomics submission guidelines

The proteomics service uses two MS systems a nano LC/MS/MS and a MALDI TOF TOF to perform peptide mapping, protein ID and post-translational modification analysis from tryptic digests or purified peptides submitted by members of the chemistry department using the sample submission form below. Elisabete Pires runs this service and will be very happy to discuss how it works or the applicability of the techniques in the context of your research. Please contact her in the first instance to discuss your proteomics needs if you have not used the service before.

For all nanoLC/MS/MS or MALDI TOF TOF analysis complete a 'proteomics' sample submission form.
