Research Services

Due to the critical nature of the mass spectrometry, the facility has been designed to the highest standards with individual cubicles per machine, maintaining a constant temperature with minimal variation. The HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Cooling) system runs with N+1 redundancy to maintain operation at all times and the room layouts are also designed to reduce noise and vibrations. The machines runs 24/7.

Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

Protein-protein interactions to generate comprehensive protein interactomes.
Drug-protein interactions.
Quantitative expression proteomics for the relative and comparative quantitative analysis of global proteomes.
Monitoring the role of post-translational modifications in cell signalling pathways.

One Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Velos and one Thermo Scientific Q Exactive Standard MS system, both with Agilent Technologies 1200 Series HPLC systems are available as part of the fee-per-service resources at CeMM or through collaborative projects.
