Sciex 5600+ Quadrapole-Tof Mass Spectrometer w/Eksigent nanoLC-Ultra 2D System
This instrument offers the hybrid capabilities for high resolution and high sensitivity profiling, characterization of compounds in complex mixtures, and also high selectivity and sensitivity for quantitation of compounds in complex mixtures by monitoring fragmentations transitions either in selected reaction monitoring (SRM) or multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) modes. With attomole sensitivity, this system is optimized for both quantitative proteomics profiling using either label free or isotope tagging methods (e.g. SILAC, iTRAQ) and quantitation of specific proteins (as peptide surrogates) from complex mixtures.Request Information
Sciex 4800 MALDI-TOF/TOF MS
The 4800 instrument is the primary instrument in the proteomics laboratory used for core services that require protein identification from single bands or spot from gels. The attomole sensitivity and high repetition laser for fast data collection make it the ideal option for protein identification including protein complexes captured by affinity methods. This instrument is also the primary system used for the rapid readout of enzyme assays and inhibitor screening studies.
