We have shared access to the following instruments which are owned and maintained by VBCF:
- Thermo Q-Exactive HF
- Thermo Orbitrap Velos Pro
- Waters Synapt G2-Si HDMS
- Sciex QTrap 5500
- Sciex MALDI-TOF/TOF 4800
Most of the mass spectrometers are coupled to Thermo Scientific UltiMate 3000 RSLCnano systems for reliable, high performance separation of the samples. For more detailed information on the different instruments please visit the website of the IMP mass spectrometry & protein chemistry facility here.
Data analysis and software
Based on the instrument used and the application we apply different software packages and search engines. Currently these include Proteome Discoverer, Mascot, Sequest, MSAmanda, and MaxQuant. For downstream statistical analysis we use Perseus and R.
