Equipment & data analysis


We have shared access to the following instruments which are owned and maintained by VBCF:

  • Thermo Q-Exactive HF & Q-Exactive HF-X
  • Thermo Fusion Lumos
  • Waters Synapt G2-Si HDMS

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 application and the research question we apply different software packages and search engines. Currently these include MaxQuant, Proteome Discoverer, MSAmanda, pLink, and Skyline. For downstream statistical analysis we use Perseus and R.
