The Tulane Proteomics Core is undergoing a soft opening to provide mass spec technology and shotgun proteomics analysis resources. Currently, our focus is on protein/peptide identification and quantification. These services include a selection of sample preparation and instrument operations to support the Tulane community at Tulane. We strive to eventually expand our Core Facility and offer our assistance to external institutions.
Instrumentation utilized by the facility include the Thermo Scientific Q-Exactive HF-X Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap and the TSQ Altis Triple Quadrupole mass spectrometers as well as the Shimadzu Nexera XR HPLC. The instruments are operated by Proteomics Core Facility personnel only.
