The Proteomics Unit is at the Biomedical Research Institute of A Coruña (INIBIC-CHUAC-UDC). It counts with all necessary facilities for the analysis of proteins at a small- and large-scale, including three mass spectrometers, liquid chromatographs, electrophoresis systems and instruments for immunoassay development and readout.
The Platform is fully equipped to perform high resolution shotgun proteomics experiments, using isotopic labeling strategies or label free quantification (LFQ) strategies and employing either data-dependent (DDA) or data-independent (DIA) acquisition methods. The services of the Unit involve all steps of this analysis, from sample preparation to data analysis, reporting and submission of results. The Unit personnel are highly specialized and have a vast experience offering tailored services to aid users from the experimental design step. The Unit has also infrastructure for targeted proteomics experiments for the quantification of specific protein panels by the Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) mass spectrometry technique. Finally, the Proteomics Unit has the equipment and expertise for the development and readout of ELISA or Luminex-based immunoassays, focusing on smaller numbers of protein targets.
FOR THOSE SERVICES IDENTIFIED AS OUTSTANDING, AT LEAST 20% OF THEIR CAPACITY IS OPEN UNDER COMPETITIVE ACCESS. SEE ANNEX 1 OF ACCESS PROTOCOL FOR DETAILS ON % OF OPENNESS FOR EACH SERVICE
