Proteomics Facility

The 1,900 sq. ft. Temple Proteomics Research Facility provides accessible proteomics capability for biological and biomedical research.  This research facility has state-of-the-art instrumentation and is supported by staff with expertise in proteomics, tissue microanalysis and relevant bioinformatics.  Services provided include expression profiles, protein identification, posttranslational modification, characterization, isolation of individual cells from tissues, protein and peptide separations, capillary electrophoresis and multidimensional protein identification (MudPIT).  Using a variety of techniques, the facility is capable of generating high fidelity data for biomarker discovery, drug targets and studies on the pathogenesis of disease.  Major equipment includes:

  • Bruker autoflex mass TOF/TOF mass spectrometer
  • Bruker HCT ion trap mass spectrometer coupled with Agilent nonoLC system
  • Etlan Maldi-TOF Pro
  • Shimadzu Xcise automated robotic system for gel processing
  • Applied Biosystem Voyager workstation MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer
  • Amersham Biosciences ETTAN DIGE 2D gel electrophoresis system and Multiphor 2D gel analysis system
  • Beckman Coulter MDQ capillary system with laser induced fluorescence detector
  • Photodiode array detector and Finnigan LCQ mass spectrometer
  • Arcturus Veritas laser capture microdissection system
  • Various HPLC systems with photodiode and scanning fluorescence detectors
