Expertise in mass spectrometry-based protein analysis and proteomics at Umeå University in collaboration with the Mass Spectrometry-based Proteomics Laboratory at the BMC in Uppsala and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Umeå.
A view into the ion source of a mass spectrometer shows the fine jet of an electrospray that generates ions of analyte molecules and transports them to the transfer path. The electrospray technique makes it possible to ionize many different compounds in the gas phase and to analyze them by mass spectrometry. It is widely used for many analytical applications, and it is an essential technique for the analysis of peptides and proteins in proteomics.
Collaboration with the Mass Spectrometry Proteomics Laboratory at the BMC Uppsala
Starting from 2019 the Mass Spectrometry Proteomics Laboratory at the BMC Uppsala and the KBC Proteomics Core Facility collaborate. The goal of this collaboration is improving the quality of the analytical applications and services by joining knowledge and access to analytical instrumentation, and offering researchers the best possible services. The KBC Proteomics Core Facility greatly appreciates this fantastic opportunity because the expertise at these two laboratories complements each other very well. For instance, the Mass Spectrometry Proteomics laboratory at the BMC Uppsala have profound experience in the analysis of human and animal samples, while the KBC Proteomics Core Facility have good knowledge in the analysis of plant samples.
