    1. Do I have to run the sample myself?

You do not have to run the sample yourself. One of our research scientists will run the sample for you, which will also help to ensure proper setup and troubleshooting.

    1. Can I get training on the instrument?

Only graduate students who will be working on a project that requires intensive use of an instrument can be trained. To discuss training on an instrument, call the PPF at 494-6540 and talk with Kevin or Dorota.

    1. How do I schedule an instrument?

Once you have been trained on an instrument and are capable of running samples yourself, you can schedule an instrument by using the online tool, Resource Allocation Tracking (RAT) by clicking

    1. How should I prepare my sample for:
      1. Two dimensional gels
      2. N-terminal sequencing
      3. Mass spec

To see how a sample should be prepared for its corresponding analysis, click on the appropriate section under the Services link for Amino Acid Analysis, 2-D Gels, N-terminal Protein Sequencing or Mass Spectrometry.

    1. How much sample do you need?

Sample requirements vary depending on the type of analysis that your sample requires. Please look under the appropriate section in the Services link to determine how much sample you need for a given analysis or instrument.

    1. What is your turn around time on my sample?

Turn around times are generally 1 week for amino acid analysis, 1-2 weeks for mass spectrometry, 1 week for N-terminal protein sequencing, and 2-3 weeks for 2-D gels. These turn around times can vary, however, depending on the number of samples that are submitted.

    1. Is there a Proteomics Interest Group on campus that I can connect with?

A Proteomics Interest Group has been discussed, and there has been some preliminary interest expressed by faculty around campus. If you are interested in such a group, please contact Charles Buck, Director of Operations for Bindley Bioscience Center at or call #42208.
