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.

Can I get training on the instrument?

Only graduate students who will be working on a project that requires intensive use of an instrument will be trained. To discuss training on an instrument, call the PPF at 494-6540 and speak with Uma Aryal or Vicki Hedrick.

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).

How much sample do you need?

Sample requirements vary depending on the type of analysis that your sample requires. Please contact the facility staff  to determine how much sample you need for a given analysis or instrument.

What is your turnaround time on my sample?

Turn-around times are generally 1 week for amino acid analysis, 5-10 days for mass spectrometry analysis, 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.

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 Uma Aryal, director of Purdue Proteomics Facility, at or call 494-4960 or Thomas Sors, chief scientific liaison for the Bindley Bioscience Center, at or call 494-1678.
