Do I have to run the sample myself?

One of our research scientists can run samples for you. However, if you have a large number of samples or require frequent use of the facility, we can train you to prepare and run your samples. We will also train you in database searches using different search tools, data filtering, and other downstream bioinformatic analyses, so that you can run proteomics experiments with minimum or no supervision.

Can I get training on the instrument?

Yes, students and postdocs who will be working on a project that requires frequent use of an instrument can be trained. To discuss training on an instrument, contact Uma Aryal or Vicki Hedrick.

How do I schedule an instrument and services?

If you have been trained on an instrument, you can schedule usage in iLab. Any request for services can also be submitted through the iLab system.

How much sample do I need?

Sample requirements vary depending on the type of analysis that you require. 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?

Turnaround times can vary. Depending on the number of samples that are submitted and type of analysis required, turnaround usually runs 7 to 10 days.

Is there a Proteomics interest group on campus that I can connect?

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.
