Note 2: includes protein extraction from 10 tissue samples (5 control, 5 treated), protein quantitation and trypsin digestion, peptide purification using ZIP tips, 90min DDA-PASEF (Data-Dependent Acquisition) LCMS+MS/MS gradient on Bruker timsTOF-PRO, and quantitative data analyses using PEAKS software.

Client processed Biological Quintuplet


Note 3: Center provides reagents for protein extraction, quantitation, and trypsin digestion.  Client performs all sample processing and provides purified (C18 tip processed) peptides. Center acquires DDA-PASEF on timsTOF-PRO. Client completes all the data analyses (following training).
