Sample Submission Guidelines
Samples can be brought to 250 Biomedical Research Tower, along with a filled out sample submission form, weekdays between 8 am and 5 pm. We have a refrigerator, freezer and dry box for samples that require special storage. It is preferred if samples are submitted neat or dried down, typically ug amounts is all that is needed.
Biological samples are handled differently and require different conditions. Salts, buffers and surfactants suppress ionization and need to be removed for mass spec analysis. When possible, it is advised to dialyze the sample into nanopure or at least distilled water prior to submission. We also have several de-salting techniques for proteins and oligonucleotides available in our facility. List all salts, buffers and detergents the protein or oligonucleotide is in, or has recently been in. For optimal results, please discuss your project with Dr. Somogyi prior to submission. Certain classes of proteins need to be handled differently than others, the more we know about your system, the better the data. Protein samples for ESI are prepared in 50% acetonitrile 50% water with 0.1% formic acid. Slightly acidic conditions are necessary to facilitate protonation
We CANNOT run samples that are in aromatic solvents like benzene, toluene, or solvents such as DMSO and DMF.
Electrospray and MALDI samples are prepared in Methanol, Acetonitrile, water, THF, chloroform. We will acidify the sample with acetic or formic acid unless you indicate the sample is acid sensitive.
Turn around times vary between 1 day to a week depending on sample load, instrument availability and type of analysis. We will email you when the results are ready to be picked up.
