Advice on protein analysis procedures
If you are not sure which procedure is required for analysis of your sample leave the “required analysis” section blank and we can discuss this with you.
Optimising your sample preparation
Since sample quality and sample pre-processing is crucial for the success of downstream protein / proteomics analysis, we strongly recommend discussing with us the procedure for sample preparation prior to sending your samples to the Centre for Protein Research.
Due to the heterogeneity of proteins and their physico-chemical properties protein / proteomics analyses still have a low level of automation and include various manual processing steps. Although we will optimise sample pre-processing for each experiment individually, we cannot guarantee the validity of results. However, we do charge for all analyses conducted by the Centre for Protein Research.
