Equipment

Our lab is equipped with the latest instrumentation for high end mass spectrometry. We have two LTQ-Orbitrap hybrid mass spectrometers (Thermo Fisher) and three hybrid quadrupole-Orbitrap mass spectrometer:

These instruments combine excellent mass accuracy with a high dynamic range, fast sequencing speed and high sensitivity. Peptide separation is performed on-line by nanoflow liquid chromatography using Proxeon and Eksigent HPLC systems. Our proteomics pipeline is completed by hard- and software for efficient data processing such as a MASCOT server (Matrixscience) and MaxQuant (Juergen Cox, Matthias Mann lab, Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry). In addition, we have a fully equipped molecular cell biology lab for all kinds of biological experiments.
