Proteomics Resource Facility
The Proteomics Shared Resource Facility (Proteomics Resource) associated with the Canary Center is a shared resource that supports Canary Center Members, Associate Members, and Canary Foundation Science Teams. The facility supports the mission of the Center to foster research leading to the development of blood tests and molecular imaging approaches to detect and localize early cancers.
The facility houses mass spectrometry (MS), liquid chromatography (LC), and sample preparation systems employed primarily for biomarker discovery and verification studies. Stanford researchers with interests in cancer early detection seeking access to the resources available in the facility should do so in collaboration with Canary Center Members. At present, the Proteomics Resource supports four mass spectrometers including: (1) Thermo LTQ Orbitrap Elite; (2) Thermo LTQ Orbitrap Velos; (3) Agilent 6490 triple quadrupole; and (4) AB SCIEX 5800 TOF/TOF (MALDI) systems. Other instruments available in the shared resource include an Agilent AssayMAP Bravo liquid-handing robotic system, FortéBio Octet 384 system for biomolecular interaction analysis, as well as several systems for peptide and protein fractionation and sample preparation.
