What types of samples do you accept?
- We accept all kinds of samples. Some examples are: whole tissue, plasma, cell line, gel bands, purified protein, synthetic peptide, and formalin fixed tissue.
- When shipping gel bands, what is the best solution for them to be in?
- 50mM AmBic.
- What is the minimum amount of samples needed when doing a comparative study in order to receive a meaningful statistical analysis?
- It is dependent upon whether you are using cell lines, animal models or human samples. Please contact Dr. Mobley,
, to get a more precise answer.
- Who do I contact in order to find out who the samples need to be delivered to?
- The lab manager, Brandon Young. His contact information is located at the bottom of the purchase order form.
- What is the best way to bring over whole tissue?
- The tissue should be snap frozen in liquid nitrogen.
- When sending over gel bands, is there anything that should be brought along with it?
- Yes. The two most important things are a picture of the gel before the bands were cut out and a blank gel band cut out from the gel to run alongside your samples.
- Can you sequence proteins? What would be the cost? How long would this take?
- Yes we can sequence proteins using the DeNovo sequencing approach. The cost can be found on our services webpage. For DeNovo sequencing it would take about a month for the whole process.
- Regarding formalin fixed tissue, how many sections are needed and what approximate thickness should the tissue be?
- We would need 2-4 sections at 5-8 micron thickness of similar size to have enough material from formalin fixed tissues.
- Can you identify specific phosphorylated residues?
