Sample Form

Please tell us the specific specie(s) related to your sample(s), you can use the second box to make more than one selection, or enter by hand in the comments box below.
NOTE: We use subsets of the Uniref100 database. (If you require a different database, please let us know and we will download, format, and apply it).

This section is very important as all proteomics data require the correct database to work (as an example: if you have an overexpressed human protein in an E.coli system, you need to let us know, and we will then make a dual specific database for your study).

Is your sample in a buffer?

If submitting a gel or gel bands, have you included a blank and a positive control such as BSA of 25-100ng (MS analysis of controls are run at no charge and are highly recommended)?

Additional Notes: Prices include the running of standards and blanks, spectral preprocessing for initial database searches and basic reporting. Sample preparation, additional data interpretation with analysis of data beyond the standard matching algorithms for protein ID are performed at an additional cost as outlined in the services section.

Please submit the form above in as much detail as possible to allow us to give you the most appropriate analysis, and we will get back to you with an estimate of total cost and details and suggestions for additional sample preparation if needed. If we do not get a confirmation email back to you within 10 minutes, or if you feel there has been a delay or problem with running your samples, please follow up by an email to the director at:
