Submitting samples to this core implies acceptance of the terms of service stated below in the Authorship and Grant Assistance sections.
Once submitted, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions for scheduling sample dropoff. The Proteomics Core Facility accepts samples from all CU Anschutz researchers and from external users, as capacity permits.
Please contact the facility before you send any samples to discuss your needs and to determine the best approach to analyze your samples. The most important goal is for us to get a solid understanding of your aims and expectations. Don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Please note that it is very difficult to estimate the total cost of a custom service until a number of factors are known. This includes, but is not limited to:
We will clearly communicate cost via email prior to analysis and are glad to provide formal quotes upon request.
After analysis, you will receive all data in Excel spreadsheet format (.xlsx). This tabular data will contain protein and peptide identifications reported as both peptide spectral matches (PSMs) and AUC intensity. Data can also be provided in Scaffold (Proteome Software) by request.
Additional data analysis, including figure generation and statistical analyses, can be performed for an additional cost of $120 per hour of analysis. Bioinformatics can also be performed through the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource (BBSR).
RAW data will be stored on in-house file servers for and maintained for at least one year from the date of acquisition. If longer-term storage is required, RAW data files can be provided via Dropbox upon request. Alternatively, RAW files can be submitted to the ProteomeXchange Consortium online data repository for a fee (please inquire for details).
We are very happy to provide letters of support and assistance in grant writing. For letters of support, please complete our LOS request form and allow at least 2 weeks form the time of your request.
Our facility is also dependent on grant support for long-term success and we appreciate your support in keeping the facility funded.
