The APL lab provides responsible services in the area of analytical characterization of proteins and peptides.

protein digestionProtein Digestion
Protein mapping and bottom-up proteomic experiments usually require digestion of proteins prior to mass spectrometric analysis.


sample plateMALDI-TOF MS Analysis of Proteins and Peptides
Protein/peptide sample is loaded on a stainless MALDI sample plate.


peptide analysisLC-MS Analysis of Peptides
A data dependant LC-MS experiment can produce up to 1,000 fragmentation spectra.


database outputProtein Sequence Database Search
Protein databases are constantly updated.



database outputValidation of MS/MS data
Probability that proteins are actually in a biological sample is calculated using statistical algorithms.
