The Centre for Proteomics is the UAntwerpen core facility for proteomics and mass spectrometry that houses mass spectrometry equipment from both UAntwerp and VITO. With joined forces, UAntwerp and VITO would like to make this infrastructure and expertise available to both internal and external research partners in academia, but also in industry.
The Centre for Proteomics focuses on the multidisciplinary field of proteomics and consists of a consortium of research units with complementary expertise. The facility has an extensive set of state of the art instruments for liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry.
The services available range from structure elucidation (including PTMs) to quantitative proteomics (label-based or label free), from small molecules to larger polymers and proteins, and from simple to complex samples.
