Proteomics core facility
The Proteomics Core Facility (PCF) of University of Tartu (UT) is a mass spectrometry (MS) based proteomics competence center. The goal of MS proteomics is to characterize both qualitatively and quantitatively the peptide/protein composition of cells, tissues, bodily fluids and biologics (e.g. therapeutic antibodies).
The facility is maintained on the basis of service analyses and concentrates the necessary instrumentation and qualified personnel for maintaining the apparatus. We offer our services to research groups within UT and for other scientific institutions (universities, national laboratories and others), also, for the biotechnology industry.
In addition to service analyses, UT PCF continually participates in scientific research and collaboration. The research of our scientists has been published in a number of different publications. From 2019 UT PCF also participates in the pan-EU infrastructure project EPIC-XS which unifies leading proteomics groups over EU to provide access and advance proteomics technologies.
Before submitting samples please contact the facility manager (e-mail:sergo.kasvandik [ät] ut.ee; telephone: +372 737 4865) to discuss the details of your experimental design, so that the analysis can be optimally tailored to your needs. The prices for different services can be found here. For sample transport to PCF, please read the relevant instructions and requirements and send an electronic sample submission form when you have sent your samples.
