Modern liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry technology provides a means to routinely perform non-targeted protein identification¹. BGI can help simplify the challenge of protein identification for your project.
We can identify proteins isolated in gel bands or spots. Our service includes destaining, in-gel digestion, nano-flow LC-MS/MS, and peptide spectral match data analysis.
- In-gel digestion
- LC-MS/MS ANALYSIS
- Data analysis
Our in-solution protein identification services can be used for applications such as monitoring recombinant protein expression and affinity purification systems.
