New Orbitrap Fusion Lumos Tribrid Mass Spectrometer installed at CEITEC
New Orbitrap Fusion Lumos Tribrid Mass Spectrometer (Thermo Scientific) has been installed at the Proteomics Core Facility, CEITEC MU. The new instrument equipped by three mass analyzers (a quadrupole, linear ion trap, an Orbitrap) and four fragmentation techniques (CID, HCD, ETD, EThcD) significantly improves our capabilities and flexibility in data dependent and data independent acquisition modes.
New technologies (such as Advanced Peak Determination or Synchronous Precursor Selection) bring large increase of the number of peptides and proteins identified and improve accuracy in quantitative studies using isobaric mass tags (TMT).
The purchase of the instrument was financed from the European Regional Development Fund-Project „CIISB4HEALTH“ (No. CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/16_013/0001776).
What to do when your grant is rejected
Losing out on a grant hurts, but don’t lose heart — average success rates are around 20% among large funders, so grant rejection is common. Discover how to bounce back, find alternative funding and boost your chances of success next time.
Revolutionary cryo-EM is taking over structural biology
The number of protein structures being determined by cryo-electron microscopy is growing at an explosive rate. A report published by Nature on February 10, 2020 says that a revolutionary technique for determining the 3D shape of biomacromolecules is booming. Last week, a database that collects protein and other molecular structures determined by cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, acquired its 10,000th entry.
