Structural Mass Spectrometry CF at BIOCEV acquired a new MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer
The structural mass spectrometry core facility at BIOCEV has expanded its equipment offer (and associated services) with several items.
The core facility now provides access to a new MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer, an Autoflex Speed device from Bruker Corporation. This instrument is suited mostly for the routine detection of peptides and intact proteins. The availability of this new device increases the throughput of analyzed samples, which was previously limited by the lengthy reservation times for accessing the 15T SolariX FT-ICR instrument.
Further, the new excimer laser for fast photo oxidative labeling of proteins will be used for monitoring of fast structural changes of proteins or protein-protein and protein-DNA complexes. A new UHLPC system will be installed in few days to increase the performance of analytes separation. The acquisition of new components was financed from European Regional Development Fund-Project „CIISB4HEALTH“ (No. CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/16_013/0001776).
PSB SYMPOSIUM "MACROMOLECULES IN ACTION"
The aim of this meeting is to illustrate how the big biological questions are resolved by combining key methods in structural biology (eg X-ray and neutron crystallography, cryo-EM, NMR and small angle scattering - SAXS and SANS)
Instruct-ERIC Joint Research Awards: Call for proposals
Instruct is inviting applications for funding for joint research that develops new, or improves existing access services delivered by Instruct to the user community. The aim is to develop and progress technologies to a stage where they can be made available through the Instruct access programme.
Ten Million Euro for Access to European Proteomics Facilities
The European Union has awarded 10 million euro to a consortium of eighteen European research groups in the field of mass spectrometry-based proteomics research throughout Europe.
Instruct Training program
We are pleased to announce that the Call for proposals for Instruct Centre Training Courses (to be held in 2019) is now open.
