Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Services - The proteomics facility can provide access to advanced mass spectrometry and proteomics technologies enabling protein identification and quantitation
using LCMSMS Orbitrap mass spectrometry in conjuction with techniques such as SILAC, iTRAQ, heavy-dimethyl labelling and label-free quantitation approaches.
Please email CPF - Pathology. We're happy to be contacted for advice and can offer help on proteomic based experimental design, training, data interpretation and grant writing.
New research projects involving the generation of proteomics data must be discussed with the Facility Director prior to commencement of the project. Note this also applies to existing users of the facility starting new projects. New users of the facility are requested to read the New User FAQ first.
post the gel band/s in microcentrifuge tubes at room temperature for proteomic mass spectrometry analysis and a hardcopy of the Sample Submission form to:

We have a strong track record of working with biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. If you are a commercial organisation and are interested in the services or expertise of the Central Proteomics Facility,
we would encourage you to contact Dr Josef Walker of Oxford University Consulting to discuss how we may be able to help you.

Publication Acknowledgements and Co-authorship
It is a condition of service that the Central Proteomics Facility and its staff be acknowledged in publications.
Acknowldedgements are important to the continued funding and development of the facility.
Where the contribution is significant (for example contributed to experimental design, conducted data analysis or provided training) please include the team member(s) that aided the research as named author(s).
As a general rule, routine protein gel band identification with a Mascot database search, where you interpret the data, does not require co-authorship. More advanced
workflows, such as label-free quantitation (SINQ, MaxQuant, Progenesis LCMS), labelled quantitation (SILAC, iTRAQ/TMT, Dimethyl), post-translational modification
identification with site localization require co-authorship. Please contact facility staff for more information.
We would appreciate any reference that is published to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can maintain an up to date list of publications which CPF have contributed towards.
