The Mass Spectrometry-Proteomics Core Laboratory (MS-PCL) of Baylor College of Medicine provides services for high sensitivity high throughput triple Time-of-Flight mass spectrometer and full-fledged proteomics technologies for discovery and validation of biomarkers of various diseases. The services include (i) rapid mass determination of proteins and peptides, (ii) identification of proteins/peptides in complex biological samples, (iii) subproteome isolation and characterization, and (iv) detailed analysis of post-translational modification of proteins/peptides. The MS-PCL is also planning to meet the Good Laboratory Practice.
