The Proteins and Proteomics Centre (PPC) is a multi-user facility located in Block S2-Level 2 focused on advanced research in proteins with an emphasis on mass spectrometry. Areas of expertise include biomarker discovery, proteomics, quantitative proteomics, structural mass spectrometry (Amide Hydrogen/Deuterium Exchange MS and Ion Mobility MS). PPC works closely with academic and industrial partners in biomedical research.


Our Mission

Our goal is to provide state-of-the-art  mass spectrometry services and expertise while expanding MS applications across the Life Sciences spanning biology, chemistry and pharmacy. We aim to build on our status as a Waters World Centre of Innovation in HDXMS to other protein MS areas through partnerships with individual researchers and industrial collaborations.

Our facility has four mass spectrometers -

LCMS-TripleTOF® 5600 System (ABSciex), MALDI MS - 4800 MALDI TOF/TOF™ Analyzer (ABSciex), Synapt G1 High Definition Mass Spectrometer ( HDMS, Waters), Synapt G2Si High Definition Mass Spectrometer (HDMS, Waters)

Some of the equipment at PPC is available for the use for researchers only. These include various HPLC systems, Freeze-dryer and and spectrometers. For these, please bring along with you all necessary consumable items. Examples of items that you will bring with you are: solvents, LC columns, sample filters, and syringes for HPLC analysis. Items such as pipettes, pipette tips, test tubes for fraction collectors, plastic falcon tubes, and gloves are examples of disposable lab-wares that you should also bring with you. Some specialized items such as freeze-drying flasks are available for loan in limited numbers.
