2-D Electrophoreses Cell (Protean/IEF Cell)

BIO-RAD Laboratories Inc.

2-D electrophoresis is a form of gel electrophoresis commonly used to analyze proteins. Mixtures of proteins are separated by two properties, IEF and molecular weight, in two dimensions on 2D gels. Each spot on gel usually represents a single pure protein.

MALDI TOF/TOF Analyzer

Applied Biosystems

Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) is a soft ionization technique used in mass spectrometer allowing the analysis of biomolecules which tend to be fragile and fragment when ionized by more conventional ionization methods. The ionization is triggered by a laser. A matrix is used to protect the biomolecule from being destroyed by direct beam and to facilitate vaporization and ionization. The mass spectrum of the biomolecule is then generated and compared with corresponding database for the molecular identification.

EXQuest Spot Cutter

BIO-RAD Laboratories Inc.

This is a software driven instrument that helps you to identify and excise protein spots from the gel. The protein spot can be analyzed by MALDI system for the proper identification of the protein.
