NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Brain Research Centre in Vancouver, Canada, earlier this month opened a new proteomic core facility.
The 50,000-square-foot Peptide Proteomic Core Facility, which opened Sept. 1, offers custom peptide synthesis along with peptide array services.
The BRC is a partnership between Vancouver Coastal Health hospital and the faculty of medicine at the University of British Columbia. It will offer services to enable the use of proteomic platforms for those on its campus and outside, the center said in a statement.
The peptide array platforms include epitope mapping, peptide library screening, and peptide substitution screening assays. Equipment at the new center includes analytical HPLCs, mass spectrometers, and autospotters, the center said.
