Sample Submission

Before you bring your sample to our facility, please complete the Sample Submission using the Initiate Request button through our iLabs website.

For new clients or new projects, it is always best to discuss your project goals with us before preparing your samples.  These consultations provide an opportunity to gauge the difficulty of the analysis, eliminate any confusion about sample preparation and, most importantly, increase the chances for successful analysis.

When submitting samples please provide the following:

1) Samples labeled clearly with date of submission and your name

2) An annotated gel image of samples or similar samples (annotated electronic version should be up-loaded). This tells us a lot about the samples, but primarily helps us gauge the complexity and amount of protein to determine the appropriate LC gradient and amount to load onto our nano-columns

3) If submitting gel bands or spots, please cut them out of your gel (see samples from gel bands or spots)   

4) If submitting proteins in solution or dried, please list the concentrations of all reagents in the buffer
