The VIB Proteomics Core (PRC), located at the VIB-UGent Center for Medical Biotechnology in Ghent, Belgium, provides contemporary mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics services to academic and non-academic users.
The Proteomics Core started in 2005 as a spin-off service unit of the proteomics laboratory of Prof. Dr. Kris Gevaert. Today, it has evolved from a research-oriented facility to a service-oriented platform and has become a reference center for proteome research in Belgium and beyond.
Seven state-of-the-art orbitrap mass spectrometers coupled with nano-LC chromatography systems are available to perform LC-MS/MS analyses at the PRC. These instruments run 24/7 and can process several hundred samples/month. In addition, the PRC has a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer for targeted proteomics, as well as a MALDI-TOF MS/MS instrument.
To showcase the world-class scientific research of the VIB Proteomics Core Lab, you can discover their scientific papers in more detail.
