Quantitative Analyses, Targeted (Proteomics)

*Stable Isotope Labeled Peptides are provided at third party vendor cost. Methods are developed and performed on nanoAcquity UPLC and TQ-S triple quadrupole mass spectrometer unless otherwise stated. The shortest method possible is used for quantification of the number of analytes requested, using retention-time scheduled MRM technology. Typically, at least two peptides per protein and three transitions per peptide are used for MRM quantitative assays.
