The Laboratory of Proteomics at National Institute of Health Dr Ricardo Jorge in Lisbon has long experience in proteomics field, namely, experimental design in biomarker discovery, protein sample preparation from cells/tissues for proteomic study, proteome analysis by 2DE/2DIGE, 2D maps analysis by dedicated software, protein identification by mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOFTOF) and protein-protein interactions, pathways and network analysis by bioinformatics tools.
The laboratory is open for collaborations. Please contact us, we will be happy to provide proteomic answers to your biological questions.
  Mass Spectrometry Laboratory

The laboratory performs development and validation of analytical methods as well as routine analysis for a broad range of chemical compounds, from small organic and organometalic compounds to peptides, oligosaccharides, nucleotides and proteins.

The Aveiro Mass Spectrometry Center is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with the most modern instrumentation in mass spectrometry. 
The mass spectrometry center is equipped with a Applied Biosystems 4800 Proteomics Analyzer (TOF/TOF) mass spectrometer, a Thermo LXQ mass spectrometer with electrospray and nanoelectrospray sources, a Micromass QTOF 2 with electrospray, nanoelectrospray and APCI sources, a Dionex 3000 Ultimate nano LC and a Waters 2690 HPLC. The HPLC systems can be integrated with either the QTOF 2, the LXQ or a LC Packings Probot auto sampler. The Probot can spot the eluent directly onto a MALDI target plate, for MALDI MS/MS analysis. This center is also equipped with general laboratory equipment like 2D gel electrophoresis systems, refrigerated centrifuges, refrigerators, speedvac, etc. A Micromass Quattro triple quadrupole, and a Thermo GC-MS are also available in the Department of Chemistry.

The Proteomics Unit from the Institute of Molecular Pathology and Immunology of the University of Porto (IPATIMUP) provides investigators access to the analysis of protein samples from solutions, bands or protein spots from electrophoresis gels.

The mass spectrometer equipment (4800 Plus MALDI TOF/TOF Analyzer, AB SCIEX) is optimized for the following proteomic studies:

1. Mass Analysis of Intact Proteins, Peptides and Metabolites by mass spectrometry.

2. Protein identification by Peptide Mass Fingerprint - PMF (MALDI-TOF).

3. Protein identification by PMF following peptide sequencing/fragmentation (MALDI-TOF/TOF, PMF+MS/MS).

4. Protein Post-translational characterization.

5. Microorganism characterization.
