Proteomics and Protein Mass Spectrometry

Comprehensive proteomics analysis

To better understand the functions of individual proteins and their place in complex biological systems, it is necessary to measure changes in protein abundance relative to those of the system. As a result, modern proteomics has shifted from its initial qualitative outlook and currently encompasses a continuum of qualitative and quantitative technologies and approaches.

To make sense of the growing complexities of both qualitative and quantitative analysis, the field of proteomics demands state-of-the-art sample preparation techniques, analytical technologies, and software solutions. Our proven scientific network, publications, and pioneering solutions, which are driven by Thermo Scientific high-resolution accurate-mass (HRAM) Orbitrap mass spectrometers, enable broader and deeper analysis into the proteome than ever before. Our industry-leading breadth in liquid chromatographic separations, combined with the technical depth of our mass spectrometry (MS) systems and consumables, together produce novel, stringent, and reproducible results for high-impact discoveries.
