The Thermo Scientific Pierce Standards are designed for a variety of applications, including sensitivity assessment, determination of digestion efficiency, chromatography assessment and/or as controls for sample analysis. Standards range from single component formulations to complex human-based digests. Each standard is provided with a Certificate of Analysis.

  • More choices—different standards to meet a variety of applications/needs
  • Stable—store for more than one year at the recommended temperature
  • Validated—all standards manufactured in an ISO 9001 facility measured and fully tested using Thermo Scientific Mass Spectrometers

TMT11plex Yeast Digest Standard

The TMT11plex Yeast Digest Standard can be used to assess instrument readiness and protein quantification accuracy. The TMT11plex Yeast Digest Standard was used to assess MS instrument readiness on the precision of quantification of a housekeeping protein, ENO2. Protein abundance was scaled to the parental lines in Proteome Discover 2.2 software, with expected ratios of 1:1. A total of 500 ng of the Pierce TMT11plex Yeast Digest Standard was measured using a 50 min gradient on an UltiMate 3000 RSLCnano system with a synchronous precursor selection (SPS)-MS3 (SPS-MS3) method of the Orbitrap Fusion Lumos Tribrid Mass Spectrometer.
