McGill Multiplexing, Peptide, & SPR Facilities
The Duff Gatehouse Cores provide academic and industrial researchers with open access to leading-edge equipment, personalized research services, and training that are vital to understanding health, disease, and therapeutic design. Our multi-user facilities (www.mcgill.ca/sheldon) include:
Multiplexing (MSD): Superior to classical ELISA and Western blot assays, our new Mesoscale SI2400 system (www.mesoscale.com) simplifies the quantification of multiple targets (e.g. up to 10 cytokines or biomarkers in a single 96-well assay), thereby saving you time, money, and precious sample volume.
Peptide Synthesis: Specializing in difficult syntheses, top purity, and timely turnaround, our Peptide Facility generates high-quality biological mimetics for detailed structure-function studies (e.g. NMR, SPR, Multiplexing, etc.).
Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR): Superior to classical ELISA, RIA, and fluorescence spectroscopy, our Biacore systems (www.biacore.com) are advancing the generation of label-free, real-time kinetic (SPR) and discovery-based proteomic (SPR-MS) studies.
One-on-one Consultations: How can the technologies noted above enhance your research program? Contact us to discuss a proposed project (www.mcgill.ca/sheldon/contact).
“How to” Workshops: MSD and SPR user symposia overview the value-added benefits of these technologies and highlight active facility projects.
“Luv Your Pipettes” Clinics: On-site servicing and calibrations by Mandel Scientific provide 1-year, worry-free protection and precision for your pipettes (all makes and models, plus exchange program).
