Proteomic Sample Drop Off Procedure


Effective June 10th, 2020


Samples that are stable at room temp (ex: gel bands) should be placed in the A916 (A-stem) Scaife Hall location by 11:00 am. For all other samples, please contact BioMS Center.


All samples dropped off by Thursdays at 11:00am will be analyzed and returned approximately a week later.


Please place your proteomic samples inside a plastic bag/envelope along with your submission form. A submission form must be placed in the bag or envelope. Samples must be clearly labeled and match what is on the submission form.


Label BioMS on the outside of the bag/envelope. Gel band samples should be stored in a microcentrifuge tube with 50ul of water. Place the bag/envelope inside the plastic container located in refrigerator marked GRC, in the Scaife hallway.


Directions to A916: Take the Scaife hall elevators to the 9th floor. Turn right off of elevators and go through the double doors into the A-stem.


From Presby: Take the Presby Main Elevators up to ninth floor. Go toward Scaife hall through 2 sets of double doors into the A-stem.
