NEW CORE: The Thermo Fisher Scientific Center for Multiplexed Proteomics at Harvard Medical School
The new Thermo Fisher Scientific Center at Harvard Medical School offers proteome-wide protein expression profiling. The Center uses recently-introduced high resolution mass spectrometers (Orbitrap Fusion Tribrid) and isobaric tandem mass tags (TMT) to quantify protein expression from cells or tissues. Currently the tandem mass tag technology allows for the analysis of 6-10 samples within a single experiment. For example, protein expression in a cancer cell line can be profiled after nine drug treatments and compared to an untreated sample across >6,000 proteins. The services are provided to the HMS community as well as external users.
Please visit the website at http://tcmp.hms.harvard.edu for more information and details on submitting samples.
NEW CORE: The Longwood Medical Area CyTOF Core Facility is open for use.
The Longwood Medial Area (LMA) CyTOF Core Facility uses innovative technology available to the Harvard Medical School Community that integrates Mass Spectrometry with Flow Cytometry.
The heart of the facility is a CyTOF®2 Mass Cytometer (pictured above) that is capable of analyzing, at the single cell level, up to 40 markers simultaneously with minimal signal overlap. The facility has both a dedicated operator and a data analyst who assist investigators as they design assays, process samples, and analyze the high dimensional data produced by the CyTOF.
NEW CORE: Visit ICCB to use the IVIS (In-Vivo Imaging System) Lumina II mouse imager.
The HMS Mouse Imaging Core provides access for researchers to in-vivo mouse imaging for endpoint and longitudinal studies using either luminescent or fluorescent reporters in an Animal Biosafety Level 2 environment. Staff from the ICCB-Longwood Screening Facility oversee the IVIS (In-Vivo Imaging System) Lumina II mouse imager and its use, while the IVIS room is operated and maintained by the HCCM (Harvard Center for Comparative Medicine). Staff members provide access and training for the imager and data analysis computers, while the HCCM oversees all room and animal operations including facility access, safety training and orientation, animal transfers and husbandry, and protocol approval.
