Can I send liquid samples instead of gel samples for protein identification?
No, we only accept gel samples at this time. Our nanobore LC columns are too easily clogged and some salts/buffers/detergents can cause chromatographic problems. Gels usually do a really good job of cleaning up the samples prior to LC/MS/MS analysis. Sample cannot have any particulates in them as they will clog our LC columns and you may be responsible for the cost of replacing the column.
