What we do

Protein purification / Fractionation

We are specialists in preparing your samples for analysis, using various techniques.
Contact us for more information and prices.

Quantification by mass spectrometry (MRM)

We use the latest generation of LCMS for protein quantification : Hepcidin, Orexin and ApoE phenotyping (contact us for other analytes)
Starting from 10 Euros per run.

Identification by High Resolution Mass Spectrometry(HRMS)

We offer identification and characterization of major proteins in a complex sample.
160 Euros per LC-MS/MS run (lasting 1 hour).

Single or multiple immunoassays

We always use the latest technologies (SIMOA, MSD) to perform highly sensitive assays.

About us

Founded in 2008, the Clinical Proteomics Platform aims to provide medical, biological and technical services to academic and industrial teams.

Our laboratory hosts various analysis techniques, allowing us to treat a high volume of samples. High quality pre-analytical and preparation steps are essential for proper analysis, we value these steps and are specialists in sample pre-fractionation.

The platform plays a major role in clinical research at the University Hospital of Montpellier, ranked 7th in the national SIGAPS ranking (number of publications) and in the top 6 French university hospitals in research.

The MRM method (Multiple Reaction Monitoring) is a mass spectrometry technique that is widespread in the clinical field to perform targeted quantification of several analytes of interest and several small molecules.

The development of MRM methods can be done on different types of matrices from biological fluids (whole blood, urine) to cell cultures

The technique of high resolution mass spectrometry allows the identification and characterisation of a large number of proteins in complex mixtures.

The new Impact II ™ is the latest innovation of Bruker Daltonics mass spectrometry products. This is part of the "Ultra-high-resolution Qq-Time-Of-Flight” technique which can reach a resolution of >50,000 (FSR). This brings new perspectives to the large-scaled identification of proteins in complex biological samples, thanks to the high level of analytical performance offered by Impact II ™.
