Effective March 19, 2020

In order to comply with the best practices guidelines recently issued by the University, The Proteomics and Small Molecule Mass Spectrometry Shared Resource (SR) will be instituting the following approach:

  1. Effective March 19th - We will be conducting a 1-week hold on any new samples that will be analyzed by the SR in order to ensure we complete the current samples in the queue such that if needed we can shut down easily without sacrificing samples.  After this 1-week hold we will be assessing projects on a case by case basis.
  2. Any new projects that need to be conducted in the next 3-4 weeks must be submitted to the Assistant Director, Danie Schlatzer.  The request needs to include an explanation of the critical nature of the experiment and the specific time commitment needed by Core staff.  The request will then be submitted to the SR Director, Mark Chance. Any scheduling of new projects will be determined and communicated by Danie Schlatzer.

The Assistant Core Director and Lab Manager are available by email (dms73@case.edu, kcl4@case.edu) to answer questions.



The overall goal of the Proteomics Shared Resource (SR) is to make advanced mass spectrometry instruments, expertise, and methods for proteome analysis available to all investigators.

Services include the following:

  • Protein Identification
  • Characterization of post-translational modifications
  • Quantitation of protein expression
    • Quantitative Top-Down Proteomics using 2-D gels
    • Quantitative Bottom-Up Proteomics using LC-MS
    • Experimental Design for Quantitative Proteomics
    • Data analysis
  • Bioinformatics analysis
  • Training
  • Independent use
  • Interactome analysis
  • Structural analysis (protein footprinting)
