Sample Submission

For most sample submissions it is beneficial to discuss the experiment, goals and expectations and we therefor encourage users to arrange, ahead of time, an appointment.  For peptide synthesis we suggest to fill out our Custom Peptide and Peptide Library Submission Form.

For a user opting to ship/mail samples, please use our mailing address and share tracking number if available.

All samples are logged and labelled with a tracking number which typically begins with P (for peptides) or MS (for mass spec experiments) followed by a number where the two first digits indicate the Fiscal Year. Internal users can track the progress/status for submitted requests here. When contacting the PRC re. past analyses, please  refer to the P or MS number.

All samples received at the PRC will be labelled with a unique number.







For external users we create an account and will need name, email and phone numbers of user, PI and administrator as well as your lab address. We will generate a cost estimate after discussing your project and the estimate should be used to generate a Purchase Order (PO). We can not accept checks or credit cards.

Currently (December 1, 2019), the median turn-around time for mass spec based analysis is 8 days with an average of 2 weeks but processing time is project dependent. Turn-around time for peptide synthesis requests is 4-5 weeks.
