The Proteomics Center has a number of instruments for mass spectrometry and protein separation.
The Proteomics Center (PC) provides advanced technologies in protein separation and mass spectrometry identification for researchers at the University of Missouri.
The Center accepts any non-hazardous, non-pathogenic, and non-radioactive samples for analyses. These samples can be whole organism (cell pellets, seedlings, etc.), tissue (biopsies, roots, leaves, etc.), or purified protein (cell lysate, precipitated protein, IPs, gel bands/spots).
The MU Proteomics Center is named for Charles W. Gehrke, emeritus professor of Biochemistry, University of Missouri-Columbia. Dr. Gerhke joined MU in 1949 and progressed to the rank of full professor. His interest in analytical chemistry and mass spectrometry was one of the factors in naming the Center for Dr. Gehrke; benefactors are Lowell and Marian Miller.
