Services and Costs

Services and Costs

We offer a unique service with different assay length and applications. Our uniqueness stems from the fact that we are simply the only ones offering these services in Egypt. Costs include reagents, sample processing, manpower, instrument usage, data analysis and reporting.


General workflow

We work professionally according to world standards to ensure accurate, sensitive results. For all samples we perform an efficient protein extraction using varieties of extraction buffers, quantification of proteins and appropriate protein reduction and alkylation prior to trypsinization. All samples are subjected to C18 desalting step to make sure purified peptides are going to our clean TripleTOF 5600+.


Data analysis

  • Data is searched by up to two tandem mass spectrometry protein identification algorithms, including X!Tandem, OMSSA, comet, tide, andromeda.
  • Label free quantification based on spectral abundance “NSAF or emPAI” or area under the curve “AUC” is provided free of charge
  • Samples or groups of samples are compared, generating fold-change values for every measured protein.

Confidentiality

All identifying information about the samples' participants will be confidential and masked for subsequent usage. Confidentiality will be maintained including any limitations. The sample provider will be informed and acknowledged in any documents provided from these samples.



Right to Refuse

The samples provider may refuse to allow samples to be kept or put restrictions on those samples with no loss of benefits.


Declaration of uncertainty

Dear Customer,

Although the Proteomics and metabolomics unit takes all precautions to produce an internationally standardized results and associated reports, in some cases, and due to the nature of the samples, we cannot guarantee the reproducibility and outcome of the results.

This is simply due to the nature of the sample rather than any artifacts due to sample processing, mass spectrometric optimization.

You are signing on this document to be noticed that our unit won’t bear responsibility of failure of analysis due to the nature of samples.

Associated prove of optimized procedures is provided within this analysis will be delivered to you in case of analysis failure. In such case, please note that CCHE 57357 will not bear responsibility of reanalyzing the sample again and the unit have the right to reject further analysis of such sample(s) to keep our mass spectrometry clean and optimized.
