ETC Webinar Series: Reverse Phase Protein Array (RPPA) Applications: Molecular Profiling and Predicting Response to Targeted Therapies

March 20, 2024: RPPA is a high-throughput protein array technology that simultaneously measures hundreds or thousands of samples on glass slides with high precision and reliability, using specific antibodies. RPPA and mass spectrometry-based protein profiling are complementary technologies for protein profiling. In this webinar, panelists discuss RPPA's high-throughput capabilities and laser-captured microdissection technology. They also cover how these technologies precisely measure protein expression, modifications, and phosphorylation in tumor cells.

ETC Webinar Series: Past,Actual & Future Directions of Trapped Ion Mobility Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry

February 21, 2024 - Trapped ion mobility spectrometry (TIMS) is a powerful analytical technique that separates and characterizes gas-phase ions based on their mobility in a buffer gas. TIMS has been widely applied in various fields, such as proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, and pharmaceutical research. It offers sensitivity, speed, and resolution for complex and challenging samples.

In the webinar, you will also learn about the different data-independent acquisition (DIA) mass spectrometry methods currently used in proteomics and how new approaches benefit from the additional ion mobility dimension and new acquisition modes.

ETC Webinar Series:
Why Size Matters - Revolutionizing Protein and Peptide Detection with Ion Mobility

January 24, 2024. Protein identification is of fundamental importance in many areas of proteomics. Its applications include determining the presence or absence of an expected protein in a sample of interest, identifying an unknown protein present in a biological sample, and identifying a protein responsible for biochemical activity in an isolated protein fraction. In some cases, mass spectrometry or affinity-based methods may be suitable options, but these methods can face substantial challenges. Scientists need the ability to identify and measure peptide modifications, structures, and impurities more definitively and faster. Driven by structures for lossless ion manipulation (SLIM) technology, the MOBIE® instrument’s high-resolution ion mobility mass spectrometry platform separates and identifies the most challenging molecules with unprecedented resolution without compromising speed. By combining the MOBIE® platform’s high-resolution ion mobility mass spectrometry (HRIM-MS) data with liquid chromatography, more accurate separation and identification of impurities and posttranslational modifications (PTMs) can be achieved, reducing run times and costs.
