Return to All Courses

This course has already concluded

TARGET AUDIENCE: Any scientist (undergraduate or graduate student, research technician, research scientist, or faculty) in the biological sciences who has a need to determine molecular weight or identify compounds in either a research or QA/QC environment. Previous knowledge or hands-on experience with MALDI is not required, but it is desirable.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This introductory MALDI short course will expose class participants to MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry and its applications. The course will cover the fundamentals of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, discuss basics of proteomics by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, and have hands-on instrument demonstrations. The presentations will encompass fundamentals of the technique and proteomics. Each participant will receive a binder containing slide printouts and experiment work sheets. A Bench-top MALDI instrument will be made available, used for applications demonstrations in addition to participants hands-on acquisition. This course will contribute to a solid foundation in MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry and useful hands-on experience using a MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer.
