The protein, proteomic, and metabolomics facility offers many services geared toward protein analysis, proteomics, and metabolomics. These range from sample preparation, protein purification, protein characterization and quantification, to proteomics and metabolomics analysis using high resolution mass spectrometry.

The modular analysis plan is a way for researchers to select a customized workflow. Through this, clients can mix and match complementary services they wish to avail from the facility to suit their research needs.

Modular Analysis Plans (MAPs) may be created by following this link: https://pgc.up.edu.ph/modular-analysis-plan

The service workflow depends whether the client would like to use the equipment, or to avail sample or data analysis services.

To use the equipment for short term clients or long term*/collaboration:

  1. Define the analysis workflow.
  2. Confirm sample quality (QC approval)
  3. Email PPMF to request a service schedule.
  4. Schedule a meeting or consultation with PPMF staff
  5. Submit client information sheet and client conforme 
  6. Provide initial payment
  7. Perform experiments
  8. Receive Service Report and Billing Statement.
  9. Pay remaining balance
  10. Receive results from the PPMF
  11. Acknowledge receipt of the released data and report

*Long term clients are those who intend to avail the services of the PPMF in the form of a collaborative project.

To avail sample or data analysis services:

  1. Define the analysis workflow
  2. Confirm sample quality (QC approval)
  3. Email PPMF to schedule a meeting or consultation with the staff
  4. Submit client information sheet and client conforme
  5. Provide initial payment
  6. Send samples for analysis
  7. Receive Service Report and Billing Statement
  8. Pay remaining balance
  9. Receive results from the PPMF

A general marker is if it shows a clear band in a PAGE gel. Alternatively, you may check your protein concentration prior to submission, and consult with the PPMF if this is sufficient for the requested analysis. Some of our procedures require a minimum concentration in order for the service to proceed.  For your convenience, the PPMF also offers protein quantification services that you may avail.

Samples should be sent to the following address:

Protein, Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility,  Philippine Genome Center Building A. Ma. Regidor St., University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City 1101 Philippines

We suggest that these be sent through official courier services, and stored accordingly (i.e. with dry ice or ice packs if needed) to prevent sample degradation during transport. Depending on the sample, we may need to perform quality control steps, such as PAGE or quantification, to determine its suitability for analysis.  An itemized list of the services conducted for the sample will be provided in the billing statement.

The PPMF will receive samples from Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 12:00 nn, and 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm.

We offer consultation services here in the PPMF so that we can provide the best services available.  We invite you to check our website at https://pgc.up.edu.ph/services/ for more details. You may also email us at [email protected] to talk more about our services.

You can request a quotation from us so you can get a budgetary estimate for the service. If you decide to avail our services, we will draft a contract and discuss the terms of the services you have chosen.

Most of our procedures rely on the concentration and the purity of the protein. We suggest checking the quality of your protein through your own means or through other services offered by the PPMF prior to sample analysis.  For recombinant protein samples, we strongly suggest the submission of freshly expressed or purified proteins and/or prepared extracts for better results. The ideal time for the best sample quality is within 2 weeks after expression and/or extraction. 

Prior to the conduct of analysis experiments, the quality of the test samples will be determined to check their suitability.  We will discuss the results of these QC tests with you to help determine the appropriate steps to take before analysis proceeds.

The facility is open Mondays to Fridays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm except during public holidays.   Some experiments may be scheduled to run during the weekends depending on the availability of the equipment.

You may inquire about the status of your sample and/or progress of the service/s through email. An estimated timeline of the analysis will also be provided during the consultation meeting.

The cost of service will depend on the service/s you would like to acquire. For a quote, please complete a client information sheet or a quote request form.
