Mass Spectrometer, ThermoFinnigan LTQ

Located at the William R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, the ThermoFinnigan LTQ mass spectrometer is used to identify peptides from living organisms such as human plasma, bacteria, and plants. Coupled with peptide identifications from FTICR mass spectrometers, the instrument becomes part of a two-step process used at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for verifying the existence and abundance of proteins. With important peptide biomarkers identified, directed research can further be done to better disease detection, energy production, vaccine development, and bioremediation.
