Overview of Services


Proteomics and Metabolomics Core Facility (PROMEC) offers service to support your research needs for proteomics and metabolomics. We kan provide a wide range of services, from protein and peptide separation, (1D/2D)-PAGE, 1D/2D-western, capillary western analysis and offgel isoelectric focusing, to mass-spectrometry-based protein identification, de-novo sequencing and analysis of post translational modifications. In the initial phase access to LC-MS instrumentation for metabolite analysis will be offered to trained users, aiming to gradually increase our capacity to offer such analyses as a service.

This core facility belongs to Department of Cancer Research and Molecular Medicine at Faculty of Medicine. PROMEC started as a node of the Norwegian Proteomics consortium NorProteomics, with the responsibility of doing proteomics analysis at NTNU/HMN and for others in the area of Mid-Norway. Our goal has been and will be to provide modern proteomics technology to Norwegian scientists with the best possible services and lowest cost.


We provide access to:

  • ABSciex 5000 triple-quadrupole in-line Schimazdu HPLC
  • ABSciex 5500 triple-quadrupole in-line Schimazdu HPLC
  • Thermo Orbitrap Elite in-line Thermo EASY nLC 1000 UPLC
  • Thermo Q Exactive in-line Thermo EASY nLC 1000 UPLC
  • 2D-PAGE (IGPhor, Ettan)
  • OffGel Fractionator
  • SIMON Gel free western
  • Ettan Spotpicker
  • Typhoon Trio Laser scanner (f. eks til DIGE-analyser etter Cy 2/3/5-labelling)


I addition we have access to other equipment in the closest lab for complementary protein analysis;laser-confocal microscopy, X-ray diffractometer (Oxford), chromatography equipment for protein separation (Akta FPLC, Akta Explorer), Western gel documentation (Kodak, Licor), beta-scintillation counter, centrifuges etc.
