Project Description

This proposal is for two complementary instruments: (1) an Orbitrap ELITE mass spectrometer, not currently
available in Australia, that is capable of delivering top down protein analysis with the additional benefits of
super high resolution and ETD fragmentation. (2) a BioRad Proteon XPR36 which will have bidirectional
complementarity with the Orbitrap ELITE. Both instruments will reside in core facilities that provide open
access to the research community for the characterisation of proteins and and small molecules. It will
enhance projects as diverse as new molecules for solar cells and video displays, gas phase peptide
chemistry, toxin research, antibody production, and plant biology.
