Sample Preparation

We handle a diverse range of biological, archaeological and forensic samples (human, animal, microbe, plant, tissue, biofluids, cell cultures) for protein preparation using:


  • Dounce and disperse homogenisation
  • Sonication
  • Cryo-pulverisation


  • Chaotropic agents  and detergents (e.g. 2D and 3D cell cultures)
  • Concentrating (e.g. secretomes)
  • Desalting (e.g. urine)
  • Depletion of abundant protein (e.g. plasma)


  • Proteases e.g. trypsin digestion

We are happy to discuss bespoke strategies for your specific sample preparation
