TOF-TOF Example

Spots can be excised from fluorescently stained gels using a KBiosystems KCore. The resulting spots are digested robotically with trypsin using a Genomic Solutions ProGest. The digests are cleaned by Ziptip using a Packard Multiprobe IIEX. Peptides and the matrix are spotted automatically to 4700 target plates using the Applied Biosystems Symbiot XVI. A schematic depiction of this process provides a complete overview of this method.
