The Australian Proteome Analysis Facility

The Australian Proteome Analysis Facility (APAF) is Australia ‘s premier high-throughput protein discovery facility. As well as being the birthplace of proteomics, APAF provides world-class proteomic research services on a cost-recovery basis; works with the best Australian and international industrial partners on new products; trains our next generation of protein discovery scientists; and facilitates the development and evaluation of new technologies.

APAF offers technologies that span the broad spectrum of proteomic techniques necessary to run successful bio-discovery programs. Its infrastructure covers mass spectrometry, high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC), protein sequencing, amino acid analysis, protein separation, proteomic quantitation, membrane proteomics and biomarker discovery.

Services include:

  • iTRAQ and SILAC quantitative mass spectrometry
  • Selected reaction monitoring for targeted quantitative proteomics
  • Glycan and glycoprotein analysis
  • Biomarker Discovery
  • High-throughput bead-based ELISA assays
  • Classical protein chemistry techniques (AAA, Edman)
  • High abundance protein removal
  • Proteogenomics
  • Proteome Bioinformatics
