Everyone must use it to submit and retrieve MS sample analyses.
Ask your PI or administrative assistant for username and
Default username: Your PI's last name.
It is important to log in for the correct lab, as this lab will be charged for the analysis.
Contact us at 858-784-9415 or email masspec.scripps.edu
On the last page of the "Request & Analysis Form" (after we get all
information about your sample) we will provide you a unique sample ID.
You have to write this 8 digit sample ID legibly on the sample vial, otherwise we will not be able to process the sample.
Personal sample IDs are no longer supported. Visit the "How To" Page
It depends on the method you have chosen.
More information on the mass spectrometry homepage .
Bring your sample to SR15 in the Stein Research building.
At the door is a box for each instrument. E.g., if you submit an exact mass sample to MALDI-TOF, put your sample vial in the 'MALDI-TOF' box.
If you are mailing your samples please send to:
Address for sample submission:
The Scripps Research Institute
Center for Metabolomics and Mass Spectrometry
Mail Code: SR-15
3215 Merryfield Row
San Diego, CA 92121
Typical turn around times are 24 hours for low resolution (unit mass on ESI, MALDI-TOF and GC/MS) and 1-3 days for high resolution.
You will be informed by email, when your sample is done.
In addition to that, you can check at any time in the sample-logfile about the status of your sample. The 'loginfo'-column will tell you if we are trying a different approach - this might take a little longer.As soon as the sample is finished, you will see the link to your analysis in the 'URL'-column.
You need to have the Acrobat Reader from Adobe installed on your system. Acrobat Reader is freeware, available for PC, Mac, Linux and many more platforms.
Usually it is enough to click on the link in the sample logfile. If this does not work, save the file to your harddrive and open it with Acrobat Reader.
PC: Right click the link and choose: Save Link as... (Netscape) or Save Target as...(Internet Explorer) to save the file to your hard drive.
Mac: Ctrl-click the link and choose: Save Link as... to save the file to your hard drive.
If this does not work, or if you are using different browsers or platforms, check the browsers help files.
We have to figure out how many data files we accumulate. It is planned that you can directly access your data for at least a month; the data will be backed up and stored for at least another three months.
You may access your data by logging into http://bigdaddy.scripps.edu and following the Sample tracking and finished samples link under the desired MS Routine Service or MS Proteomics pages.
