Tissue Imaging, Metabolomics and Proteomics Laboratory (TIMPL)
WSU’s Tissue Imaging, Metabolomics and Proteomics Laboratory (TIMPL)
We are a metabolomics- and proteomics-based facility that applies mass spectrometry-based technologies to significant biological problems.
TIMPL is a University service center that analyzes samples from a wide range of projects from across the different WSU campuses and from non-WSU clients in the region and across the nation.
In TIMPL, we focus on the development, advancement, and application of leading-edge instrumentation techniques for the large-scale profiling and identification of the functional products of gene expression, namely proteins and metabolites.
Our metabolomic services include both targeted and non-targeted analysis of a wide range of small molecules in biological systems, using a variety of MS-based techniques. Relative and absolute quantification of compounds is routinely carried out on a wide range of molecules.
Our proteomic services include protein identification and protein quantification from a wide variety of sample types from simple to complex mixtures, as well as identification of post-translational modifications of proteins.
Our Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MSI) capabilities include metabolites (including lipids) and proteins within biological tissues.
