The University awarded a contract for orbitrap mass spectrometer.
Proteomics research relies on highly accurate and precise mass spectra acquired from a mixture of hundreds of thousands of peptides. Orbitrap technology provides both high accuracy and high precision at a compact size and an affordable price. Within all of the 5,758 data deposited in PRIDE, one of the largest data repositories for proteomics research, more than 90% of the data were acquired by orbitrap mass spectrometers.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for performing sponsored research and other sponsored activities under grants and contracts funded by the sponsor or by sources other than State appropriations.
