1. Determine the Services Required

For most routine services, the exact services can be found in the detailed descriptions of the services in the links above. For most experiments, it is usually worthwhile to set up a complimentary appointment for a consultation prior to performing any experiments. Even for simple experiments, it is worthwhile to have a brief discussion so everyone is clear about what is needed and what information can be generated. This is particularly true for researchers new to proteomics and/or metabolomics. For proteomics experiments, contact Rakesh Singh (rsingh475@gatech.edu). For metabolomics experiments, contact David Gaul (david.gaul@chemistry.gatech.edu). For other services or if you are not sure, please contact us at symsc@gatech.edu.

2. Fill out a Sample information Sheet

3. Enter information into SUMS

SUMS is GA Tech's Shared User Management System and is used by all Petit Institute Core Facilities to pay for services. If you are not currently in the system, sign up and find instructions here. If you have any difficulties or are requesting specialized services, SyMS-C staff can add the services manually.

Submit samples. Samples can be left outside the laboratories (IBB for metabolomics/ small molecule or EBB for proteomics). If samples are sensitive, please contact us to setup an appointment to hand off samples.  While we are generally available during normal business hours, our exact location varies based on experiments, meeting, etc
