Tube-Gel: A Fast and Effective Sample Preparation Method for High-Throughput Quantitative Proteomics
Sample preparation is a key step in proteomics workflows. Tube-gel (TG) is a fast and repeatable sample preparation method that consists in the instantaneous trapping of the sample in a polyacrylamide gel matrix. It takes advantage of in-gel sample preparations by allowing the use of high concentrations of sodium-dodecyl sulfate but avoids the time-consuming step of electrophoresis. Therefore, TG limits the sample handling and is thus particularly suitable for high-throughput quantitative proteomics when large sample numbers have to be processed, as it is often the case in biomarker research and clinical proteomics projects.
