Mass Spec Start

My samples are on the Mass Spec!


So exciting! To monitor the mass spec progress remotely, we’re using TeamViewer. While my samples are running, it is my responsibility to:

  1. Queue samples. I added all of my samples for both replicates in a random sequence to the program. This can be saved and exported as a sequence file. I also need to add a few samples at a time to the active queue.
  2. Check pressure. If the pressure is too low, I need to delete all items in the active queue, with the exception of the current sample that’s running, immediately and call Emma.
  3. Make sure everything is good. Easier said than done, right?

Once my samples are done, I’ll start analysis using Pecan and Skyline. For now, catch me compulsively checking TeamViewer at 3 a.m.
