Spatial Imaging Technology Resource (SpITR)

Formally known as the Collaborative Protien Technology Resource (CPTR)
is an open core supported by the Office of Science and Technology Resources (OSTR) dedicated to establishing and implementing cutting-edge molecular profiling technologies to facilitate discovery, translational and clinical research.

Project Management


At the Nanoscale Protein Analysis section of SpITR, we offer expertise and provide state-of-the-art technologies to accommodate the needs of CCR/NCI/NIH investigators.

Simple Western

An automated capillary immunoassay system for precise and accurate measurement of proteins and respective post-translational modifications in a format that is applicable to very small sample sizes.
