Short description of shared resource
The instrument uses Pressure Cycling Technology (PCT) based on repeated cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.7 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 45,000 psi). These rapid changes in pressure are used to control biomolecular interactions for applications such as accelerated proteolytic digestion and improved extraction of cellular components, including proteins and lipids. The PCT platform allows for a high degree of safety, speed, reproducibility, and convenience in modern sample preparation protocols.
