Research Technicians

Petra Jansen

My name is Petra Jansen and I am the research technician in the group of dr. Garry Corthals. Together with dr. Michelle Camenzuli and temporary students and visitors, we form the new biomolecular systems group.

My main task in the group is to keep the TripleTOF mass spectrometer and LC working. The TripleTOF system compromises of quadrapoles and a time of flight mass spectrometer, and is capable in qualitative and quantitative data analysis. An important aspect of the TripleTOF is the ability to run in SWATH modus, which is a data-dependent acquisition.

Aside from keeping the TripleTOF working, I assist students and visitors with their projects. We use samples from fundamental biology research, medical research and from the forensic field, keeping the information different every day.
