HeLa or Liver for GST-fishing?

So, I would like to go fishing with my GST-fusion protein and 
microsequence the bands that stick.  I have very small-scale results with 
HeLa extracts and I know my protein is in almost all cells.  The question 
is, should I buy (where can I buy them?) HeLa cells in large quantities 
(we dont have spinner facilities) or just get some rat livers, homogonize 
them, and use that?

I appreciate your comments.

By the way, is nanoelextric mass spec yet available for general use?
