Biomolecular analysis facilities
The Biomolecular Analysis Core Facility is a state-of-the-art resource for the identification of proteins and the subsequent investigation of their size, shape and interactions.
The facility is one of the largest of its kind in the country. It contains nine complimentary biophysical analysis systems.
They are supported by high resolution electrophoretic and chromatographic micro separation systems.
Five dedicated facility staff provide service support for the most popular applications as well as developing and establishing new methodologies using the equipment. Recent publications using data created within the facility include ones in Nature and Journal of Cell Science.
- Analytical ultracentrifugation
- Circular dichroism (CD)
- Fluorescence spectroscopy
- Multi-angle light scattering
- Surface plasmon resonance
The facility has been set up to promote and facilitate the use of biomolecular analysis techniques in the Faculty. There are a number of different modes of interaction with the facility including tailored project advice, full service provision, project work involving facility staff and supported instrument access.
