Services

List of services provided by CF BIC.  Measurements are performed by CF BIC staff after obtaining samples from users. The results are available within a week.

 Services are booked via intranet system (for more information HERE)

Sedimentation velocity

Sedimentation velocity method can be used for determination of sample dispersity, oligomeric state of proteins, the shape of the particle and it is also suitable for analysis of aggregates and a study of biomolecular interactions.

Initial training for instruments in user mode (operated by users him-herself)

Initial training for instruments which are operated by users him/herself. This includes Biacore T200 (SPR), multichannel SPR imaging system, DelsaMax Core (DLS), Jasco J-815 (CD), VP-ITC, VP-DSC, Monolith NT.115 Nano (MST), Prometheus (DSF), microdeposition system for biosensor arrays and gradient incubator for optimizing protein crystallization temperature.

Training is performed by CF BIC staff - responsible person for each instrument. Without this training users cannot operate the instruments on their own.​ ​
