Analytical ultracentrifugation: ProteomeLab XL-I and AUC Optima
Beckman Coulter ProteomeLab XL-I analytical ultracentrifuge is equipped with absorbance (wavelength range 190 – 800 nm) and interference optics and can be used for both sedimentation velocity and sedimentation equilibrium experiments. Analytical ultracentrifugation is applicable for proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, polysaccharides, viruses, and nanoparticles. It has broad applicability including the determination of sample homogeneity, oligomeric state of proteins (or molecular weight, respectively) and can be used to assess aggregation of sample and to study biomolecular interactions of self- and hetero-association systems (determination of stoichiometry and affinity).
Fully automated isothermal calorimeter Auto PEAQ-ITC with ultrasmall working cell (200 µl). ITC method is used for characterization of biomolecular interactions of small molecules, proteins, antibodies, nucleic acids, lipids and others. Enzyme kinetics, biological activity or the effect of molecular structure changes on binding mechanism can be also assessed. Complete thermodynamic profile of the molecular interaction in a single experiment (stoichiometry, Ka, ∆H and ∆S values).
VP-ITC is isothermal calorimeter with 1400 µl volume of working cell. ITC method is used for characterization of biomolecular interactions of small molecules, proteins, antibodies, nucleic acids, lipids and others. Complete thermodynamic profile of the molecular interaction can be obtained in a single experiment (stoichiometry, Ka, ∆H and ∆S).
PEAQ-DSC is differential scanning microcalorimeter with <200 µl volume of sample capillaries. DSC technique measures the heat changes that occur in the (bio)molecule sample solution during a controlled increase or decrease in temperature, on the basis of a temperature difference between the sample and the reference material. Automated version of PEAQ-DSC enables to run up to 282 samples in a row unattended.
VP-DSC is differential scanning microcalorimeter with 500µl volume of sample cell. DSC technique measures heat changes that occur in the (bio)molecule sample solution during a controlled increase or decrease in temperature, on the basis of a temperature difference between the sample and the reference material.
Differential scanning fluorimetry: Prometheus NT.48
Prometheus precisely characterizes thermal unfolding, chemical denaturation and aggregation in a single run within broad temperature range (15 - 110 °C). It is possible to measure up 48 samples in one run.
Microscale thermophoresis: Monolith NT.115
The Monolith systems measure equilibrium binding constants for a variety of molecules – thus allows to measure wide range of interactions from ion fragment binding up to interactions of large complexes (liposomes and ribosomes).
Microscale thermophoresis: Monolith NT.115 Pico
The Monolith systems measure equilibrium binding constants for a variety of molecules – thus allows to measure wide range of interactions from ion fragment binding up to interactions of large complexes (liposomes and ribosomes). Monolith NT.115 Pico allows analysis of high-affinity interactions down to pM range.
Biolayer interferometry: Octet RED96e
Biosensor system Octet utilizes BLI technology (biolayer interferometry) to detect the interaction parameters (kinetics, affinity) on a sensor chip. Octet RED96e enables simultaneous measurement of 8 channels ensuring high throughput. System is suitable especially for protein-protein or protein-nucleic acid interactions, however other binding systems can be evaluated as well.
Surface plasmon resonance: BiaCore S200
Biacore S200 is a successor of T200 model with higher sensitivity. This system monitors real-time, label-free interactions ranging from ions to viruses. The system offers a powerful, versatile solution for obtaining the highest quality kinetic, affinity, concentration, specificity, selectivity, and thermodynamic data and can be used for multiple applications, from early research to drug discovery and development. In the arrangement, one of the interactants is immobilized on the sensor chip surface, while the other is passed over that surface in solution.

Multichannel (36) SPR biosensor system for affinity studies of biomolecules, flow-through design, parallel analysis of samples.
Analytical size-exclusion chromatography coupled to an array of detectors including UV-VIS spectrometer, refractometer, viscometer and static light scattering (RALS/LALS). Suitable for analysis of sample purity, oligomeric state of proteins, study of complexes and other experiments.
Dynamic (static) light scattering: DelsaMax Core
Dynamic light scattering is used for the analysis of protein solutions, aggregates, promiscuous inhibitors, buffers, nanoparticles, polymers or other products in solution. DLS system measures the polydispersity of the sample and hydrodynamic radii (size) of the particles within range of 0.4 to 5,000 nm. This is particularly beneficial in sample characterization prior to crystallization or other experiments.
