The ISMB Biophysics
Centre provides access to instrumentation and expertise in the analysis
of biomolecular interactions for scientists in London. A variety of
instrumentation is available for the characterisation of equilibrium
and kinetic behaviours of protein, nucleic acid and small-molecule
interactions on a hire, service or collaborative basis. For an overview
of the methods and techniques available, please click here.
Planning an experiment
Please read the overview for basic
information and contact the Centre Manager
for an information sheet and questionnaire on a specific technique.
More detailed planning will depend on the information you return to us.
Usual pitfalls are the solubility or stability of your sample at the
buffer conditions required and the lack of suitable controls. Thorough
data analysis is essential before conclusions are drawn from any
biophysical experiment. Please discuss this in advance as well.
Please also note that our safety regulations
need to be followed in any case..
Bookings can be made and
viewed here. If
no valid login, please book through the Centre Manager.
Charges depend on the instrument and on the amount of training required
and service to be provided. We charge to cover cost and only if there
is sufficient funding on your project. Please enquire. For future
projects involving the Biophysics Centre please contact us well in
advance of your grant application.
