The Molecular Interactions Laboratory


The Molecular Interactions laboratory houses a range of equipment for the analysis of the biophysical properties of molecules as well as protein-protein and protein-nucleic acid interactions.  Spectroscopic techniques include UV-visible, fluorescence and circular dichroism in static and rapid-reaction formats, surface plasmon resonance (SPR) and titration calorimetry (ITC) for study of interactions and analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC) and light scattering (SEC-MALLS) for molecular size and shape. We also have mass spectrometry equipment for whole protein MW and native state MS, a multipurpose plate reader system for 96-well plate assays and a phosphor imager system for gel scanning and autoradiography work. We can advise on techniques and train you on most of our equipment, or run experiments as a service depending on your requirements. Our facilities are available to internal and external users and both academic and commercial organisations are welcome to enquire.
