Biophysical Characterization of Proteins
The biophysics room (room 147) of the BMWZ focusses on the characterization of recombinantly expressed proteins. For purification of these proteins the room offers two Äkta Pure Systems incl. fraction collectors and different columns for chromatography. For further analysis of the purified proteins the room provides an Isothermal calorimeter, a table-top ultracentrifuge and fluorescence microarray readers. In room 216, the BMWZ provides additionally equipment like a Gel Documentation Instrument, a micro volume spectro-photometer, a fluorescence Microscope and an area for preparation of gels for Protein- or DNA-analyses.
