The Biomolecular Analysis Facility has equipment which is either not commonly found in individual laboratories or is needed only occasionally by some laboratories. Some equipment is operated by facility personnel, and some is used by individual researchers.

|TYPE OF EQUIPMENT||IMAGE
|Thermo Scientific Q Exactive HF-X|
We have four methods of loading samples into this instrument:
The mass spectrometer has an Orbitrap mass analyzer with a mass range of 50 to 8000, and resolution up to 240,000.
|Bruker MicroFlex MALDI|
This instrument measures masses of intact molecules. Sample preparation is usually relatively simple so this instrument is the first choice to obtain the mass of peptides, proteins and some other molecules.
|Molecular Dynamics Gemini EM SpectraMax Fluorescent plate reader|
|High performance liquid chromatography.|
Variable wavelength UV detector.Used for separation of peptides, proteins and some other molecules, usually with reverse phase columns.
|JASCO J-1500 Circular dichroism spectropolarimeter|
For studies on tertiary structure of proteins.
Operated by researcher. Fee for use.
Brief background on operation here.
fortéBIO Octet RED96 uses BioLayer Interferometry with disposable probes to measure association and dissociation rates of pairs of molecules and hence dissociation constants.
This instrument can perform 8 simultaneous readings. It can also perform quantitation measurements including some equivalent to ELISA,
|Acea RTCA cell analysis instrument|
real time, continuous measurement of cellular activity, including migration, based on impedance measurements
|Biotek ELx800 absorbance plate reader|
absorbance measurements on microtiter plates at 450, 562, 600, 660 nm
