Shared Instrumentation

The Shared Instrumentation section of  the Biomolecular Analysis Facility has several user and core operated instruments and services, largely for studying proteins.

The multi-mode (fluorescence, luminescence, absorbance) plate reader, circular dichroism spectropolarimeter, and molecular interactions instruments are self service instruments in Pinn Hall room 1074 which can be used at any time with appropriate access permissions. New users should contact JJ Park for introductory training. For chromatography service and molecular interactions, contact JJ Park ph.  434.924.0070 to discuss projects aims and sample requirements.

The ScanScope slide scanner, Bio-Rad GS-800 densitometer and ImageQuant software were retired January 2019. The Biorepository and Tissue Research Facility provides a slide scanning service


Users should acknowledge the support of the core by the School of Medicine e.g.
