Multidisciplinary Molecular Interaction Core

Directory Category: Core

The Multidisciplinary Molecular Interaction Core (MMIC) supports a GE Biacore T200 optical biosensor instrument which employs surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technology for monitoring label-free real-time biomolecular interactions between macromolecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids as well as small molecules. The instrumentation provides determinations of binding specificities; kinetics; affinity; concentration determination, and epitope mapping. The core is available on a fee-per-use basis, either with or without the assistance (for GE trained users) of a dedicated expert operator of the equipment. Consultation and Training are available for all users of the facility.
