Services of the BMA platform Geneva
The BMA Platform Geneva provides state of the art protein analytical services. After a period of genomics and proteomics, the emphasis on the characterization of particular biochemical systems is reinforced. Our platform offers technology to analyse protein systems, their interaction and complexes. Currently, the Geneva Bio-molecular Analysis Platform offers 3 major services:
1) Multi Angle Light Scattering (MALS) analysis
MALS is used to determine the oligomeric state, the molecular mass Mw and the quality of a biological macromolecule or macromolecular complex. It is coupled online to size exclusion chromatography.
2) Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC)
ITC is a non-invasive technique to determine precise binding parameters (enthalpy, entropy, and binding constants) for molecular interactions between proteins, nucleic acid and chemicals. It is also a powerful method to analyse enzyme kinetics.
3) Consulting in recombinant protein technology (expression & purification)
We will assist researchers of the Swiss Plant Science Web to prepare high quality protein samples for biophysical analysis by MALS, ITC, and other state of the art methods.
