The Biophysics Instrumentation Core (BIC) Facility offers sophisticated instrumentation dedicated to characterizing biomolecular conformations and interactions, as well as equipment for the isolation and purification of macromolecules for subsequent detailed biophysical analysis. The BIC Facility is committed to fostering biophysical research at Notre Dame and elsewhere.
New social distancing policies
The BIC Facility has resumed laboratory operations with new social distancing policies in place.
The BIC Facility recently upgraded its ProteomeLab analytical ultracentrifuge to add interference detection to its existing absorbance detection capabilities. The upgraded AUC is now available for use.
A new Optima XPN-90 preparative ultracentrifuge is now available for use. This centrifuge separates components in medium volume samples at max speed of 70k RPM. The current Optima Max-E tabletop ultracentrifuge has also be upgraded to a new Optima MAX-XP tabletop ultracentrifuge.
