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.
A ProteomeLab XL-A (Beckman Coulter) analytical ultracentrifuge will be available for use in May 2019. Applications include characterizing macromolecular size and shape, and studying macromolecular interactions in solution.
The BIC Facility updated its isothermal titration calorimeter to a new MicroCal PEAQ-ITC, thanks to an internal Equipment Restoration and Renewal grant. The new instrument has been installed and is ready for use.
Supporting biophysical research through sophisticated instrumentation
The BIC Facility provides researchers at Notre Dame and external audiences access to essential tools and equipment for biophysical analysis.
