Profile

The Biophysical Characterisation Facility is a research and development hub for the measurement and analysis of protein-protein and drug-protein interactions.

From its base at UniSA’s Sansom Institute for Health Research, the facility aims to play a key role in South Australia’s protein research pipeline. Its research capabilities include the investigation of protein molecular interactions, protein thermodynamics, kinetics, secondary structure, folding, stability and drug interaction.

The facility is accessible to researchers from both academia and industry.

 

Products and services

Its research capabilities include the investigation of protein molecular interactions, protein thermodynamics, kinetics, secondary structure, folding, stability and drug interaction. Equipment includes a Jasco CD Spectropolarimeter, Isothermal Calorimeter and a Biacore® T100.
