Monash Protein Production Unit

The Monash Protein Production Unit is a specialised protein production and purification facility. We have expertise in the production of recombinant proteins involving the generation of DNA constructs through to biophysical analysis of recombinant purified proteins.

La Trobe Mass Spectrometry & Proteomics

The Mass Spectrometry & Proteomics Facility provides comprehensive proteomics and quantitative proteomics capabilities for the discovery and quantitation of proteins at extremely high sensitivity.

Dynamic Light Scattering

The Zetasizer Nano ZS (Malvern Instruments, UK) instrument uses light scattering techniques to determine the size distribution profile of particles in suspension.

CSIRO Collaborative Crystallisation Centre (C3)

The CSIRO Collaborative Crystallisation Centre (C3) is a full service protein crystallisation centre specialising in both screening and optimisation. C3 provides both expert and novice users access to technologies which will enable the rapid and efficient sampling of crystallisation space. Our core competency is high-throughput small volume (sub-microlitre) dispensing coupled with automatic imaging, but our strength lies in our ease of use, range of services and expert advice.

Melbourne Magnetic Resonance

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy determines the structures of molecules ranging from small chemicals to macromolecular proteins and nucleic acids. The NMR Facility contains eight NMR spectrometers available to academic and industry users on a fee for use basis. The massive 800 MHz high-field NMR spectrometer equipped with cyroprobe technology is signficant in its size and capability.

Melbourne Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics.

Do it yourself mass spectrometry. This facility has seven mass spectrometers and associated HPLC systems and bioinformatics infrastructure. We teach you how to perform your own experiments using our equipment.
