Featuring a wide range of capabilities in surface modification, thin films, polymer grafting, biomolecule immobilisation and bioactive coatings in polymers, ceramics and metals.
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.
The Mass Spectrometry & Proteomics Facility provides comprehensive proteomics and quantitative proteomics capabilities for the discovery and quantitation of proteins at extremely high sensitivity.
The Zetasizer Nano ZS (Malvern Instruments, UK) instrument uses light scattering techniques to determine the size distribution profile of particles in suspension.
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.
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.
