The Protein Production Core Facility accepts internal and external requests for services. All work requests are initiated on a first-come, first-served basis, with University of Delaware members receiving priority and all other user requests being fulfilled as soon as possible. We dedicate to providing assistance in the following research areas:
Large scale protein expression
We can perform large scale (10-20L) protein expression in bacterial or yeast system with our BioFlo 4500 fermentor. Please contact Dr. Abraham Lenhoff for further information.
We will purify the protein of interest from natural or recombinant sources. Our facility has two AKTA systems with the capability to purify proteins under room temperature or cold condition. Please contact Dr. Abraham Lenhoff for further information.
Our facility has Proteome XL-I analytical ultracentrifuge for characterization of macromolecule interactions. Please contact Dr. Abraham Lenhoff for further information.
In addition, we provide consultation on experimental design and protocol development for unsupervised users (who can operate the equipments and execute experiments by themselves).
