Protein Engineering Laboratory

The Protein Engineering and Particle Reacting Laboratory is comprehensively equipped with the most modern equipment for testing properties and functions of proteins with biochemical and biophysical methods. We offer the possibility of recombinant proteins production and purification from different expression platforms. Moreover, the laboratory is prepared for the analysis of reactions occurring between proteins, proteins and DNA, ligands and peptides. We have at our disposal specialist equipment enabling measurement of bioactivity and kinetic parameters in a wide range from pM to mM.

We perform testing within scientific projects and commercial orders.


Production and purification of recombinant proteins from different expression systems

Qualitative and quantitative protein bioanalysis:

  • Identification (MS, MS/MS)
  • Purity (PAGE, WB, SEC, UV-Vis, HPLC/FPLC)
  • Activity (SPR, BLI, MST, ELISA, AlphaScreen, AlphaLISA, UV-NIR, FRET, TR-FRET, TRF, FP)
  • Aggregation/oligomerization (DLS, SEC)
  • Stability (DSC, CD)
  • Structural analysis (CD)
