Spectroscopy and Peptide Synthesis Platform

Presentation

The spectroscopy and peptide synthesis platform from the Laboratory of Bioimaging and Pathologies (LBP – UMR 7021) is devoted to the measurements of absorption and fluorescence spectra and to the synthesis of peptides. The platform currently includes 5 instruments:

  • Fluorimeter
  • UV-visible absorption spectrophotometer
  • Circular dichroïsm spectrophotometer
  • Microplate reader
  • Peptide synthesizer

All members of the UMR 7021 as well as external users from academic structures could have access to the platform according to the following price list.

The booking of the instruments could be done via Activplanning website.

Remark : New users had to contact first the platform manager to follow instrument trainings in order to acquire good measurement practices and recommendations for use
