Biophysics Platform

1.Purpose of the Platform

The biophysics platform
The ISBG biophysics platform provides a set of instruments for the in vitro characterization of the intrinsic properties of biological macromolecules in solution, biomolecular interactions and their assemblies:

  • - Size, homogeneity and aggregation of macromolecules
  • - Oligomeric states and macromolecular assemblies
  • - Stoichiometry of macromolecular assemblies
  • - Characterization of molecular interactions

The platform is managed by scientists, engineers and technicians with technical and methodological know-how and expertise to assist any scientist in addressing various biological questions and projects.
The biophysics platform is composed of 13 instruments located in different buildings on campus: at IBS, CIBB and EMBL

Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (iTC200 and VP iTC)
Microscale Thermophoresis (MST) Monolith NT115 green/red
Surface Plasmon resonance (SPR: Biacore T200)
Biolayer interferometry (BLI: Octet Red 384)
Fluorescence spectroscopy (steady state or stopped flow)
Analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC)
Dynamic light scattering (DLS) cuvette
Static multi-angle light scattering ( MALS)
Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA)
Mass Photometry (MP one)


Contact: (MALLS, DLS, Fluo, ITC, Mass Photometry, Thermophoresis) (SPR, BLI) (NTA) (AUC, MALLS) (AUC, MALLS)
