Purpose of the platform (operated by IBS)

Molecular Biology and Protein Expression Automated Platform

RoBioMol does the following steps using robots and dedicated software:

 Design two oligos for PCR amplification of selected gene
 Clone gene into a choice of expression vectors
 Sequence two positive clones
 Fractionate expression strain
 Small†scale affinity purification (insoluble and soluble fractions)
 Analyses purified protein fractions using SDS†PAGE and Western blot
 Provides a detailed report (with sequence validation of the gene)
 Delivers the expression system (plasmid)
