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)
