Anaerobic facilities

alternative text

Many biological systems operate naturally under anaerobic or semi-anaerobic conditions. Their study requires an ability to work under similar conditions. A broad range of biological components also react naturally with molecular oxygen. Study of these components requires access to oxygen free or controlled environments. The Centre has a unique and large suite of dedicated anaerobic facilities that enable use of many experimental methods in controlled environments. Examples include anaerobic X-ray crystallogenesis, protein purification, potentiometry, high-throughput enzyme activity screening and a range of time-resolved spectroscopies.
