      Automated Biological Calorimetry Facility Huck Institutes for Life Sciences Penn State University 8 Althouse Lab University Park, PA 16802

      United States

    Description

    Providing high-throughput thermodynamic analysis of biological macromolecule binding and folding to University and outside researchers

    We employ two techniques:
    Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) for studying ligand-macromolecule binding
    Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) for investigating stability and folding thermodynamics
    Our calorimetry instruments are fully-automated and require the least amount of sample of any commercially available instrumentation.

    We also have instrumentation available for protein and lipid quantification.
