Micron Oxford is an advanced Bioimaging Unit developing and applying cutting edge technologies as well as providing diverse advanced imaging facilities. They help users perform optimum imaging experiments to address their biological questions, offering advice training and advice on experimental design, specimen preparation, image analysis and data storage.
The Advanced Proteomics Facility provides access to the latest proteomics technologies. We can accommodate simple requests such as protein identification all the way up to generation of temporal profiles of entire proteomes and common post translational modifications.
Solution-state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a method that provides detailed information about the structure, dynamics and interactions of biological macromolecules under conditions that can mimic the cellular environment.
We offer a range of techniques to study macromolecules and macromolecular complexes. These include analytical ultracentrifugation, differential scanning calorimetry, electrospray ionization mass spectrometry, isothermal titration calorimetry and surface plasmon resonance. All users must be registered with Dr David Staunton and receive any necessary training.
The Crystallography Facility enables you to apply the methods of X-ray crystallography to your biological questions. We can offer both state of the art equipment and expert advice and training in the use of crystallography for structural biology.
The Central Oxford Structural Molecular Imaging Centre (COSMIC) is a state-of-the-art cryo-electron microscopy facility located in the Kavli Institute for Nanoscience Discovery in the South Parks Rd Science Area at Oxford University. COSMIC facilitates an exciting and diverse range of structural biology research at Oxford with cryo-EM and is also open to external research users as well as industry.
MGSL prepares microbiological growth media, buffers and solutions to order, cleans laboratory glassware and sterilises items such as labware, solutions and biohazard waste. Contact MGSL@bioch.ox.ac.uk for information
* Please note, the Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy facility and the Molecular Biophysics facility are temporarily housed in Phase 2 of the Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin Building. They will return to the Phase 1 basement in 2023
