With the "Analysis Platform for Molecular Mechanisms and Cellular Functions" consisting of four components, three bioscientists are striving to significantly expand the biomedical analysis possibilities at the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg (H-BRS).
This project is funded by a large-scale equipment initiative of the German Research Foundation. The already well-established research of the Institute for Functional Gene Analysis (IFGA) in the field of nucleic acid analysis, is now to be further developed by establishing additional functional investigations.
- A binding analysis device based on microscaled thermophoresis contributes an innovative approach to the characterisation of interactions involving proteins.
- A multi-mode detection device for UV/Vis, fluorescence and luminescence allows, among other things, a variety of enzyme activity tests and imaging investigations.
- An automated patch clamp system and a system for solid-supported membrane (SSM)-based electrophysiology for high-resolution transporter studies provide the equipment basis for expanding research into inborn errors of metabolism, channelopathies and drug design.
