Recombinant Products Facility: Protein Production, Purification and Characterisation at UNSW
The Recombinant Products Facility has been set up to help researchers fast track their projects at any stage of their protein production pipeline (from a protein production by fermentation to its purification and characterisation). Thanks to their extensive experience, the RPF staff can assist you in designing your project and train you on any equipment listed below.
|Capability and services offered||
Protein expression by fermentation: Upstream processing:
Sample harvest and conditioning: Midstream processing:
Protein purification: Downstream processing:
|Training offered||Training can be provided for all of the pieces of equipment mentioned above.|
|Costs||Costs start from $50 per day or $1,000 for an annual subscription. More information is available here on the RPF website.|
Access to the UNSW Recombinant Products Facility is by one of two mechanisms and is for the most part, restricted to UNSW staff and students (or affiliated Institutes).
Under the first mechanism, we can assist you in designing your project and train you at different stages of the protein production and purification pipeline. The training services provided by RPF may range from a fully assisted technical support and training for the infrequent user to an equipment resource for the experienced user. You will be expected to provide all consumables, buffers and columns if required and will need to also undergo a full lab induction. Once trained, you can access to the online booking system of the facility.
The second mechanism is where RPF staff provides a full service in terms of performing fermentation, mid-stream processing and/or downstream processing. This will incur charges (contact the Director for information regarding pricing).
