SciLifeLab Umeå / KBC Infrastructure Seminar: BICU and Biomolecule Characterization Unit

Time Tuesday 18 April, 2023 at 12:00 - 13:00
Place Glasburen, KBC, and Zoom

In the frame of the “SciLifeLab Site Umeå / KBC Infrastructure Seminar Series”, the seminars will be organised every second Tuesday during spring 2023. The seminars will be held in a hybrid format IRL in Glasburen, KBC, and online via Zoom. Learn more about the seminar series and Schedule for Spring 2023 here.

On April 18th, 12:00-13:00, SciLifeLab Site Umeå / KBC Infrastructure Seminar Series presents:

Biochemical Imaging Centre Umeå and Biomolecule Characterization Unit. What is new? What is next?

During the seminar, we will present the latest news at The Biochemical Imaging Centre Umeå (BICU) and a new emerging facility: The Biomolecule Characterization Unit (BMCU).

The Biochemical Imaging Centre Umeå (BICU) is an open-access imaging centre that provides state-of-the-art microscopy technology to researchers all over Sweden. We provide access and training to a wide range of instruments and techniques, including widefield, confocal, spinning disc, Tirf microscopy, FLIM, FLIM-FRET, FRAP and super-resolution microscopy on live cells for an optimal spatial and temporal resolution. Furthermore, the centre provides access to atomic force microscopy (AFM) to generate topographical images and measure mechanical properties of samples.

At The Biomolecule Characterization Unit, we offer a comprehensive suite of cutting-edge technologies to help you gain a deeper understanding of molecular interactions and biomolecular structures. Our platform features state-of-the-art SPR, ITC, CD, and QCMD technologies, which provide complementary information on biomolecular interactions, thermodynamics, kinetics, and structural characterization.
