Biological and Chemical Analysis Facility

The BioLab is a Biological and Chemical Analysis Facility at FCT-NOVA. This facility is devoted to the comprehension of cellular and molecular mechanisms, from the in vitro characterization of molecular interactions to the in vivo validation in model animals. The BioLab facility gathers in a single unit a unique set of state-of-the-art biophysical and biological technologies.

Available Technologies:

  • Circular Dichroism
  • Multi Parametric Surface Plasmon Resonance
  • Isothermal Titration Calorimetry
  • Differential Scanning Calorimetry
  • MicroScale Thermophoresis
  • Flow Cytometry
