The mission of the Protein Technologies Facility (ProTech) is to further research in protein biochemistry and structural biology by overcoming two major bottlenecks in these fields – protein production and purification. We provide high quality protein production in prokaryotic and eukaryotic expression systems, protein purification, and biophysical characterization of proteins. Benefits for customers include:
Our customer base includes research groups at the Campus Vienna Biocenter, and if sufficient capacity remains service is offered to off-campus academic labs or industry.
We hope these services benefit both expert research groups using these techniques by offering cost-effective service, as well as laboratories with little or no experience with protein biochemistry or structural biology, who nevertheless need to perform these types of experiments in order to answer critical questions regarding the biological processes they are studying.
