|The Collaborative Program has laboratories outfitted with A wide array of equipment for protein characterization. These facilities are located in Botterell Hall: a Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry laboratory containing MicroMass Q-TOF mass spectrometer and an Applied Biosystems DE-Pro MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer; an Imaging Center containing a Leica multi-photon confocal microscope and digital fluorescence microscopes equipped for microinjection; a Protein Interaction Laboratory equipped with Biacore, analytical ultracentrifuge, micro-calorimeters, fluorescence lifetime spectrometer and rapid scanning CD and UV spectrophotometers. Associated researchers specialize in Protein Structure Determination utilizing X-ray crystallography and a 600 MHz NMR spectrometer.
Researchers at Queens University, in other Canadian research institutes and industry are all welcome to take advantage of any pieces of equipment or services. Training is provided to researchers and their laboratory members for most pieces of equipment.
