Research in the laboratory borrows tools from classical biochemistry, structural biology and biological inorganic chemistry. A couple of the resources at our disposal follow.
The lab is equipped with an Applied Photophysics SX20 stopped flow spectrophotometer with a 2 millisecond deadtime, UV/Vis absorption (PDA, PMT) and fluorescence detection with a number of additional accessories for anaerobic handling, chemical quench, etc..
We regularly use electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy for the detection of unpaired electrons in metalloenzymes and spin-labeled proteins. We make use of a Bruker EMX system with an Oxford cryostat, allowing us to collect spectra from 2 K to room temperature.
