ITC service

The laboratory of Medical Biochemistry is open to collaborations with partners from both Academia and Industry for conducting interaction analyses using Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC). This methodology allows to thermodynamically characterize binding events based on heat exchange.

What do we offer?

  • PEAQ-ITC equipment (Malvern Instruments)
  • Expertise in experimental design
  • Experience in data analysis

How do we operate?

Before the measurements take place, sample requirements and experimental design are discussed with our partner in order to generate an experimental set-up. Depending on the necessary steps, sample preparation can be performed in the partner lab and/or in our lab. The operation of the ITC machine itself can only be performed by our dedicated staff, due to the delicate nature of the procedures. Results are analyzed in close contact with the partner, in relation to the research questions.

Modalities

Our service is subject to a half-day rate, which depends on the nature of the collaboration (Academia or Industry, co-authorship, consumable usage, ….). For enquiries or questions, please contact the daily ITC coordinator Dr. Pieter Van Wielendaele (pieter.vanwielendaele@uantwerpen.be)
