SPR workshop - Applications in life-science
15 – 16 November 2018
- CEITEC, Kamenice 753/5, 625 00 Brno
Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) is one of the analytical techniques for evaluation of receptor-ligand interaction. SPR allows for complex characterisation of biomolecular interactions - kinetics, affinity, specificity, concentration and thermodynamics. Applications of SPR include biotherapeutics and drug discovery research, protein activity and stability analysis but is also suitable for characterisation of membranes, lipids, nucleic acids and micellar systems. 2-days workshop will be focused on the applications of SPR systems in life-science.
Type of event: Workshop
Core facility: Biomolecular Interaction and Crystallization
Assessment report after workshop
After the last year success of first workshop focused on Surface plasmon resonance we decided to organize another one to promote such a valuable technique. The SPR workshop was a 2-day event with 3 speakers from abroad and 1 from CF BIC attended 30 participants. First day of lectures was followed by one day of practical part where attendees could see and try 2 different instruments based on the SPR principle. As very similar technique even BLI instrument was shown and participants could see the advantage and disadvantage of both techniques. The SPR workshop was organized with the support of BISON project and CIISB project.
