LP3 - Lund Protein Production Platform

Lund Protein Production Platform, LP3, is a cross-faculty facility for protein production, purification and crystallization, primarily directed at academic research groups based at Lund University.

The services available include

  • Cloning - design of a vector construct, ordering of a synthetic gene, cloning and plasmid preparation.
  • Protein production in bacterial (E. coli) or eukaryotic (insect) cells.
  • Microbiological growth monitoring (Bioscreen C).
  • Protein labeling (seleno-methionine incorporation, labeling with stable isotopes (2H, 13C, 15N), biotinylation, phosphorylation).
  • Protein purification using state of the art chromatography equipment.
  • Development of expression and purification protocols.
  • High-throughput protein crystallization.

LP3 works as an intellectual hub for exchange of scientific ideas and for dissemination and assimilation of new methodologies for protein production, purification and analysis. The service facility is integrated with research training and development of skills in experimental protein science for PhD students and postdocs.

What are the costs?

In view of the customized nature of the services provided it is necessary to obtain a quotation from LP3 for the desired work.
