PX-Oslo – UiO Structural Biology Core Facilities


The UiO Structural Biology core facilities provide service and advice regarding structural biology techniques. We can assist in the whole process from construct design to structure determination. Our core competence is in protein crystallography, therefore we call us PX-Oslo.

In addition to protein crystallography, we also work with X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS/SANS), quantitative biophysical characterization, structural mass spectrometry and cryo-EM. Although NMR spectroscopy is not our core competence, we tightly collaborate with NMR experts and are happy to provide advice and contacts. 

We have regular access to synchrotrons and other cutting-edge international facilities that allow us to collect high quality data. 


Location

Our facilities are located at four locations in Oslo: the UiO Department of Chemistry, the Department of Biosciences, NCMM and Oslo University Hospital. These facilities comprise the Oslo node of the national Norwegian Macromolecular Crystallography Consortium NORCRYST, and will play an important role in the new Life Science building.
