Biophysical Technology Center

Overview of Services

 

COVID-19 UPDATE

Only trained, independent users may reserve instruments. To maintain proper social distancing, instruments may not be reserved or used by more than one person at a time until further notice.  

Users must wear proper PPE: face mask, gloves, lab coat, eye protection. Do not operate instruments if you feel ill. Sanitize or wash hands upon entry and exit. Wipe down instruments and surfaces with 70% ethanol (do not spray instruments directly). Cleaning products and PPE are provided, but to conserve resources the BTC appreciates if you bring your own supplies.

The Biophysical Technology Center is a self-supporting non-profit Internal Service Organization in the University of Minnesota under the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics. It is open as a first priority to all University of Minnesota researchers, and to outside researchers by arrangement. The center goal is to make state-of-the-art instrumental resources for optical spectroscopy and EPR available to researchers, providing a venue for them to pursue their projects and develop their experience. Top priorities of the center personnel are to maintain the performance of these instruments at the highest level and to provide basic training to new users. In addition, the resident expertise in the center is available to facilitate spectroscopy efforts and contribute to the scientific research efforts of users in the development of strategies for data analysis.
