Joint Research Group Macromolecular Crystallography
The HZB-MX BioLab
The HZB-BioLab at Adlershof is located attached to the BESSY II experimental hall near the cargo port.
It is operated by the MX-group to support external and internal users of the HZB for preparing their biological samples (safety level S1).
In addition, it serves as the basis for the expression and purification of recombinant proteins suitable for crystallisation experiments.
The BioLab was completely remodelled in spring 2011. It consists of three separate rooms with different functionalities: sample preparation, crystallization, protein purification and cell cultivation.
