Internal users

A daily charge is made for use of the instruments.  Booking for users within Cambridge University is via an electronic booking system which requires a university Raven account.  Users may only book time if they have received the proper training.  Users from departments other than Biochemistry must provide a PO.

External users

External users are welcome to apply for access.  In this case, please contact the facility manager (Dr Katherine Stott, ks123 at, 01223 333669) to discuss your requirements. External users must provide a PO, and other terms and conditions apply.

Authorship and acknowledgements

We follow the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities guidelines.  Facility staff must get proper credit where they have made substantive contributions to a project, or where experiments and/or analysis are of a non-routine nature.


We keep a limited stock of e.g. SPR chips and Octet biosensors.  Please ask us for details.


Affiliated instruments in Structural Biology include NMR spectrometers, X-ray diffractometers and nanodroplet crystallisation robots; these are located elsewhere in the Sanger building.
