The research group manages a set of two laboratories which are setup to accomplish our research goals. Facilities available include:

  • Recombinant DNA (cloning, expressing and mutagenesis);
  • Cell cultures growth;
  • Protein purification and basic biochemical characterization;
  • Optical spectroscopies;
  • Electron Paramagnetic Spectroscopy;
  • Mössbauer Spectroscopy;
  • Rapid Kinetics (Stopped-flow and Rapid Freeze-Quench);
  • Electrochemical techniques applied to biological systems, namely classic bulk and immobilized systems cyclic voltammetry and fast pulse techniques, rotating disc and ring-disk voltammetry (RDE and RRDE), spectroelectrochemistry, electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) and microeletrodes (suitable for resistive media).
Also, strict anaerobic conditions is available through an mBraun anaerobic chamber which can be adapted to most of the above cited procedures.
