Lab Tour

Our 2,619 square foot lab is located in the Sorrento Mesa section of San Diego, near many other biotech companies and the tech giant Qualcomm. If you are visiting, use the following link for maps and directions.

Here are two shots of the exterior of our building in the 'Fountain Plaza' tech park.

Specific equipment

This is our Jasco J-715 CD spectropolarimeter, including Peltier temperature control for thermal unfolding studies.

Below is our new Wyatt Technology Calypso device that prepares the samples for concentration-gradient classical light scattering (CG-MALS). This can feed into the same detectors used for SEC-MALS.
