Students, industry and academic researchers may access the UNSW Recombinant Products Facility in two main ways, and each incurs different fees:
Become a Registered RPF User
Staff and students from UNSW and affiliated institutes can become registered users of the RPF. This involves being trained and guided by staff to use the equipment at the facility. We can assist you in designing your project and train you at different stages of the protein production and purification pipeline. The training services provided by RPF may range from fully assisted technical support and training, for the infrequent user, to an equipment resource for the experienced user. You will be expected to provide all consumables, buffers and columns if required and will need to also undergo a full lab induction.
To become a Registered RPF User please fill in the Registration form here and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org (Hélène Lebhar, Recombinant Facility Manager).
Once trained, access the online booking system here.
Health and Safety links for Registered Users can be found here:
Request full service
RPF staff can perform all the processing for a project and this option is ideal for industry clients that are not from UNSW or affiliated institutes. A full service can include performing fermentation, mid-stream processing and/or downstream processing. This will incur charges (contact the Director for information regarding pricing). This option is also available for researchers from UNSW and affiliated institutes.
RPF is accredited and contracting work is performed following ISO 9001 standards.
