The Biophysics Instrumentation Facility (BIF) is part of the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is located in Room B1408 on the Ground Floor of the Biochemical Sciences Building. The facility provides access to state of the art instrumentation focused on the study of conformations, activities and assembly of biological and other macromolecules. While each instrument provides distinct insight, the ensemble enables a thorough characterization of, structure, function and interaction of biological assemblies. For information regarding instrument training and use, please contact BIF staff (Darrell McCaslin or Dan Stevens).

Open to All Academic and Industrial Researchers

               

The Facility is always on the lookout for new users from departments across campus. If you are interested in having us speak at a group or departmental meeting about our capabilities, please contact Dan Stevens.
