OLIS Cary-16 Circular Dichroism Spectrometer

The OLIS Cary-16 instrument is located in Clement 122.  Circular dichroism (CD) is often used to assess the three-dimensional shapes of proteins.   The Cary-16 is an older CD instrument, but it has been modernized recently by an upgrade done by OLIS.  Students learn how to use this instrument in Physical Biochemistry (Chem-316).  Research students working with Professors Curran and Prigodich also use this instrument.
