CD Services

CD Service

In addition to instrument training, the CMI is now offering basic protein Circular Dichroism Data Collection services, including Far-UV scan and thermal denaturation experiments.

CD Service Overview

Circular Dichroism (CD)

CMI CD Instrument: Jasco J-815

  • Protein Far-UV Scan for Secondary Structure Analysis
    • this will strictly be a data collection service and analysis using CD deconvolution algorithms (e.g. Dichroweb) will be left to the user.
  • Protein Thermal Stability (fixed wavelength variable temperature measurement)


Data Collection Fees Summary

Data Collection Fees

  • Limited Data Collection Services are offered. Service fees will be charged for all completed services, regardless of experimental outcome. 
  • Before submitting samples for data collection, users must approve the estimated charges and be given a date and time for sample delivery.
    • External Users will also be required to submit a PO and a signed CMI User Agreement.
  • Most CMI Data Collection Services include a setup fee plus a per-sample data collection fee. Some services include one or more replicate measurements by default in the sample fee (e.g. DLS and DSF). For others, there may be reduced-price replicate measurement fee (e.g. SEC-MALS and CD) if collected in the same dataset.
