Project description

With the present project proposal, an ultracentrifuge is requested by different departments from the Faculty Veterinary Medicine (FVM). The ultracentrifuge will be used to concentrate/purify virus particles/subcellular fractions/extracellular vesicles for different molecular characterizations. At present, there is one ultracentrifuge of 20 years old at the FVM with several defects and rotors of 30-40 years old that are dangerous in use.
