The Pharmacia PhastSystem high-speed electrophoresis system consists of a separation unit for system control and electrophoresis, and a gel staining unit. Electrophoresis is performed on a thermostatic plate capable of maintaining precise temperatures from 0 to +70°C. Multi-step programming capability allows gels to be preloaded, loaded and run automatically. Controlled parameters include: temperature, voltage, current, power and volt-hours.

The electronic paramagnetic resonance (EPR) laboratory of INMA has a Bruker ELEXSYS 580 spectrometer, capable of performing experiments in continuous mode in X and Q bands (around 9.5 GHz and 34 Ghz, respectively), and in pulsed mode in X band. It is the only pulsed EPR spectrometer currently available in Spain. This technique allows the characterization of paramagnetic states in systems of biological interest, including the study of redox mechanisms in proteins, structural characterization of active centers in metalloproteins, or the study of structures in intrinsically disordered proteins, among others. The technique also allows the characterization of paramagnetic systems in areas such as catalysis, spintronics or quantum computing with electronic spins.
