Lund Protein Production Platform, LP3, is a cross-faculty facility for protein production and isolation at Lund University. LP3 aims to provide a high quality recombinant protein production service, as close to cost price as possible, primarily to academic research groups based at Lund University. The services offered by LP3 range from a complete service to any of the many selected and specialized steps involved in the production and purification of native and recombinant proteins.
When the facility is fully operational it will have the expertise and equipment necessary to produce and purify milligram amounts of proteins using a wide range of expression systems and host cells including mammalian, insect and microbial cells. Currently microbial production systems are available, and we are in the process of establishing the Baculovirus Expression Vector System (BEVS) – a system for expression of recombinant proteins in insect cells.
LP3 works as an intellectual hub for exchange of scientific ideas and for dissemination and assimilation of new methodologies for protein production, purification and analysis. The service facility is integrated with research training and development of skills in experimental protein science for PhD students and postdocs.
