About Us

Bridging the gap between gene and biology

The SPARC BioCentre is formerly The “Advanced Protein Technology Centre and the SIDNET Facility”. We have merged into one core facility that integrates broad technical capabilities in molecular analysis, molecular biology and molecular design including: 

  • Mass spectrometry-based protein analysis, proteomics, and related bioinformatics analyses
  • Amino acid analysis, peptide sequencing and derivatization
  • Molecular archives including cDNA and shRNA libraries and Lentivirus production
  • High-Throughput screening (HTS) and high content research platforms including cell and assay-based small molecules and biologicals screening, and including consultation on assay design and validation 

The SPARC team is enthusiastic about enabling your research projects. We are available to consult on experimental design and will provide letters of support to accompany your research proposals. 

Below are some photos from The SPARC BioCentre Launch/Open House Party in February 2014.
