Trematomus Bernacchi (Antarctic fish - Antifreeze proteins) Ice crystal
 

 

 

News

Recently our instruments have been used to search for the presence of ice-active proteins in genetically modified grasses in two different labs around the world.

The nanolitre osmometer assays for thermal hysteresis and the optical recystallometer quantifies the levels of recrystallisation inhibition causes by these ice-active proteins. Used together, these instruments are invaluable to scientists interested in enhancing cold adaptations of various organisms.
