In recent years the equipment for the analysis of biomacromolecular and supramolecular compounds has been grouped into priority units, networked and developed into a Core Facility with support of the German Research Foundation (DFG). Further progress was made in networking the units with external partners at regional and international levels. BioSupraMol emerged from this as an independent Core Facility, consisting at present of five units. The aim of the Core Facility is, to help scientists and students of the Freie Universität Berlin, in particular those of the Department of Biology, Chemistry, and Pharmacy at the Freie Universität Berlin as well as external scientists in solving complex analytical issues by an experienced staff. The spectrum of methods is available for interested scientists as a service or in the form of cooperation on projects. Being an institution financed by public funds the Core Facility does not aim to compete with commercial institutions. The scientific focus is on the analysis of weakly interaction molecular systems and matches the core competencies of the research association.
