Welcome to the OPPF-UK

The Oxford Protein Production Facility-UK (OPPF-UK) is a core facility for protein production and crystallization at the Research Complex at Harwell.

We have developed a range of highly specialized technologies incorporating robotic systems to enable the high throughput expression, purification and crystallization of recombinant proteins.

The OPPF-UK is located in the Research Complex at Harwell, adjacent to the Diamond Light Source.
