Information for Industry

Instruct-ERIC has strong links to industry, and we are keen to widen access further to industry partners. We can facilitate research from pre-competitive early research all the way through to translational approaches. Through Instruct you can gain access to high end technologies and foster collaborations with leading experts in the field. Such collaborations can save huge costs for training and investment in instrumentation.

 In the last three years, Instruct centres have hosted access visits from over 50 industry partners, representing companies from the Biotech, Pharma, Health, Chemistry, Biomaterials and Agrifood sectors. This includes university spin-off companies, small medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and large companies. 

Services regularly used include cryo-EM, X-ray crystallography, NMR, protein production, EPR, analytical ultracentrifugation, surface plasmon resonance, DSC crystallography and small angle X-ray scattering.

Instruct has well-developed partnerships with manufacturers of the technology used in Instruct Centres, including Bruker, Agilent, Rigaku, FEI, Qiagen and Leica Microsystems. These companies have worked with Instruct scientists to implement new methodologies and real advances have been made, especially in imaging technologies in recent years. 


For pre-competitive (non-proprietary) research where the users agree to publication of data arising from the access, the academic fee will be levied by the Instruct Centre. (A publication delay can be negotiated to allow IP and patent processes).

For proprietary research where users own the outcome of the work and there is no requirement to publish, a commercial fee will be levied by the Instruct Centre. Intellectual Property (IP) issues must be agreed before commencement of the access.
