The aim of PPS is to serve Swedish researchers in academia as well as industry. The infrastructure is comprised of four geographical nodes in Gothenburg, Lund, Stockholm and Umeå; located at the University of Gothenburg (host university), Lund University, Karolinska Institutet, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Umeå University. PPS offers services within all steps of protein production and purification and the ordered proteins can be produced in six different expression systems (E. coli, P. pastoris, insect cells (BEVS), plant cells, mammalian cells and cell free expression). The local node of PPS at KTH (KTH Protein Factory) is focusing on protein production in mammalian cells.
