ILL Lipids Lab
The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) is one of the world’s flagship Centre for neutron science located in Grenoble, France. The Soft Matter Science and Support (SMSS) group at the ILL is responsible for setting up a Deuteration-Lipid extraction facility, the “L-Lab”, initially funded by the SINE2020 grant and in collaboration with the ILL’s D-lab. The idea behind creating this facility was conceived, back in the year 2013, with the main objective of maximizing the application of neutron scattering techniques to understand biological membranes and their behavior. At present, the L-Lab provides a wide range of hydrogenous and deuterated phospholipid mixtures, purified from natural extracts of yeasts and bacteria.
