Area: Clinical Analysis Suite
Platform Name: Sample Prep/Cell Culture Lab
Model/Type: Biosafety Cabinet 2
Description: Our Academic Molecular Research Lab is equipped for sample preparation and cell culture with biological safety cabinets/fume hoods, freezers, ultra-centrifuges, centri-vap, rapid-vap, pipettes micro-balances, gel-doc systems etc.
  • Microscope: Leica DM 2000 (shared)
    With its sophisticated modular design and high-performance fluorescence, the DM2000 is ideal for complex tasks in pathology and cytology, and many other applications.
  • SpectroLinker XL-1000 UV crosslinker
    The Spectrolinker XL-1000 UV crosslinker was made for applications including eliminating PCR contamination, cross-linking DNA and RNA, nicking ethidium-bromide stained DNA, gene mapping, Rec A mutation screening and testing, UV sterilization, UV-induced polymerization, and UV intensity monitoring. It comes with a smart microprocessor controller and true UV monitoring circuitry which allow for results to be released faster and error free. The UV-monitoring assures set dosage is delivered protecting important test results from washout damage. The system increases the visibility of samples on autoradiograms, which can help provide better analysis.
  • Gel Doc XR+ BIO RAD
    Gel Doc, also known as Gel Documentation System, Gel Image System or Gel Imager, is widely used in molecular biology laboratories for the imaging and documentation of nucleic acid and protein polyacrylamide or agarose gels typically stained with ethidium bromide or other fluorophores such as SYBR Green.

    The Gel Doc XR+ system is based on CCD high-resolution, high-sensitivity detection technology and modular options to accommodate a wide range of samples and support multiple detection methods including fluorescence and densitometry. The system is controlled by Image Lab software to optimize imager performance for fast, integrated, and automated image capture and analysis of various samples.
