Tissue Culture Laboratories
of the major equipment in the Centre:
Varian SpectaAA-500 atomic absortion spectrometer is heavily
used in our trace element research.
- Our real time PCR (Applied Biosystem 7500) is proving very useful
for studies of mRNA changes in cells and tissues.
- The phosphorimager (Fujifilm BAS-1800) and ChemiDoc systems (Fujifilm
LAS 3000) are used by most groups for detection of radioactive or fluorescent
material on blots.
- Our Amersham Pharmacia AKTApurifier 10 Core System (GE Lifesciences) is regularly used by our research groups in the purification and analysis of proteins using a number of chemistries including gel filtration/size-exclusion and ion exchange.
