Facilities in Molecular & Cell Biology

SBS Building
 
The School of Biological Sciences occupies an 8-floor building with a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment for experimental biology, biotechnology, food and nutritional science, ecology, systematics, animal behaviour, plant and animal science and other areas of research.
 
We also have two Central Facilities Laboratories equipped with sophisticated equipment e.g. ICP-OES, GCMS, GCQQQ triple quadrupole, Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope, Extracellular Flux Analyzer, Flow Injection Analyzer, Flow Cytometer and Cell Sorter Workstation, Microcalorimeter, Microwave Digester, Plant Growth Chamber, Texture analyser, etc

Due to the high resolution images and 3-D reconstructions in confocal laser scanning microscopy, it is widely used in numerous biological science disciplines, from cell biology and genetics to microbiology and developmental biology. CLSM is broadly used in neuroanatomy and neurophysiology studies, as well as morphological studies of cells and tissues; besides, the growing use of new fluorescent proteins coupling this modern microscopic research and cell biology research.

Other applications include resonance energy transfer, stem cell research, photobleaching studies, lifetime imaging, multiphoton microscopy, total internal reflection, DNA hybridization, membrane and ion probes, bioluminescent proteins, and epitope tagging.

Extracellular Flux Analyzer

Extracellular Flux Analyzer

Extracellular Flux Analyzer

 

Seahorse XF Analyzers measure oxygen consumption rate (OCR) and extracellular acidification rate (ECAR) of live cells in a multi-well plate, interrogating key cellular functions such as mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis. XF Analyzers perform compound addition and mixing, label-free analytical detection, and automatic measurement of OCR and ECAR in real time.
