Biotechnology lab Instrumentation:
Biotechnology labarotory is equipped with the most modern intruments that allow students and researchers to do advanced work in their particular areas.
Some instruments from our labarotory
RT-PCR: allows the researhers to quantitative and qualitative analysis of gene expression.
-80 Deep freezer: allows the researchers to preserve the tissue samples for years.
Laminar flow: allows the researhers reliable protection for samples and work processes for a multitude of applications.
Spectrophotometer: allows the researchers to optional photometric measurements with improved properties.
Refrigerated centrifuge: allows the researhers reliable centrifugation for temperature sensitive material such as RNAs.
Autoclave: allows the resarhers to sterilize equipment and supplies at high pressure steam.
Water distilled machine: allows researhers to obtain reliable and pure water for molecular research. Water is double-distillated.
Chemical/Fume hood: allows the researhers reliable protections to hazardous chemicals and fumes,vapors or dusts.
Incubator: allows the researhers to settle the optimal temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen content for microbilogical research.
