[ Cell Culture | Micro/nano-scale Instrumentation | Robots and Automation Station]

Cell Culture

  • Cell culture facility set up for prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell types, including bacteria, archaea, fungi, motile micoorganisms (amoeba, giardia, t. foetus), and several mammalian cell lines.
  • Fully integrated cell culture environment with nano-instrumentation.
  • Plant Growth Chamber with the precise monitoring and controlling of humidity, temperature, light, and gas levels.

Micro/nano-scale Instrumentation

  • Integrated nanoindentor and atomic force microscope (AFM) system from Asylum.
  • CytoViva dark-field based illumination system used for enhanced nano-scale visualization and characterization.
  • Digital Holographic Microscope (DHM-T1000) enabling non-invasive real-time 3D imaging with nanometer vertical resolution.
  • Stereo microscope integrated with high magnification video recording for time-lapse imaging of moving micro-scale objects/cells.
  • Dynamic light scattering (DLS) system.
  • EoSens CoaXPress CXP-6 high speed camera capable of capturing full HD resolution images at over 900 frames per second.
  • Olympus FluoView 1000 Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy.
  • Agilent High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC 1100) equipped with a diode array detector (DAD) and an evaporative light scattering detector (ELSD).
  • ABI 433A Peptide Synthesizer automated and programmable for solid-phase peptide synthesis.

Robots and Automation Station
