Biochemistry Departmental Equipment
The equipment listed on this page is typically available for all users in the department to access for their research needs. By sharing the equipment labs are able to access equipment that is either not regularly used or might be cost prohibitive for an individual lab to purchase and maintain.
Purification of fluorescent compounds.
Supports validating pipette and user accuracy in air displacement pipettes.
Detect protein or nucleic acid crystals and distinguish them from other crystals or crystal-like contaminants that appear in crystallization trials.
To support for genotype analysis, transcriptome analysis, or other applications where qPCR has been used.
High throughput measurement of fluorescence and luminescence in cells, lysates and supernatants that have or have been treated with virus.
Disruption of E. coli and yeast cells for the production of cell extracts
To support shared user access and software packages introduced as part of the Steenbock Biochemistry Library mini courses. Mini courses will be offered to students and postdocs in the Dept of Biochem as students progress, they will learn how to launch larger numbers of computing jobs. Teaching materials will be designed around specific user-friendly software packages (e.g SBGrid)
Used to quantify proteins, lipids, peptides using IR absorbance properties.
Provide Qseq and NGen software packages via Biochem IT. This is in addition to the DNA Star Lasergene Core Suite.
Updated software and hardware to allow researchers to continue utilizing the Gel Doc system with modern Windows operating systems. The camera in the Gel Doc system was updated to a 2.0 MP camera allowing higher resolution gel images. The new computer configuration allows users to quickly and easily transfer their images directly to the Biochemistry File Server.
