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.

SBGrid Structural Biology Software


Provides a collection of 270+ structural biology applications on Linux and OS X computers. A few commercial applications are also supported, including Geneious for cloning and bioinformatics, incentive builds for PyMOL, and for North American labs, the Schrodinger Small-Molecule Drug Discovery Suite. Allows access a complete execution environment that includes the suite of structural biology applications preconfigured to run without any additional settings. Applications can be invoked from the shell prompt; there is no need to set up additional variables, change your path environment, or install supporting applications.

Supercritical fluid/Ultra high performance liquid chromatography (SFC/UHPLC) hybrid system


The 1260 Infinity II SFC/UHPLC Hybrid System allows you to perform supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) and ultrahigh-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) on a single instrument. The system supports pressures up to 600 bar in SFC mode and up to 800 bar in UHPLC mode. Switching between the two modes is easy and can be fully automated.
