Nutrition and Biochemistry Laboratories

A 700 sq. ft. nutrition and biochemistry laboratory is well-equipped to conduct rapid clinical chemistry and nutrition tests. Equipment includes centrifuges (clinical, super-speed, micro-ultracentrifuge), spectrophotometers (UV and fluorescence) gel electrophoresis, a high performance fluorescence and chemiluminescence image capturing device, and a fully automated-clinical analyzer. The laboratory also contains a designated section for cell culture work, which includes an environment controlled CO2 incubator for cell growth maintenance and liquid nitrogen cryopreservation system. Other departmental equipment is available to this lab, including cold rooms, additional microscopes, histology equipment, cell culture room with incubators, PCR, a full complement of molecular biology equipment, and dark room with photography equipment.
