Reagents and Resources
The laboratory is well equipped for modern, state-of-the-art biomedical research using newly purchased equipment, as described below.
Microscopy and Cell Culture
Chemistry and Biochemistry
Animal Physiology and Human Biomedical Sample Preparation
Dissecting tools, gradient-forming equipment for separations, etc.
Molecular Biology and Physical Biochemistry
Reagents used in the laboratory are of the highest grade commercially available. A wide variety of oligonucleotides for molecular biology (cloning and gene expression analysis) are designed in-house and obtained from Integrated DNA Technologies. Antibodies for immunofluorescence and/or immunohistochemical localization of novel disease biomarkers and other biomolecules are typically from suppliers with extensive application testing and validation, such as Sigma, Cell Signaling and, especially, Abcam.
