This facility has a confocal microscope which uses a krypton/argon laser and COMOS software. It is suitable for both single and double labelled fluorescent samples. The Olympus microscope is of the inverted type, and is equipped with phase contrast condensor, transmission detector, and a variety of apochromatic and achromatic objectives. Confocal Assistant software is available for handling of image files.

The School has fluorescence-activated cell scanning capabilities. It is planning to upgrade our capacity in this area to include high-speed sorting and high throughput analysis. Expert assistance will be available and a small charge will be applied to cover costs and maintenance.
Mass Spectrum Analysis of purified proteins and peptides is available.
This facility is based on a BioRad FX Imager. This versatile instrument uses laser based technology and Quantity One software to scan, capture and quantify both radio-isotope and fluorophor labelled molecules. Imaging plates, gels, trays and plates, in a variety of formats, can be scanned. A variety of wavelengths are available to detect commonly used fluorescent molecules.
