Molecular Biology Laboratory

We have facilities for the molecular analysis of RNA, DNA and proteins, including

  • Thermocylers - Amplification of DNA via PCR or RNA to DNA via RT-PCR
  • Biorad D-Code Universal Mutation Detection System - Detection of single-base changes in DNA by the Single-stranded conformation polymorphism (SSCP), Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), Constant denaturing gel electrophoresis (CDGE) or Temporal temperature gradient gel electrophoresis (TTGE)
  • NuGenius Gel Doc System - Imaging of agarose or acrylamide gels
  • Applied Biosystems StepOne Plus Real-time PCR System - Quantitative analysis of DNA
  • Applied Biosystems QuantStudio 3 Real-time PCR System - Quantitative analysis of DNA
  • Telstar Mini V/PCR Vertical Laminar Flow Bench - UV hood for oligonucleotide disruption to prevent contamination when performing PCR
  • Qiagen Pyrosequencer - Sequence-based detection for rapid and accurate quantification of sequence variation in genetic material
  • Wallac Victor 2 Plate Reader - luminescent or colourimetric analysis of well plates assays
  • CLARIOstar Microplate Reader - Analysis of well-plate assays
  • Biotek Cytation Plate Reader - Cell imaging multi-mode Reader for capturing rich phenotypic cellular information and quantitative data
  • Luminex system - Multiplex analysis of up to 100 analytes in a single microplate well
