  • Instrument:
  • A. PCR Thermocyclers

    PCR Thermocyclers, a hardware or machines which are made specifically for PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction), this machine can automatically regulate the optimal temperatures for PCR cycling.

    B. Fast protein liquid chromatography (FPLC)

    FPLC, a packed system, used to separate or purify proteins and other polymers from complex mixtures. This system is a complete system for laboratory scale chromatographic separations of proteins and other biomolecules.

    C. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)

    HPLC, a chromatographic system that can separate a mixture of compounds and is used in biochemistry and analytical chemistry to identify, quantify and purify the individual components of the mixture.

    D. Bioreactor (3 liters)

    PCR Thermocyclers, a hardware or machines which are made specifically for PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction), this machine can automatically regulate the optimal temperatures for PCR cycling.

    E. Inverted Microscope

    This is used for observing living cells or organisms at the bottom of a large container (e.g. a tissue culture flask) under more natural conditions.

    F. Rotary evaporator

    This is a device used in chemical laboratories for the efficient and gentle removal of solvents from samples by evaporation.

    G. Sonicator

    This is a device used in sufficient to disrupt or deactivate a biological material.

    H. Protein electrophoresis system, DNA electrophoresis system

    A packed system, it is used for protein and DNA electrophoresis.
