Isolated Tissue Culture RoomWet Lab 1, located in MEB 2488 (350 sq ft) is equipped for culture, mechanical testing, molecular biology and microscopic analyses of cells and tissues.

Equipment includes:

  • a Thermoforma incubator
  • Nuaire laminar flow hood
  • Olympus IX-71 inverted microscope with phase contrast
  • DIC, and fluorescence
  • Optronics Microfire color digital camera for microscopy (1600x1200x10fps)
  • Corbett Research RotorGene Sequence Detection System for qPCR, 2 vibration isolation tables
  • mini- and micro-centrifuges
  • Bio-Tek multi-mode plate reader (Synergy HT) capable of absorbance, fluorescence, and luminescence detection
  • shaking water bath
  • a custom apparatus for viscoelastic mechanical characterization of vascularized collagen gels
  • refrigerator/freezer and electronic balance

Wet Lab 1 houses four PC computers (2 Athlon-based, 2 Pentium IV) and has desk space for two people.
