ABI Step One Plus RT PCR

This 96 well system has four color capability. Perform standard quantitative PCR in less than 2 hours and fast quantitative PCR in 40 minutes. SYBR/FAM/TAMRA capable. Intuitive and flexible software guides new users through their real time PCR experiments. Medium throughput instrument.

Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer

The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer offers advantages of sensitivity and accuracy for performing RNA separation, detection and quantitation, coupled with a rapid, automated system

Autotechnicon Tissue Processor

Autotechnicons make sample processing quick and painless. The various solutions used for processing tissue are placed into ten separate nylon beakers. These beakers are placed on the circular deck of the instrument. There are also two paraffin baths that are mounted on the deck. Each paraffin bath contains an internal heater that is thermostatically controlled.

Cellometer Auto T4

Cellometer Auto is a simple to use, automated cell counter designed to improve accuracy, repeatability, and throughput compared to manual cell counting with a hemacytometer. Cellometer is loaded with features, yet is incredibly simple to use and can count hundreds of different cell types and can measure cells using dye exclusion (Trypan Blue).

Leica Frigocut 2800n Cryostat

The Leica Frigocut 2800n cryostat is designed primarily for the demanding needs of cryosectioning systems in the field of biomedical, neuro-anatomical and pharmaceutical research. Particularly when working with delicate specimens – for example brain samples in neuroscience – the precise specimen orientation and the specimen feed system via step motor guarantees reproducible sections of maximum quality.

Leica Histo-Embedder

The Leica Histo-Embedder combines routine paraffin embedding and is co-localized with the autotechnicon tissue processor. An all-in-one, fully programmable compact paraffin tissue embedding center with sophisticated state of the art technology that increases tissue embedding productivity, throughput, and quality.

Leica RM2155 and RM2255 Microtomes (3)

The Leica RM2255 rotary microtome, designed for fully motorized sectioning of both paraffin- and resin-embedded specimens, offers a broad application spectrum in routine and research laboratories in histology as well as in industrial materials and quality control. Its two-in-one design concept, which allows motorized as well as manual sectioning, provides reproducible quality sections.

NanoDrop ND 1000 Spectrophotometer

The Thermo Scientific NanoDropTM 1000 Spectrophotometer enables highly accurate UV/Vis analyses of 1 ul samples with remarkable reproducibility. The patented sample retention system eliminates the need for cuvettes and capillaries which decreases the measurement cycle time. In addition, the high absorbance capability eliminates the need for most dilutions. You’ll find yourself making fewer dilutions and taking more readings than ever before, essentially becoming a more quantitative laboratory.

SpectraMax Plus Spectrophotometer

The new SpectraMax® Plus384 is the only spectrophotometer with a built-in cuvette port and microplate drawer. Now you can run both standard spectrophotometer and microplate reader applications on the same instrument. Use any standard cuvette, 12 x 75 mm test tube, 96-well microplate. Instrument includes kinetic standard curve and temperature control. Perfect for reading absorbance in 96-well plates. Software for analysis of samples included.
