Baculovirus expression facility

This facility is used for expression of hard to express mammalian proteins.

Benchtop Refrigerated Centrifuge

▶ Centrifuge 5810 R, with its renowned quality and reliability, offers the most cost-effective solution for medium to high-throughput applications requiring speeds of up to 20,913 x g (14,000 rpm). This benchtop centrifuge has been designed to fit into every lab and make routine work more comfortable thanks to its quiet operation, soft-touch lid closure and low access height for easy loading and unloading. Experience true versatility with a broad selection of rotors and adapters that facilitate mixed loading of tubes, bottles and plates. A new generation of rotors increases the capacity of Centrifuge 5810 R to a maximum of 4 x 750 mL (or 28 x 50 mL / 56 x 15 mL). The swing-bucket rotor and adapters accommodate tubes and bottles from 0.2 mL to 750 mL, and the fixed-angle rotor 0.2 mL to 85 mL tubes. The plate rotor is ready for you to carry out centrifugation of all types of multiwell plates, such as PCR, cell culture, or deep-well plates.

Benchtop Centrifuge

▶ Laboratory Centrifuges model R-8C is suitable for routine sample analysis in Institutional laboratories. With a wide choice of rotor heads and adaptors, this unit are truly versatile.
▶ Digital Speed Indicator, Stepless speed regulator, 0-99 minutes digital countdown timer, Imbalance detector with cut off, Safety Lid interlock to prevent cover opening during centrifugation, Max. Speed- 5250 rpm, Max. RCF – 300 g, Max. Capacity – 300 ml

Microbiological Safety Cabinets

▶ These highly sophisticated Microbiological Safety Cabinets Class II Type A2, provide the highest safety for the operator and the environment for the manipulation of Risk Groups 1 to 3 of pathogens (WHO Classification of Infective Microorganisms by Risk Group, 2004)
▶ Work chamber dimensions (lxdxh):879x480x650 mm, H14 class High Efficiency Particulate Air filters guaranteed with 99.999% efficiency on 0.3 micron particles

Inverted Biological Microscope

▶ RTC-7 Series is equipped with high-performance optics, ergonomic design, and LED illumination, it is ideal for cell culture, micromanipulation, documentation of immunostained specimens, and routine live cell examinations. Microscope features high-quality Phase contrast, excellent modulation contrast and brilliant fluorescence. Die Cast body is robust, stable , plenty of space to work with tools, long working distances/swing out condenser to accommodate large culture flasks and a stable cool illumination make work at the microscope easy and convenient.
