Scientific tools

Many of our projects rely on customized analytical interfaces developed by our team members. However, this instrumentation often incorporates commercial detection systems to secure acquiring high-quality data. The laboratory has three mass spectrometers. The quadrupole time-of-flight MS (Shimadzu), the triple quadrupole MS (Shimadzu), and the GC-MS system (with automated SPME and headspace sampling; Thermo) are utilized in several projects. The motorized fluorescence microscope (Zeiss), the inverted fluorescence microscope (Olympus), and spectrofluorometer are also available to the laboratory members.

Besides, the Laboratory for Biochemical Analysis has several daily-use pieces of equipment, including: 2D UV imaging detectors (ActiPix D100 and D200), HPLC, imaging tools (cameras, nanosecond-range flash lamp), thermostated shakers, mini-thermoshaker, rotary evaporator (IKA), power supplies (LV & HV), function generator, oscilloscope, electronic modules (digital and analog), -80C freezer, laminar hood, centrifuges, peristaltic pumps, analytical balance, vortexes, rocker, digital manometer, optical densitometer, visible-light/UVA-&-UVB meters, anemometer, hot plates, breadboards, and XYZ stages.
