Lab Tour


Our lab has the facilities required to carry out the high-throughput techniques for the massive screening of mutated genes. These include one colony picker multistation (QPiX), one robotic 96-liquid handling platform for 24 -microplate-stations (EVO100), two robotized 96-liquid handlers, one robotic pipetting station, two 96-384 monochromator/spectrofluoremeter microplate readers, one monochromator-nanodrop microplate reader and humidity shakers. The laboratory is fully equipped with the necessary infrastructure for biochemical, protein and DNA characterization, including gradient thermocyclers, two ÄKTA systems for protein purification, two HPLCs (with diode-array, light-scattering, refraction index detector and evaporative light-scattering detectors), a gas chromatography system with one mass spectrometry and FID detectors (GC-MS-FID), a 5L-fermenter, tangential ultrafiltration systems for culture broth/protein concentration, refrigerated centrifuges, laboratory hoods and temperature controlled rooms.
