Facilities in the Cellular Microsystems and Biosensors Laboratory feature:

  • Microfabrication (clean room). The lab is fully equipped for photolithography and soft lithography processes.
  • Microscopy and microfluidics stations. High-end fluorescence microscopy, an incubated fluorescence microscope and several simpler bright field microscopes are available for characterization of cells and devices.
  • Electrochemistry. An eight-channel potentiostat (Gamry) and two CHI potentiostats are available for electrochemistry and biosensor-related experiments.
  • Tissue culture. The lab is fully equipped with several tissue culture hoods, incubators and centrifuges.
  • Molecular biology. Equipment is available for quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and Western blotting.
