The state-of-the-art facilities, known as the core facilities in the Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB), act as the catalyst for the research in the bio-complex. IBB serves as the hub of several core facilities which are available to IBB affiliated labs.
In order to reserve core facilities equipment you must register to use the iLab Solutions system.
Once you are registered, the system will enable you to place service request, provide required approvals, monitor progress and view equipment availability. To register, please click here. If you experience difficulties, please contact us.
Mass spectrometry (MS) is an analytical technique for the determination of the elemental composition of a sample or molecule. It is also used for elucidating the chemical structures of molecules, such as peptides and other chemical compounds. The MS principle consists of ionizing chemical Read More>>
The Biomechanics Core Facility conducts mechanical analysis and testing of biological and engineered materials. Static and dynamic mechanical characterization is performed in this facility through various modes of testing (compressive, tensile, torsional, flexural, fatigue, etc). Read More>>
Biomolecules form the basis of life. Biomolecular Analysis involves the characterization of polymeric biomolecules such as DNA, RNA, protein, carbohydrates and lipids as well as single biomolecules. Some of the techniques that are available include absorbance spectroscopy, fluorimetry, Read More>>
The cell is the basic unit of the organism. Cellular Analysis involves the characterization of cell populations using fluid based transport systems. In the Coulter Multisizer, impedance is used to size and count cells as well as particles as they pass the through the orifice of an aperture. Flow Read More>>
The BioMark Genetic Analysis Platform is a fully integrated system enabling analysis of gene expression, genotyping, mutant detection, and absolute quantization of nucleic-acid sequences utilizing Dynamic Array Integrated Fluidic Chip (IFC) technology which provides high-throughput real-time Read More>>
Histology allows the visualization, identification and the qualitative and quantitative analysis of cellular and tissue morphology. One of its primary mission is to serve as a training platform for students. Students are trained by a certified histologist to perform their own work. The Read More>>
