Microbial Fermentation Laboratory

The microbial fermentation laboratory offers equipment to perform cell culture investigations. In addition to the major instrumentation listed above, the Laboratory houses other items needed for microbial culture experiments including a laminar flow hood, autoclave, incubator shaker, research grade microscope, balance, pipettors, plain shakers and glassware. We also have access to a Waters Alliance HPLC system for off-line measurement of other extracellular species concentrations and a FACSAria flow cytometer and cell sorter for cell population studies.
