The bioassemblies capability provides users with the tools for manipulating biomolecules and performing microbial electrochemistry studies.
Microbial Electrochemistry Suite
The bioelectrochemical suite contains an Agilent HPLC system for spent media analysis, two Bio-Logic VSP300 6-channels potentiostats, a Bio-Logic VSP3000 16-channel potentiostat, and a CH Instruments Model 1000B 8-channel potentiostat. This instrumentation is geared for electrochemical analysis (cyclic voltammetry, controlled potential coulometry, differential pulse voltammetry) of intact microbes and individual proteins.
Additional Biomolecule Manipulation Tools
The Facility is equipped with a variety of tools to aid in work with biomolecules, microbes, molecular biology techniques and cell culture. These tools include: an anaerobic chamber, a Beckman ultracentrifuge and other regular centrifuges, 4 biosafety cabinets, limited access to flow cytometer core facility, an AKTA FPLC, microbial and tissue culture incubators, refrigerators and freezers, and gel electrophoresis equipment.
