The center currently provides researchers with facilities for real-time PCR, flow cytometry, confocal and fluorescence microscopy, BSL-1 and BSL-2 cell culture, as well equipment and instrumentation for a variety of other techniques. Digital photo documentation stations are located within the center for obtaining high-quality fluorescence (including multifluorescence), phosphorimaging, chemiluminescence, and bioluminescence digital images. Various laboratory supplies, equipment, and bench space are available for carrying out common molecular techniques such as gel electrophoresis, immunoblotting, and ELISA; and (short-term) cold storage space is available at 2C, -15C, -80C, and liquid nitrogen. In addition to assisting with the training of undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty/staff on the instrumentation located in the center, the MBC also offers guidance in various molecular techniques , protocol development, and troubleshooting.
Thank you for your interest in the Molecular Biosciences Center. We appreciate any comments, questions, or suggestions and look forward to working with you.
