The Department of Medical Biotechnology has High Tech equipment and facilities for research in one location.

Equipment includes

  • Real-time PCRs and PCR's;

  • Cell culture incubators;

  • Biosafety cabinets and laminar flow hoods


Other equipment

The Agilent 1100 Series HPLC System for chromatic separation of samples

  • With autosampler
  • High-pressure binary gradient for low dispersion and high precision
  • Low pressure gradient for high accuracy and reproducibility


The Atherton Cyber Chinchilla CEB 9612 Series Sterilizer

  • 'State of the art' Sterilizer to provide powerful sterilization of equipment; specifically designed for laboratory research.
  • It functions on both fluid and dry cycles for all laboratroy requirements. 


  • Bioreactors are a specialised device or system used to grow cells or tissues in the context of cell culture.
    These devices are being developed for use in tissue engineering or biochemical engineering.

Luminescent Image Analyzer LAS-400

  • High-sensitivity and high-resolution images obtained by the special image processing procedure for both in vitro and in vivo imaging.
  • A wide range of fluorescence detection by various light sources including red, green and blue infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV) and epi-illuminator light sources.
  • Near infra-red light allowing transmission through tissues.

VirTis Benchtop Manifold Freeze Dryer for the dehydration of samples at low temperature

  • Benefical for heat-sensitive samples; allows drying of freeze-drying (lyophilization) of samples without degradation of active ingredient; only the water is removed.
  • Samples are dried in oxygen-free environment.
  • Large samples can be dried in one batch.
