 Mitochondrial function testing

The Seahorse Extracellular Flux Analyzer can simultaneously measure mitochondrial oxygen consumption and extracellular acidification rates in live cells. This is real-time measurement which helps to assess the effect of various drugs on the mitochondrial function.


Sputum induction facilities


Separate sputum induction room with exhaust hood to reduce particulate contamination and technician safety.

Ultrasonic nebulizer for sputum induction.


Protein function/expression characterization



Instruments to perform western blotting assays for measuring the expression of specific proteins in the samples


Spectrophotometer to measure the change in UV absorbance as a result of enzyme activity or for calorimetric assays.






Liquid nitrogen tank for snap freezing and cryopreservation



Deep freezers
