Molecular Laboratory

We opened The Alison Phelan Memorial Laboratory in October 2012. The lab now houses molecular equipment, e.g. Western blotting (Bio-Rad MinoPROTEAN, Pierce PowerBlotter), PCR (Bio-rad MyCycler) etc, a 2100 Agilent Bioanalyser providing sizing, quantitation and quality control of DNA, RNA, proteins and cells (used in DNA fingerprinting and RNA integrity), a Licor Odyssey CLx Infrared Imaging System (can quantitate two targets on same blot simultaneously) and a computer with SmartType Chromosome/karyotyping software.
