Biotechnology Lab


This state-of-the-art biosafety level 2 facility is home to a Bioreactor which cultivates cells to produce antibiotics, vaccines, and organic acids. In addition, this lab houses a Biochemical Analyser and Biosafety Cabinet, as well as Fluorescent Microscope to view cells and cell components, DNA, and protein molecules that have been stained with fluorescents.

The lab also houses an advanced Gel Documentation System for image capturing, thermal cycler for using real-time PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) to replicate DNA, High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) system for the analysis of protein molecules, and a solid state bioreactor to cultivate microorganisms on a packed bed.
