Equipment

This is a selected list of our equipment and instruments for our research activities.


Lyophilizer:
We use this FreeZone
Freeze Dry System from Labconco for preparation of our molecular therapeutics.








Attune flow cytometer:

This Invitrogen Attune NxT Flow Cytometer is one of our main instruments to characterize differentiation and activation of immune cells. This machine is equipped with 2 lasers (488 and 647 nm) and 7 color channels for detection.







EVOS FL Auto with on-stage incubator:

This is our fluorescent microscope system with which we mainly examine cells, microparticles, as well as cells-biomaterials interactions. DAPI, FITC, Texas-Red, and bright field can be visualized in separate channels.






HAAKE iQ Rheometer:

We measure and analyze the viscoelastic properties of a wide range of polymer solutions and hydrogels for development of biomimetic hydrogels or electrohydrodynamic jetting solutions.










NanoDrop OneC Microvolume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer:

We use this instrument to quantify and qualify DNA, RNA, and protein samples  in seconds with only 1-2 µL sample volumes. It is equipped with an additional cuvette position, which is useful for monitoring ODs of bacterial growth.
