The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Laboratory is adjacent to the Cardiorespiratory/Metabolic
Laboratory and provides investigators with the tools necessary for in-depth study
of animal and human samples (e.g., blood, urine, tissue) at the biochemical and molecular
level. Standard equipment for processing, storing, and analyzing samples is available
in this facility.
Specifically, a variety of freezers, incubators, water baths, shakers, centrifuges,
pipettes, balances, an autoclave, a microtome/cryostat, and microscopes are available.
