Director: Dr. Marie van der Merwe
The BMBL is approximately 1500 square feet and is well equipped, including a cell and tissue culture room, a microscopy room, and a large area with equipment to explore the cellular and biochemical responses of both human and animal samples (e.g., blood, urine, and tissue). Standard equipment for processing, storing and analyzing samples are available including: refrigerators, freezers, incubators, water baths, shakers, centrifuges, pipettes, balances and a pH meter. Additionally, equipment for gel electrophoresis, western blotting and RT-PCR are available.
