Research @ SGH


Other equipment available in Department of Clinical Translational Research at the 9th floor of Discovery Tower, The Academia facilitates routine works for molecular and cellular biology, as well as histology. Centrifuge room houses high speed and ultra-speed centrifuge, as well as the vacuum concentrator. Microtome and cryostat are available for preparing histology sections. Plate readers and single tube luminometer facilitate the readout of biochemical and cell-based assays involving bioluminescence, fluorescence and absorbance. Furthermore, the X-ray irradiator located at the basement of The Academia is available for cell and small animal irradiation.
