gas sorption analyzerAutomated Gas Sorption Analyzer

The automated gas sorption analyzer, located in Kirkbride Hall’s biomedical engineering laboratory, is a fully computerized and automated instrument, capable of measuring surface area and pore textural properties. It can also measure the adsorption capacity of any gas in a wide range of temperatures. It is useful in the research of nanoporous materials and their applications, including gas separation and storage, electrode materials, catalysis, and other biomedical applications.

fluorescence microscopeInverted Fluorescence Microscope

Engineering’s inverted fluorescence microscope is a critical tool for cutting-edge research in biomedical engineering, biology, and medical and pharmaceutical sciences. Its fluorescent imaging component makes our microscope ideal for studying the interaction of fluorescence protein molecules in living cells and tissues. This microscope is available for use by engineering students interested in live cell imaging involved in various biomedical applications.
