Centre for Free Radical Research Resources

The Centre for Free Radical Research is well equipped to carry out basic and applied biomedical research. We have standard laboratory materials and equipment as well as the specialist equipment below.

Mass spectrometry

Mass spectrometry in the Centre for Free Radical ResearchThe Centre for Free Radical Research uses a Thermo LTQ Velos Pro Ion-Trap (purchased with support from Gravida) for qualitative analysis of proteins and peptides, and an Applied Biosystems 4000QTRAP for quantitative analysis of small molecules and peptides. Both machines use Dionex 3000 UHPLC systems.

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)

High performance liquid chromatography in the Centre for Free Radical ResearchWe have three Waters HPLC pumps with autosamplers and photo diode array (PDA), electro chemical detection (ECD) and fluorescence detection.

Microscopes

Microscopes in the Centre for Free Radical ResearchThe Centre has an Olympus IX81 live cell imaging microscope (purchased with the support of Gravida) and a Zeiss Axio Imager fluorescence microscope.

Imaging

Chemidoc biomolecular imager in the Centre for Free Radical ResearchThere are two Chemidoc biomolecular imagers and a Typhoon FLA 9500 biomolecular imager at the Centre for Free Radical Research.

 Cell culture

Hypoxia station in the  Centre for Free Radical ResearchThe Centre has incubators, laminar flow hoods and a Don Whitley H35 hypoxia station for hypoxic and anoxic conditions within a controlled and sustained workstation environment.

Cell metabolism

Seahorse Bioscience XF24 in use in the Centre for Free Radical ResearchWe have a Seahorse Bioscience XF24 extracellular flux analyser for assessing mitochondrial function.

Spectroscopy

The Centre for Free Radical Research has an Agilent stopped-flow spectrophotometer, Hitachi U-3900 temperature controlled spectrophotometer, Implen Nanophotometer, Nanodrop spectrophotometer, and three ELISA plate readers (Varioskan flash, Polstar galaxy and Spectramax 190).
