|BioClave Benchtop Autoclave||
BioClave 16 benchtop steam sterilizer has a chamber measuring 9" diameter x 13ó" deep. Steam sterilization of research tools and consumables occurs in a stainless steel sterilization chamber with a electrical safety interlock that prevents the door from being opened until the pressure has reached zero PSI. Three trays are included, along with a conventional tray removal tool. With large digital displays and fully automatic operation, all segments of the sterilization cycle (fill, sterilize, exhaust and dry) commence and run to completion by simply pressing the start button. The 16 liter BioClave offers three cycle options (standard programs), which are preset for the sterilization of liquids, wrapped instruments or unwrapped instruments/plasticware. A fourth option "Dry Only" is also available for additional drying time to be added to the end of a cycle. For special applications, requiring variations in cycle parameters, all settings on the BioClave 16 are fully adjustable.

|Horiba FluoroLog Spectrophotometer||
The Fluorolog-3-22 (JY Horiba Inc.) is a spectrofluorometer consisting of a 450 W xenon arc lamp, a double excitation monochromator, a sample compartment with a cuvette holder, a double emission monochromator, and a photomultiplier tube (PMT). A fiber-optic probe can be coupled to the sample compartment such that spectroscopic measurements can be made remotely. Although the spectrofluorometer has been designed for fluorescence spectroscopy, fluorescence (as either an excitation or emission spectrum) as well as reflectance spectra (in synchronous scan mode) can be measured. The adjustable variables are excitation wavelength(s) and emission wavelength(s), excitation and emission slit widths, sampling increment, integration time, and collection geometry (front face versus right angle collection).
|Imaris Work Stations||
Imaris is a scientific software program designed by Bitplane that allows for visualization, analysis, and interpretation of microscopy data. Imaris can be used to analyze both large (50 GB or more) 3D and 4D multi-channel images.
The program is designed for the life sciences and can decrease the amount of time spent interpreting and optimizing data. Large data sets can be segmented to identify and visualize individual ojects, and Imaris MeasurementPro can be used to obtain statistical information.

|Triax 320 Spectrograph||
The system consists of a 450 W xenon lamp (FL-1039, J.Y. Horiba) as the broad band light source, a scanning double excitation monochromator (Gemini 180, J.Y. Horiba) to obtain a series of monochromatic excitation light, a bifurcated fiber-optic probe (multimode fibers) for light delivery, a filter wheel, an imaging spectrograph (Triax 320, J.Y. Horiba) and a CCD camera (CCD3000, J.Y. Horiba) for detection. With this system, point measurement of fluorescence and diffuse reflectance can be performed on the surface of tissues.
