Cell Biology Teaching & Research Lab

 The Cell Biology Facility is used for teaching and research by undergraduates, graduate students and faculty. The facility houses equipment for fluorescence microscopy, video imaging, molecular biology, and cell culture. The facility is used by students in the Cell Biology Course during laboratory instruction hours, but at other times the equipment is available for research projects.

Equipment in the Cell Biology Facility includes:

  • Nikon Diaphot inverted fluorescence microscopes with single, dual and triple fluorescence filter sets
  • Zeiss Axiovert 10 inverted microscope
  • Optronics low-light color cameras and B&W camera
  • Sony SVHS video tape recorders
  • High resolution color monitors
  • Computers with frame grabbers for video and tape with Image-Pro image analysis packages
  • Panasonic time lapse video recorder
  • Hitachi video printer (small format),
  • Narishige manipulators and microinjection equipment
  • Electrophoresis apparatus
  • Spectrophotometers
  • Centrifuges

The Cell Biology Teaching and Research Facility contains state-of-the-art teaching and research equipment purchased with funds provided by the National Science Foundation, Division of Undergraduate Education (Instrumentation and Laboratory Development grant # DUE 9551341).

Additional support came from matching and capital investment from the State of Ohio, the Kent State University College of Arts and Sciences, the Kent State University Teaching Council, and the Department of Biological Sciences. Support also came from the two leading companies for microscope optical filters and flourescent probes (Omega Optical and Molecular Probes).
