The Department has a Revco Model ULT390-3-A30 ultracold freezer that can be used to prepare and store tissue samples for DNA isolation. A thermocycler is available for PCR. Other molecular laboratory equipment includes centrifuges (ranging from clinical to ultra), a laminar flow hood, electrophoresis equipment, and equipment for fluorescent microscopy. The Department also has a tissue culture laboratory. For photomicrography, the Department has a DVC Model 1310C digital camera which can be mounted to either a compound (Olympus BX-40) or dissecting (Olympus SZ-40) microscope.
