PerkinElmer UV-Visible Spectometer

PerkinElmer UV-Visible Spectometer

The Lambda is a double-beam UV-Visible spectrometer that measures light absorption from the visible to the ultraviolet region (1100 nm to 200 nm, 1.1 eV to 6.2 eV). A sample is usually made up to a known concentration in a non-absorbing solvent (such as water) and loaded into a quartz cuvette (available from the lab). Liquids, solutions and transparent solids can be measured. Note that we are not able to measure reflectance on this instrument.

Phillips CM200

Phillips CM200

The Philips CM200 field emission transmission electron microscope allows very high resolution images to be obtained from thin (electron transparent) materials. In a field emission gun a very strong electric field is used to extract electrons from a metal filament. This results in an electron beam which is very bright. Ultimately, this microscope allows individual atoms to be imaged. The CM200 TEM allows structural, crystallographic and elemental studies of materials.

TA Instruments NanoDSC

This capillary Differential Scanning Calorimeter can be used for investigating the stability of proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and other macromolecules. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is the only method that directly measures the stability of macromolecules in solution. The information obtained provides valuable insights into the factors (e.g. hydrophobic interactions, hydrogen bonding, conformational entropy and physical environment) that stabilize these biomolecules alone or as complexes, such as protein-ligand or micellar complexes.
