Shel Lab Shaker/Incubators:
This is a refrigerated shaker/incubator co-developed by the Stevens Lab and equipment manufacturer.
These incubators increase the efficiency of baculovirus transfection/infection with optimized temperature and shaking speed.
They are essential for baculovirus transfection, small scale expression and titer assay.
Millipore Guava® easyCyte Flow Cytometers:
This is a critical piece of equipment validated in this lab for measuring G protein-coupled receptor (protein) expression on cell surface and whole cells.
The method is so robust that, in many cases, the data can be directly correlated with actual expression of the protein in insect and mammalian cells.
The Guava also gives important cell viability data while measuring expression.
As a cell culture center, we know how important it is to maintain low and steady temperatures! Our advanced, digitally monitored cold room allows us to keep media, reagents, and viruses in a very well-controlled and stable environment.
