Equipment used in the Plant Genomics & Genetics Lab

Solar Powered Ambient Weather Station

Ambient Weather WS-2902C Wi-Fi OSPREY

This solar powered weather monitor measures wind speed, wind direction, rainfall, outdoor temperature and humidity, solar radiation and UV. The console is also equipped to calculate barometric pressure, dew point, wind chill and heat index. Its Wi-Fi capabilites enable the transmission of data wirelessly to the internet.



Steam sterilizers (Autoclaves) are an essential part of the decontamination and sterilization processes performed in the lab. 

Air Drying Oven

Ai 250°C Forced Air Drying Oven

This oven is great for drying and sterilization. It is safe to use in the lab since it comes with built-in temperature calibration and and a sensor that automatically cuts power if overheating is detected.

Centrifuge 5810R

Eppendorf Centrifuge 5810 R

This equipment is used for centrifugation requiring medium to high-speeds of up to 20,913 x g (14,000 rpm). It operates quietly and fits comfortably into the lab space.

EpMotion M5073

Eppendorf epMotion M5073

The M5073 automated pipetting systems is flexible for a wide range of Liquid Handling tasks. It is ideal for saving hands-on-time and improving the reproducibility of results. This machine's pipetting procedure is more precise, reproducible and fully standardized, making the workplace safer and more ergonomic.

Eppendorf Mastercycler

Eppendorf Mastercycler Nexus

The Mastercycler enables PCR runs with a range of standard vessel types. Two eco cyclers can be connected for higher throughput, providing up to six independently operating blocks. It even has email notification functionality.

FLUOstar Omega

FLUOstar Omega Multimode Microplate Reader

The FLUOstar Omega is a versatile multi-mode microplate reader. It utilizes an untra-fast UV/Vis spectrometer or filters for absorbance as well as highly sensitive filters for other detection modes.
