Biomineral synthesis laboratory

biomineral syn laboratory

Laboratory for the advanced characterization and analysis of novel, nano-scale biominerals for both commercial exploitation and remediation applications. Examples include the biological synthesis of chalcogenide semiconducting quantum dots and ferrite spinels such as biomagnetite (Fe3O4) and associated mineral structures. Facilities in this laboratory are complemented by those in the Geomicrobiology, Radionuclide Biogeochemistry and Molecular Ecology Labs.

Facilities include:
•    Coy anaerobic cabinet
•    Refrigerated high-capacity centrifuge and microfuge
•    5L Fermenter
•    Orbital incubators
•    UV/VIS spectrophotometer
•    Roller Mixers
•    Peristaltic pumps
