Facilities

  • Automated Flash Chromatography Brand: BIOTAGE,
    Model: Isolera
    Automated Flash Chromatography The model Isolera uses BIOTAGE’s Accelerated Chromatographic Isolation system for material purification. Isolera is an automated flash system designed to purify synthesis reaction mixtures, natural product extracts, and other organic compound mixtures from milligram to multi-gram quantities.
  • Thermogravimetry and Differential Scanning Calorimetry Brand: NETZSCH,
    Model: STA 449 F3 Jupiter
    Thermogravimetry and Differential Scanning Calorimetry The simultaneous thermal analyzer STA 449 F3 Jupiter from NETZSCH allows the measurement of mass changes and thermal effects between -150°C and 2400°C. The flexibility resulting from the various sensors, the variety of sample crucibles and the wide TGA-measuring range make the system applicable for analysis of a vast range of materials. Easily interchangeable sample holders allow optimal system adaption to diverse application areas (TGA, TGA-DTA and TGA-DSC measurements).
  • Cold Trap Freeze Dryer Brand: LABCONCO,
    Model: CentriVap
    Cold Trap Freeze Dryer The CentriVap Cold Trap freeze dryer from LABCONCO, collects evaporated liquid from a CentriVap Concentrator, protecting an accessory vacuum pump and the laboratory environment from the corrosive effects of vapors and fumes emitted from samples. The Trap may also be used for freeze drying and desiccation.
  • Potentiostat/Galvanostat Brand: Autolab,
    Model: PGSTAT302N
    Potentiostat/Galvanostat This high end, high current potentiostat/galvanostat, with a compliance voltage of 30 V and a bandwidth of 1 MHz is specially designed for electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
  • Rotary Evaporator Brand: Heidolph,
    Model: Hei-VAP-Precision
    Rotary Evaporator The Hei-VAP Precision rotary evaporator provides a wide range of parameters for ensuring reproducible applications and fully automated processes including integrated vacuum control. Solutions with different boiling points can be identified and distilled.
  • Centrifuge Brand: Eppendorf,
    Model: 5810R
    Centrifuge Eppendorf Centrifuge 5810 R is a refrigerated 3 liter centrifuge for both tubes and plates with a compact footprint.
  • Microwave Synthesizer Brand: Biotage,
