Nanotechnology Core

Welcome to the Nanotechnology Core!

The Nanotechnology Core facility in the Department of Anatomy and Physiology in the KSU College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is a multiuser facility serving CVM, KSU campus, and research and commercial institutes outside campus. A well-equipped tissue culture facility can provide service for multiple investigators. A dedicated microscopic imaging room if available and includes bright field, dark field, and fluorescence microscopy. The core has two plate readers capable of absorbance, fluorescence, and luminescence based assays. The range of molecular biological instrumentation includes a QuantStudio 7 Flex, a Luminex 200, and a Chirascan CD spectrophotometer, allowing the core lab to be used for RT-PCR, ELISA, chemokine and cytokine assays, and thermodynamic and 3D structural characterization of proteins. State-of-the-art nanoparticle characterization equipment, such as Zetasizer, Nanosight, and a CPS high resolution disk centrifuge are available for measuring size and concentration of nanoparticles in suspension. A fully equipped surgical suite for small animals (up to 100 lb.) and an IVIS bio-imaging system facilitate in vivo experiments.
