Photos of the laboratory
The department was established in 1970. The department developes methods and instrumentation for
Studies of the mechanisms of cell metabolism by luminescence methods;
Spectral analysis of biochemical reactions in UV, visible and IR spectral regions;
Monitoring separation of various compounds in liquid chromatography, gel-electrophoresis, blotting and so on;
Monitoring immune-enzyme assay growth of microbial cultures in standard plates by photometric methods;
Automatic image analysis of microobjects and microstructures.
The department developed more than 20 types of instruments and many of them were serially manufactured for scientific labs of Russian Academy of Sciences and medical diagnostic labs. Some of the instruments were awarded by medals of various exhibitions: scanning microscope CM-1 (bronze medal of All-Union Exhibition of National Economy Progress), microspectrofluorimeter MSF-2 (gold medal of the Leipzig Fair).
