Core Facilities

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has the instrumentation necessary for state-of-the-art biochemical research, including systems for chromatography (including HPLC, FPLC), radionuclide counting, centrifugation, spectroscopy, tissue culture, and capillary electrophoresis.

Dedicated labs exist on campus for flow cytometry, cell sorting, protein sequencing, oligonucleotide synthesis, nuclear magnetic resonance-mass spectrometry, and transmission and scanning electronic spectrometry.

In addition, core facilities are available for bacteria and animal cell culture, oligonucleotide synthesis, monoclonal antibody production and confocal laser scanning microscopy.

The department has excellent computing facilities for graphics, computation, and word processing.

The Leon S. McGoogan Health Sciences Library is located on the UNMC campus in Wittson Hall and has been designated a National Research Library.

There are also numerous specialized research resources and core facilities available across campus.
