The Laboratory for Synthetic-Biologic Interactions (LSBI) is a research facility housed in the Department of Chemistry. The LSBI is designed to be a multi-user laboratory supporting major research initiatives within the Chemistry Department, the university and extending to the broader academic and industrial scientific communities. Five instruments are currently available on a fee-for-use basis, and others may be made available on case-by-case considerations. Over time, we will be bringing additional instrumentation online for training and usage by the campus research facility. As this occurs, rates and instruments will become available through this site, including the FOM online instrument booking software.

The following instruments are currently available on a fee-for-use basis:

Mettler Toledo TT-DMA

Shimadzu IR Prestige Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared (ATR-FTIR) Spectrometer

Biolin q-Sense QCM-D

DelsaNano C DLS

Full Spectral Confocal Microscope

To obtain an account and instrument booking privileges, please see the LSBI policy page. Once an account has been established, information on training will be provided by the LSBI administration team, or can be found on the individual instrument pages.
