CHTP Lab space arrangement and instrumentation

The CHTP lab space has been arranged to be user intuitive.

Zone 1 - The first zone (designated the wet work bench) is equipped with fume hoods and extractor arms for the safe preparation of reagents (balances, stirrer/heater, pH meter, water system with dispenser, ice machine) and samples (fixation for EM or sample preparation for MALDI). Storage of samples available at 4°C and -20°C.

Zone 2 - The second zone is used for processing the samples for imaging purposes that do not require the protection of fume hoods or fume extractors e.g. loading wet samples and mounting EM samples.

Zone 3 - The third zone is the lab dry zone where processed samples can be maintained in a dry state at room temperature (desiccators) and 37°C and 65°C (oven storage).
