Equipment:


The team has access to a large range of equipment within the School of Chemistry but also has a range of team-specific instrumentation all of which are open to collaborative projects.

With the increasing work on biosensors and cancer therapy it was decided that a microbiology lab would also be advantageous within the team, hence we now run chemistry’s first designated microbiology lab!. The team also runs two category 2 microbiology labs.Gwenin - Applied Research in Chemistry and Public Health (ARCH)

Thanks to A4B funding we now have a fully functioning cell culture facility.

Finances were also raised for an evanescent field sensors (EVAsensor) pictured below along with a picture of the eight well chips used for the measurements.

We raised the finances for the UK first NanoArrayer; this equipment allows the deposition of nano-sized droplets of liquids to be deposited onto a substrate. If you would like further information on this technique and are interested in a demonstration please contact Dr. Gwenin. email: c.d.gwenin@bangor.ac.uk

Surface characterisation techniques are very useful for visualising surface structures and, in some cases, determining crystal orientation. Atomic force microscopy is available within the team for this type of characterisation.

In order to prepare our TB sensor for the market, we now have a BioDot printer to allow for mass production.

The department houses a wide variety of instrumentation, some of which is detailed below. For a full list of the department’s capabilities, please contact the head technician for details.

  • Gas Chromatography (GC) and Gas Chromatography / Mass spectrometry (GCMS)
  • High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and Liquid Chromatography / Mass spectrometry (LCMS)
  • Gel permeation chromatography (GPC)
  • Mass spectrometry – Direct Insertion EI and Direct Infusion ESI techniques
  • Ion Chromatography (IC)
  • Flash chromatography (Preparative)
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy (NMR)
  • Ultraviolet / visible spectroscopy (UV/Vis)
  • Infra-Red spectroscopy (IR)
  • Atomic absorption spectroscopy (AA)
  • X-Ray diffraction (XRD)
  • Thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA/DSC)

We are capable of much more than is detailed above. If you have a specific application or inquiry, do not hesitate to contact us.
