Bio/Research

Recently the research infrastructure of the Department of Biomedical Sciences underwent extensive renovations to create, in addition to several existing individual laboratories dedicated to functional morphology, toxicology and ruminant physiology, the Institute for Animal-Human Links in Health Science Research. The total budget for this project was $27.5 million, consisting of contributions from Canadian Foundation for Innovation, Ontario Innovation Trust, and the University of Guelph. This Institute comprises two main multi-user laboratory complexes: Reproductive Health and Biotechnology (RHB), and Enhanced Health Assessment/Application of Molecular Markers (EHAL).

These renovations generated state of the art multi-disciplinary laboratories, consolidated on two floors of the OVC building. Common equipment and facilities include: purified reagent grade water systems (MilliQ and RO), autoclave suites, histological preparation and production facilities, research cold rooms, devoted RNA isolation facilities, facilities for solution and media preparation, tissue culture suites suitable for handling and storage of animal and human cell lines, in vitro fertilization and embryo culture suites and dedicated micromanipulation workstations. Equipment includes: several PCR machines, including gradient PCR, electrophoresis equipment for agarose and protein gels, spectrophotometers and visible plate/ELISA reader, refrigerators, and freezers (standard and ultracold) Real-Time RT-PCR machines, digital photo-documentation equipment for agarose and similar gels (three, including one suitable for in vivo bioluminescence), inverted phase contrast and compound light/fluorescent microscopes equipped with digital cameras (six), confocal microscopes (one standard scanning laser confocal microscope; one spinning disc confocal microscope, suitable for FRET/FLIM analysis), Typhoonâ„¢ fluorescent scanner, spot picker and auto-digester (for 2-D protein gels), microarray scanner, fluorescent plate reader suitable for luciferase assays, facilities for bacterial culture, and numerous centrifuges.
