Tissue culture rooms

tissuecultureThe Sainsbury Lab has four purpose-built tissue culture rooms and six stand-alone cabinets. Fitted out by Associated Laboratory supplies, the four purpose-built rooms provide a suitable environment for tissue culture growth, with horizontal side wall air flow distributed across the six shelves, temperature ranges of between 18-28˚C and lights providing a maximum of 200µMoles. Humidity control is not provided within these rooms

In addition to these four rooms, there are six higher spec stand-alone cabinets provided by the Laboratory for groups to use, should they have more specific needs. The five Percival ‘Select Chambers’ and one Conviron A1000 Adaptis (on trial thanks to Conviron) are part of a continuing development of the SLCU tissue culture facilities.
