To Sell

  • BioFlo II Fermentor
    • Needs some TLC!
  • Two functioning autoclaves (several hundred $$ ea)
    • Stacked in the back corner near BAAM
    • 6-inch Pelton and Crane small autoclave
    • Two Pelton and Crane omniclaves (one of these two is better to keep - figure out which one / swap parts)
  • Ancient rotary shaker from the 70s
  • -20C freezer
  • Rotocycler
  • Old HPLC system (Waters 650)
  • Small fridge in the BSL2 that keeps freezing stuff (there's no temp control)
  • Hitachi U2000 UV/Vis spectrophotometer (Jacob?)
  • Beckman-Coulter DU640 UV/Vis spectrophotometer (Matt?)
  • PCR - which one?
  • UV cryochamber

Talk to Patrik, Kathy, and Matt before selling anything! Also email cclmembers@googlegroups.com and cultlabsboard@googlegroups.com to make sure no one has any objections.

Functioning

  • Two biosafety cabinets (Type A2)
  • Multiple incubators, including a large 37C, a 2-compartment CO2 incubator (currently not plugged in), and a small desktop incubator.
  • Large -20 freezer (currently not plugged in)
  • 2-compartment -40C freezer
  • -80 freezer (currently not plugged in - waiting for 240V)
  • Multiple small fridges (want to get a large deli fridge)
  • Multiple PCR thermocyclers
  • Vis spectrophotometer
  • OD600 spec
  • Multiple centrifuges
  • Electroporator (BTX Electro Square Porator T820)

Actively Under Construction/Repair

  • Spectrophotometer Beckman DU-640.
    May be too much hassle to repair. Could just buy a second one for a few $hundred, and use the old one for spare parts.
  • HPLC system being put together (needs someone to adopt!)

Needs testing

  • Bioreactor controllers

Broken

Wanted

  • Chemical hood (not a biosafety cabinet - we have two of those!)
  • Glass front deli fridge
  • Nanodrop

See our Wishlist for a more complete list.

BSL-2 room!

We have a room set aside to turn into a BSL-2 room. Will contain our smaller biosafety cabinet, and small-size versions of all the essential equipment: fridge, freezer, incubator, PCR, centrifuge, etc. Currently just waiting for lab sink to be installed.
