ECLT has recently moved its laboratory at the new scientific campus seat in Mestre (Venice). The Laboratory has been realized with the support of the bank foundation “Fondazione di Venezia” and it is now at the disposal of students, researchers, professors of ECLT and Ca' Foscari University of Venice.
The “LivingTech Lab” is equipped with cutting-edge high-throughput screening equipment to allow the investigation of complex biological systems.
The initial equipment covers the following areas:
Molecular biology: PCR, multi-label imaging system, 1D and 2D-electrophoresis system.
Protein biochemistry: Low to middle scale expression and purification of recombinant proteins. Protein-protein and protein-DNA interaction. Enzyme characterization by polarised fluorescence, fast kinetic spectroscopy.
High-throughput screening: 4-channels liquid handling robot equipped with a broad range of devices for microplate-based (from 96 to 1536-wells) biological and biochemical assays (Absorbance, glow and flash chemio- luminescence, bottom- top fluorescence, time-resolved fluorescence, polarised fluorescence for enzyme screening).
Biological sample storage system: equipped with linear bar coding and sample tracking system.
Analytical chemistry: High-throughput HPLC and FPLC coupled with UV-Vis spectrometer and fluorimeter.
