Members of the Biomolecular Discovery and Design Research Centre have access to the following world-class facilities:
APAF (Australian Proteome Analysis Facility) - Science and Engineering/CBMS
APAF has 20 years’ experience in providing proteomic services, and combined with leading edge infrastructure and expertise provides total solutions for all your proteomic research needs.
Macquarie University Synthetic Biology Lab - Science and Engineering/CBMS-Biology
The Synthetic Biology laboratory is the only Australian node for the global Yeast 2.0 project, and is customised for the design and synthesis of neo-chromosomes and a complete eukaryotic genome.
MUCAB (Macquarie University Centre for Analytical Biotechnology) - Science and Engineering/CBMS
The Centre manages substantial instrumentation resources appropriate for the contemporary study of biomolecules and natural products, and has led to Macquarie University being recognised nationally as a centre of excellence for biomolecular analysis.
Macquarie University Microscopy Unit - Science and Engineering/Biology
The Microscopy Unit contains a range of modern imaging equipment, as does the CNBP, such as the Atomic Force Microscope, light microscopy, electron microscopy, confocal microscopy, histology and digital image capture.
Flow Cytometry Facility - Science and Engineering/CBMS
The high throughput, precise sorting and adaptability offered by this instrument will support diverse projects from ‘single cell genomics’, to population proteomics and nanoparticle research.
Macquarie University Hospital - Medicine and Health Sciences
Facilities at the Macquarie University hospital are used to model biological systems eg zebrafish, rats, mice.
Macquarie University Plant Growth Facility - Science and Engineering/ Biology
Built in 1999 and housing a wide range of experimental programs the facility provides a basis for undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in biology, and research in national and international collaborative programs.
NMR Facility – Science and Engineering/CBMS
This new state of the art facility will host two solution-state instruments (Bruker AVII 600 MHz NMR Spectrometer (Narcissus) and Bruker Avance DPX 400 MHz NMR Spectrometer (Echo)) and a parahydrogen generator, used to produce hyperpolarised substrates.
