The environmental exposure lab is located in 007 Milam Hall.
The laboratory contains all the equipment necessary to measure trace metals in biological and environmental samples such as:
Our laboratory partners with the Keck Laboratory at Oregon State University which includes state-of-the-art instrumentation for inorganic element analysis including:
The Keck Laboratory also contains a Class-100 Clean Room and is managed by a full-time inorganic chemist Dr Andy Ungener.
The laboratory contains all the equipment necessary to extract DNA and RNA from biological samples and partners with the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing at Oregon State University to conduct advanced molecular biological analysis including:
Our laboratory also partners with Oregon Health Science University’s Gene Microarray Shared Research Center which functions as a full-service genomics facility providing research scientists and clinicians with services for RNA expression profiling and DNA variation analysis
The laboratory also contains all the equipment to preserve biological samples for current and future analysis including -80°C Freezers that are alarmed and connected to back-up-power supplies.
