Name: Biocam X Microelectrode Array
Description:

We have combined high technology, materials and functional design to achieve an outstanding compact device that has no parallel in the market.

4096 recording electrodes, sampled simultaneously at 18kHz, provide orders of magnitude more data points compared to conventional passive Multielectrode Arrays (MEAs),

thus leading to the recording, over a large bandwidth, of electrophysiological signals ranging from slow large-population field potentials to fast single-cell spiking activity.

The BioCAM X platform delivers unique insights into several in-vitro electrophysiological models, such as neuronal cell cultures, brain slices, retina preparations and cardiac cultures.

Name: AccuPyc II 1340 Pycnometer
Description:

Gas pycnometry is recognized as one of the most reliable techniques for obtaining true, absolute, skeletal, and apparent volume and density. This technique is non-destructive as it uses the gas displacement method to measure volume. Inert gases, such as helium or nitrogen, are used as the displacement medium. Density calculations using the gas displacement method are much more accurate and reproducible than the traditional Archimedes water displacement method.

The AccuPyc II 1340 Series Pycnometers are fast, fully automatic pycnometers that provide high-speed, high-precision volume measurements and true density calculations on a wide variety of powders, solids, and slurries. The instrument completes most sample analyses in less than three minutes without sacrificing accuracy. After analyses are started with a few keystrokes, data are collected, calculations are performed, and results displayed. A minimal amount of operator attention is required.

Gas pycnometry is used extensively for characterising a wide variety of solids such as catalysts, metal powders, soils, ceramics, active pharmaceutical ingredients, petroleums, cenospheresand solid foams.

Name: High Shear Granulator
Description:

The ProCepT Granulator is used for wet or melt high shear granulation and pelletisation. Depending on vessel size, the typical batch range varies from 15g to 1kg of product. The granulator is used to create wet agglomerates by high shear wet mixing of different powders. The atomized nozzle sprays the solvent with binder or active on the powder vortex, created by the impeller and chopper.

The wet granulation process is one of the most common ways to granulate. A liquid solution/suspension is added to a mix of dry powders to form an agglomerated more dense mass, ultimately resulting in the formation of free flowable granules or pellets.

Melt agglomeration is a process by which the solid fine particles are bound together into agglomerates, by agitation, kneading and layering, in the presence of a molten binding liquid. Dry agglomerates are obtained as the molten binding liquid solidifies by cooling.

Name: MDF-DU700VH-PE Ultra Low Temperature Freezer with VIP insulation (Upright Freezer)
Description:

The Panasonic MDF-DU700VH-PE (former KM-DU73Y1E) Eco VIP ultra-low freezer with natural refrigerants minimises energy consumption, reduces environmental impact and saves money. Innovative technology and Class IIa medical device certification provide secure storage of valuable research and clinical samples.

Natural Refrigerants Natural hydrocarbon refrigerants provide more efficient cooling due to their high latent heat of evaporation. As a result, smaller compressors can be used leading to greater energy efficiency. With exceptionally low global warming potential natural refrigerants are also better for the environment.

Heat Exchanger Design A new patent-pending heat exchanger design provides greater surface area contact at critical points in the refrigeration system. This improves overall efficiency and reduces compressor running time for lower energy consumption.

High Efficiency Insulation with VIP PLUS Technology Panasonic’s latest development in vacuum insulation is VIP PLUS technology. This revolutionary vacuum insulation panel reduces the wall thickness by approximately one half and achieves up to 30% more storage capacity than a conventionally insulated freezer, maximizing storage capacity and saving valuable lab space. Just as importantly, the advanced thermal insulation properties of VIP PLUS improve the energy efficiency of Eco VIP ULT freezers for lower running costs per sample.

Automatic Compressor Cycling Compressor ON - OFF cycles are regulated automatically in response to cooling demand to minimise compressor running time and to save energy.

Name: Zetasizer Nano ZS
Description:

Described by Malvern as the world’s most widely used system, this zetasizeris used for the measurement of the size, electrophoretic mobility of proteins, zeta potential of colloids and nanoparticles, and optionally the measurement of protein mobility and microrheologyof protein and polymer solutions.

The Zetasizer Nano ZS is a high performance two angle particle and molecular size analyzer for the enhanced detection of aggregates and measurement of small or dilute samples, and samples at very low or high concentration using dynamic light scattering with ‘NIBS’ optics. The ZSP also incorporates a zeta potential analyzer that uses electrophoretic light scattering for particles, molecules and surfaces, and a molecular weight analyzer using static light scattering.

Using Non-Invasive Backscatter optics (NIBS) it has significantly better performance than systems using 90 degree scattering optics.

In addition, a microrheology option is available for measuring sample viscosity and viscoelastic properties, as well as a Protein Measurement option for protein mobility measurements.

The flow mode option enables the system to be connected to an SEC or an FFF system to use as a detector for the size of proteins or nanoparticles.

Our high performance zetasizer also enables the measurement of the molecular weight and second viral coefficient of macromolecules, and the DLS interaction parameter.

Advanced quadrupole technology for greater sensitivity and quantitative dynamic range

The Q Exactive HF instrument uses a segmented quadrupole mass filter to achieve more precise precursor isolation for better discrimination between analytes and coeluting interferences. An advanced active beam guide increases ion transmission. The result is superior sensitivity and greater quantitative dynamic range, especially when dealing with complex mixtures.

Multiple, sophisticated modes of data acquisition/quantitation ensure optimum quantitative results

The Q Exactive HF mass spectrometer supports multiple approaches to quantitation including selected ion monitoring (SIM), parallel-reaction monitoring (PRM), and data-independent acquisition (DIA). Users can select the technique best matched to their sample and information requirements. •SIM - selected ion monitoring provides simple method setup with maximum selectivity and sensitivity. It is ideal for quantifying small numbers of compound in samples of moderate complexity. •PRM - parallel-reaction monitoring provides high selectivity and high sensitivity with confident targeted confirmation. Quantitation is carried out post-acquisition for greater throughput. High-resolution, accurate-mass Orbitrap spectra ensure confident confirmation through library matching. •DIA - data independent acquisition enables large-scale targeted proteomics studies with qualitative confirmation. Its simple and universal acquisition set-up does not require detailed sample knowledge prior to data acquisition. DIA increases reproducibility and comprehensiveness with a complete record of quantitative data. It facilitates retrospective analysis of additional analytes.

Ultra-high-field Orbitrap mass analyzer increases resolving power and scan speed for greater productivity and higher confidence in less time

The Q Exactive HF system features a new ultra-high-field Orbitrap mass analyzer that, while physically smaller, provides higher resolution and faster scan speeds. Combined with the inherent superior quality of Orbitrap spectra, the Q Exactive HF system provides more-confident identification and quantitation in less time

•Scan speed up to 18 Hz result in up to 50% more IDs from shorter gradients •Resolving power of up to 240,000 (FWHM) at m/z 200 ensures maximum ID confidence •Spectral quality significantly superior to Q-TOF mass spectrometers yields better protein coverage and quantitation results •Polarity switching (one full cycle in <1 sec at a resolution setting of 60,000) enables analysis of more, different compounds in a single analysis

Name: Carl Zeiss LSM 880 & Axio Examiner
Description:

Gain sensitivity, resolution and speed for all your experiments. Image with negligible phototoxicity or bleaching - without changing your workflow, sample labels or system operation. Airyscan’s unique Fast mode speeds up your imaging by a factor of four. This will propel you into the traditional domain of resonant scanning confocals without sacrificing sensitivity or resolution. Airyscan delivers a perfect optical section and superresolution with high sensitivity at 120 nm laterally and 350 nm axially. This transcends the deconvolution approach by preserving precious emission light normally rejected at a closed pinhole and achieving higher resolution. Combine the Fast mode for Airyscan with Z-stacks and tiling to image even large sample volumes with high image quality. Collect all your fluorescent signals in one go. Parallel acquisition lets you investigate multiple labels in minimum time, equipped with the highest number of detectors of any confocal. Improve your image quality with the unique combination of parallel spectral acquisition and high speed GPU deconvolution. Make the most of large fields of view and the highest speed of any linear scanning confocal – ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan delivers up to 27 fps at 480x480 pixels in Fast mode. Tailor Airyscan to your research needs with a choice of Superresolution, Sensitivity mode or the new Fast mode. Remove autofluorescence and simultaneously separate highly overlapping fluorophores in a single scan. This will minimize phototoxicity in the sample. Combine confocal imaging with single molecule techniques to gain mobility/concentration/oligomeric state information (FCS/FCCS/RICS/PCH). Select Airyscan’s Fast mode to perform functional multiphoton imaging deep inside your sample

Name: Zeiss AxioImager Widefield Fluorescence Microscope
Description:

Zeiss AxioImager Widefield Fluorescence Microscope with Brightfield modality.

Please contact Newcastle University's Bioimaging Unit to arrange bookings or training on this instrument.

bioimaging@ncl.ac.uk

www.ncl.ac.uk/bioimaging

The facility caters for a wide variety of imaging requirements and can offer: conventional brightfield, phase, DIC and wide field-fluorescence microscopy as well as confocal microscopy, multiphoton-microscopy, Light-sheet imaging, super resolution microscopy and 'high-content' confocal screening.

We can cover a wide range of imaging techniques on both live and fixed samples for example: Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleach (FRAP), Forster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET), time lapse (live-cell) light-sheet and volume (z-stack) imaging. Our equipment can also accommodate fixed and live-cell automated screening (high-content) applications and is supported by several networked and dedicated workstations running both commercial and open-source image analysis software.

Our facilities can be accessed by both internal and external academic researchers as well as commercial projects. Access can be on one of three levels: unsupervised (once trained), part-supervised, contract (we do the imaging). Our team of specialists can provide advice on all aspects of microscopy from experimental design through to image analysis.

Name: Varioskan LUX Multimode Microplate Reader
Description:

Catering to all applications, skill sets Varioskan LUX is a versatile tool for busy labs. Configure the instrument to your needs, then upgrade when your research focus changes. Supports the following measurement technologies: • Absorbance (UV-Vis, including pathlength correction) • Fluorescence Intensity (including FRET) • Luminescence (direct and filtered, including BRET) • AlphaScreen / AlphaLISA • Time-resolved fluorescence (including TR-FRET, hTRF) Flexible wavelength selection The instrument selects the measurement wavelength using filters or monochromators, depending on which is optimal for each measurement technology. • Monochromators in absorbance and fluorescence intensity • Filters in AlphaScreen and time-resolved fluorescence • Luminescence without wavelength selection (filters can be used if required) The instrument also allows spectral scanning for ultimate flexibility for identifying the optimal measurement wavelength for any assay, now and in the future. Features Automatic dynamic range selection Many multimode readers require the user to adjust PMT gain voltages manually in order to achieve the optimal sample signals for fluorescence and luminescence assays. But this manual trial and error process takes time, and can result in loss of sensitivity or over-saturation of signals. The Varioskan LUX multimode reader has an automatic dynamic range selection feature designed to automatically select the optimal reading range based on the signal intensity in each well - easing assay setup and helping you get optimal results, every time. Smart safety controls The potential for experimental errors—from user mistakes to power outages—are a frustrating reality of microplate reading. But the Varioskan LUX instrument is designed with automatic safety checks designed to alert you of potential problems before they happen. Integrated gas control Some cell-based assays require precise control over carbon dioxide and oxygen concentrations to keep the atmosphere optimal for cell growth. The ability to control O2 and CO2 levels in your microplate reader replaces the need for constant handling of plates between the incubator and reader, and helps to ensure that cells remain alive throughout the experiment.

Name: DMA Q800
Description:

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) measures the mechanical properties of materials as a function of time, temperature, and frequency. In addition to basic material properties, DMA also quantifies finished part characteristics, reflecting the important contribution that processing has on end-use performance. DMA is commonly used to measure glass transition temperatures and secondary transitions, orientation caused by processing, cold crystallization, cure optimization, filler effects in composites, and much more. DMA provides an accurate measure of material stiffness (modulus) but also other important mechanical properties such as damping, creep, and stress relaxation.

The Q800 is the world’s best selling dynamic mechanical analyser (DMA) due to its state-of-the-art technology. Excellent in applications of analysis of relative humidity, but not limited as the DMA is used in verification of ideal material behaviour with many other opportunities for experimentation.

Name: Assay Miniturisation Mosquito HTS
Description:

Using mosquito HTS means you can prepare “assay ready” plates containing test compounds direct from library stocks or dilution plates, as the disposable micropipettes guarantee zero carry-over between samples. mosquito HTS can aspirate from any source plate leaving dead volumes of less than 0.3 μL – both critical cost areas to consider when capitalising on the savings of assay miniaturisation for high throughput screening assays.

You can easily program mosquito HTS to perform traditional serial dilutions by aspirating, dispensing and mixing across a plate using miniaturised volumes ranging from 25 nL–1.2 μL. This allows you to effectively perform hit confirmation from high throughput screening assays using multiple compound concentrations.

Name: Chemistry NMR Service
Description:

The Chemistry Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility is housed in the Wolfson Suite of the Bedson Building; this underwent a major refurbishment in 2014 at a cost of over £1.3M and now hosts four NMR Spectrometers including a 700 MHz equipped with a nitrogen-cooled cryoprobe. The Spectrometers are equipped with a range of probes and are able to observe almost all NMR-active nuclei and perform the most demanding NMR experiments.

1D and 2D solution The full range of 1D and 2D solution NMR experiments are offered at frequencies of 300, 400, 500 and 700 MHz according to requirements. The cryoprobe equipped 700 MHz NMR machine is highly sensitive and is ideal for obtaining high-resolution spectra of compounds where sample quantity is an issue (e.g. natural product work). As well as the standard 1H and 13C NMR experiments, we are able to observe virtually all NMR active nuclei including 2H, 7Li, 11B, 17O, 19F, 27Al, 29Si, 31P, 51V, 95Mo, 103Rh, 113Cd, 119Sn, 183W, 195Pt and 207Pb.

2D Several 2D experiments are available including COSY, TOCSY, HMBC, HMQC, NOESY and ROESY.

Variable Temperature NMR Spectroscopy We routinely do Variable Temperature NMR Spectroscopy observing various nuclei at temperatures between -130 and +145 °C.

Name: Biomarker Facility
Description:

https://www.ncl.ac.uk/ion/about/facilities/biomarkers/

Our set-up, without being described as high-throughput, allows for the processing of large numbers of samples on a regular basis which often fits the needs of clinical research projects with a constant recruitment of participants and collection of samples. It is this "intermediate" capability that has made our team and our facility suitable in the context of several research projects, including MRC and BBSRC funded projects such as the Newcastle 85+ study, Newcastle Thousand Families and HALCyon and enabled the involvement of the facility in collaborative research with other national and international Universities (Boston, USA; Leiden, Netherlands; Keio University, Tokyo, Japan; InChianti Study, Parma University, Italy) and with industrial partners (Unilever, Procter and Gamble).

We offer a wide range of procedures with very flexible costs according to the magnitude of the study. Beyond those assays already available in our lab, we can also assist researchers with the development of reliable assays for new biomarkers and overall costings for grant applications.

Description:

www.ncl.ac.uk/biobanks

Many areas of contemporary biomedicine, both within the academic and commercial sectors, are dependent on access to well characterised collections of human tissues. Following the introduction of the Human Tissue Act (HTA) in 2006 there is now a clear ethical and legal framework for such activity to be confidently expanded.

Newcastle is ideally placed to take advantage of this opportunity as it has several internationally recognised groups which are already actively involved in encouraging access to samples taken from patients and healthy volunteers. Samples may be deposited with the Biobank for safe keeping and issued on request when required. Under these circumstances there is no need for the individual researcher to register samples under the HTA.

If a researcher chooses to keep samples in their own laboratory- these will need to be registered under the HTA and the collection made available for regular internal audits. In order to assist the Designated Individual (Professor Andrew Hall) to discharge his duties as set out in the HTA licence the Faculty of Medical Sciences has appointed a Quality Assurance Manager to perform regular audits and advise on regulatory compliance. In addition funds have been obtained to equip a tissue processing facility to prepare samples for analysis and storage, and an air-conditioned freezer room with remote alarm systems to monitor cryostorage. Samples can be stored at -20°C, -80°C or in liquid nitrogen.

Tissue processing capabilities include:

•sectioning •immunohistochemical analysis •preparation of tissue microarrays •digital image storage A web-based sample tracking system has been introduced which enables researchers to determine what samples are available for research collaborations and to ensure compliance with the HTA. Staff in the biobank will also provide expert advice on applications for ethical approval, assist in establishing peer-review and governance oversight for generic biobanks and promote public engagement.

Scanning electron microscope for the visualisation of biological and material samples. Sample preparation is also available (critical point dryer and gold-coater).

A scanning electron microscope (SEM) is a type of electron microscope that produces images of a sample by scanning it with a focused beam of electrons. The electrons interact with atoms in the sample, producing various signals that can be detected and that contain information about the sample's surface topography and composition. The electron beam is generally scanned in a raster scan pattern, and the beam's position is combined with the detected signal to produce an image. SEM can achieve resolution better than 1 nanometer. Specimens can be observed in high vacuum, in low vacuum, in wet conditions (in environmental SEM), and at a wide range of cryogenic or elevated temperatures.

The most common mode of detection is by secondary electrons emitted by atoms excited by the electron beam. On a flat surface, the plume of secondary electrons is mostly contained by the sample, but on a tilted surface, the plume is partially exposed and more electrons are emitted. By scanning the sample and detecting the secondary electrons, an image displaying the topography of the surface is created.

Name: Zetasizer Nano ZS (Malvern Instruments)
Description:

The Zetasizer Nano ZS is a high performance two angle particle and molecular size analyzer for the enhanced detection of aggregates and measurement of small or dilute samples, and samples at very low or high concentration using dynamic light scattering with ‘NIBS’ optics. The ZSP also incorporates a zeta potential analyzer that uses electrophoretic light scattering for particles, molecules and surfaces, and a molecular weight analyzer using static light scattering.

Using Non-Invasive Backscatter optics (NIBS) it has significantly better performance than systems using 90 degree scattering optics.

In addition, a microrheology option is available for measuring sample viscosity and viscoelastic properties, as well as a Protein Measurement option for protein mobility measurements.

The flow mode option enables the system to be connected to an SEC or an FFF system to use as a detector for the size of proteins or nanoparticles.

A choice of cuvettes are available, from disposable single-use to specific cells for viscous or high concentration samples or measuring the zeta potential of surfaces.

Name: Kinexus Pro+
Description:

Kinexus is a rotational rheometer system that applies controlled shear deformation to a sample under test, to enable measurement of flow properties (such as shear viscosity from flow tests) and dynamic material properties (such viscoelastic modulus and phase angle from oscillation tests).

A rotational rheometer system comprises several key components to enable robust, reliable and accessible rheological measurements for a particular sample or application:

  • RHEOMETER BASE UNIT

Control of key system functions, including torque (for stress control), rotational position change (for strain or rate control), normal force and vertical position change (for sample loading and gap set).

  • MEASURING SYSTEM/GEOMETRY

The measuring system is the link between the rheometer and the sample, and defines the applied shear field. The type of measuring system must be appropriate to the sample type and the test under consideration.

  • TEMPERATURE/ENVIRONMENT CONTROL UNIT

Accurate control is essential since rheological properties are a strong function of temperature and environmental conditions.

  • INSTRUMENT SOFTWARE Rheological testing can be, by its nature, relatively complex to set up. Malvern Panalytical’s cornerstone Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) approach to material testing has been enhanced in rSpace software to revolutionize and simplify user interaction, and to bring ‘expert system’ guidance and SOP-driven testing to rheological measurements for the first time.

Name: NanoString Technologies Inc High-Throughput Multiplexed Gene Expression Analysis System
Description:

What is Nanostring Technology

The NanoString nCounter analysis system is the first and only platform that can deliver direct profiling of individual molecules in a highly multiplexed single reaction without any need for amplification. This protocol provides digital readouts of relative gene expression from hundreds of mRNA species simultaneously, whilst obviating any enzymatic reactions that may introduce bias in the results.

'The nCounter Platform Boasts'

• Ability to measure 20 to 800+ genes in a single reaction • Digitally detect and analyse samples in a fully automated manner • No signal amplification or polymerase steps required • High flexibility in sample input (including mRNA, miRNA, FFPE samples and whole cell lysate) • High throughput with minimal hands-on time

'How the nCounter Analysis System Works'

For every gene sequence to be interrogated, two target specific probes are created complementary to the mRNA sequence selected for the gene of interest. One carries a sequence of fluorescent tags that are used as a molecular barcode for direct digital detection, while the other carries a biotin molecule used for immobilisation of the sample cartridge during the process of data acquisition. The fluorescent-tagged 'Reporter Probe' is assigned a specific sequence of 7 tags allowing for thousands of barcode combinations. The two probes are provided in excess in order to drive the hybridisation reaction to completion, with any unbound or partially bound probes removed through a series of automated washing steps performed by the NanoString Prep Station prior to the detection and analysis process.

After removal of excess probes, the captured mRNA is bound to the streptavidin-coated cartridge surface by its bound biotin probe. At this point an electrical current is used to align the mRNA-probe complexes, which are then immobilised using a proprietary reagent. Once immobilised the sample cartridge is stable and can be stored at 4 degrees Celsius for some time if necessary.

For analysis, the cartridge is transferred to the Digital Analyser where an automated optical camera records up to 555 fields of view across the cartridge, simultaneously detecting and recording the number of sequence specific probes bound to the surface of each sample cell. As the platform is directly imaging individual molecules, we are able to count the actual number of times each code is found in the sample.

These counts are provided as a simple RCC file for use in excel, 'R' or NanoString's own analysis and normalisation software 'nSolver'. To ensure validity, the sample aliquots contain a number of pre-defined positive and negative controls as well as a number of 'housekeeping' gene target probes which are counted along with the gene sequences being investigated for simple standardisation of sample counts.

Name: PolyTec UHF-120 Ultra High Frequency Vibrometer
Description:

By combining micro- and nanotechnology with ultrasonic actuation, engineers need new methods and instruments for characterizing mechanical responses at these frequencies and displacements. Laser-based, non-contact optical testing is the best choice since it avoids mass loading from direct contact.

Polytec’s new UHF-120 Vibrometer can characterize the out-of-plane vibrations at ultra-high frequencies, extending the vibration frequency bandwidth up to 1.2 GHz. Complete with a new optical design, the instrument retains the advantages and features familiar to laser vibrometer users. The system consists of a heterodyne interferometer with a controller box. The optical head provides a heterodyne detector signal that is acquired with a fast digital oscilloscope. The digitized detector signal is transferred to a PC where the heterodyne carrier is demodulated by a new software module in Polytec’s Vibsoft package.

The system has a gate function for reducing the output light power to minimize the energy transfer from the measurement beam to the structure and for easy alignment of the beam on the specimen. In addition, an integrated camera controls the measurement spot positioning using bright-field microscope illumination.

Name: MSK-USP-02 Desk-top ultrasonic spray Pyrolysis coater
Description:

Spray pyrolysis

Is a process in which a thin film is deposited by spraying a solution on a heated surface, where the constituent reacts to form a chemical compound. The process is particularly useful for the deposition of oxides and has long been a production method for a long period for applying a transparent electrical conductor of Tin oxide (SnO2) or Stannic oxide to glass. Now is popular to prepare perovskite solar cell.

MSK-USP-02

Is a desk-top ultrasonic spray pyrolysis ( USP) equipment, where parameters like dispensing rate of the solution and speed of spray head movement are precisely controlled which are difficult to be controlled in a manual process. A positive displacement pump controlled by stepper motor and microprocessor is used to dispense solution as per requirement. The ultrasonic spray head provide thinner particle coating and its movement is controlled by stepper motor driven linear stages in X and Y direction to ensure uniform coating. The temperature of the substrate heater plate is controlled independently through a dedicated controller.

Name: Netzsch Geratebau LFA 467 Hyperflash and DSC 214 Polyma
Description:

Broadest temperature range available, from -100°C to 500°C With a single instrument setup – that is, without having to swap out either the detector or the furnace – the LFA 467 HyperFlash® can carry out measurements from -100°C to 500°C. Coupled with the broadest range of accessories available on the market, the instrument opens the door to completely new dimensions in the determination of thermophysical properties.

Sample throughput up to 4 times higher due to sample holder for 16 samples One unique advantage of the LFA 467 HyperFlash® is its ability to simultaneously measure up to 16 samples over the entire temperature range. This allows for maximum sample throughput with a minimum input of operational time and effort. Refill systems are available for automatic refilling of the Dewar on both the detector and the furnace, allowing uninterrupted operation of the LFA system around the clock.

ZoomOptics for more precise measurement results without measurement errors The patented ZoomOptics system (patent no.: DE 10 2012 106 955 B4 2014.04.03) optimizes the field of view of the detector, thus eliminating any influences caused by aperture stops. The result is a significant increase in the precision of the measurement results.

Ultra-fast recording of measurement data for thin samples (2 MHz) Thin films and high-conductivity materials require a very high data acquisition rate for the precise recording of rapid temperature increases on a sample’s upper surface. The LFA 467 HyperFlash® offers a sampling rate of 2 MHz – an unprecedented value for LFA systems.

Description:

www.ncl.ac.uk/emrs

em.researchservices@ncl.ac.uk

Transmission electron microscope for visualisation of biological and material samples. Equipped with Optotronics Macrofire Monochrome CCD camera module.

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is a microscopy technique in which a beam of electrons is transmitted through an ultra-thin specimen, interacting with the specimen as it passes through. An image is formed from the interaction of the electrons transmitted through the specimen; the image is magnified and focused onto an imaging device.

TEMs are capable of imaging at a significantly higher resolution than light microscopes, owing to the small de Broglie wavelength of electrons. This enables the instrument's user to examine fine detail—even as small as a single column of atoms, which is thousands of times smaller than the smallest resolvable object in a light microscope.

At smaller magnifications TEM image contrast is due to absorption of electrons in the material, due to the thickness and composition of the material. At higher magnifications complex wave interactions modulate the intensity of the image, requiring expert analysis of observed images. Alternate modes of use allow for the TEM to observe modulations in chemical identity, crystal orientation, electronic structure and sample induced electron phase shift as well as the regular absorption based imaging.

Name: CrystalSCAN
Description:

The need to study solubility is extremely widespread in the chemical industry due to the importance of solids as the final form of many products. HEL's CrystalSCAN makes it easy for chemists to determine and optimise the solubility and recrystallisation temperature of multiple samples, in parallel.

CrystalSCAN is a parallel synthesis platform, consisting of 4 reactors with independent stirring and temperature controlled zones. Coupled with HEL's proprietary turbidity probes and controlled-dilution pumps, the system delivers a fast and automated tool for Meta-Stable Zone-Widths (MSZW) and solubility data determination in multiple samples.

  • SOFTWARE

HEL's winISO software with pre-defined test procedures enables the user to simply complete an input table for fully automated testing. Raw temperature and turbidity data is displayed graphically as the experiment proceeds. The output of crystallisation experiments is typically solubility curves and MSZW, both of which are generated in real-time within winISO and are available for immediate export as a jpeg image.

Data files are also available as .csv for offline analysis in Excel or HEL's iQ data-analysis software.

Name: Andor Technology Andor Revolution Spinning Disk Imaging
Description:

Spinning disk microscopy is an established imaging technique of choice for viewing and recording both dynamic and light-sensitive processes in isolated living cells or tissues. The Andor Revolution XD system funded by the Wellcome Trust utilises the Yokogawa CSU-X1 spinning disk head and an Ixon+ back-illuminated EMCCD camera (Andor) coupled to an Olympus IX81 inverted microscope. The system is capable of capturing high speed (30fps, 512x512 to 100fps at 128x128) or time-lapse (seconds to hours) confocal data sets from low light emitting specimens. There is also an in-line specialized FRAPPA unit for monitoring fast (msec) multi-point FRAP/FRET events and the capability of engaging an external source for photolytic uncaging of caged compounds.

The microscope employs a software-operated piezo motorized z-stage. A mobile, miniature heated environmental chamber, with the capacity to hold singular wells (35mm diameter) or a multi-chamber slide (up to 8 smaller wells), can be placed atop the microscope stage with the ability to set, maintain and monitor temperature, humidity, O2 and CO2 levels as imaging conditions dictate.

The system is run through Andor's IQ2 software package. Data can be subsequently processed through this package or imported to others such as Image J.

Name: Newcastle Cosmogenic Isotope Laboratory
Description:

The Newcastle Cosmogenic Isotope Facility is dedicated to terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides, which we used as chronometers and tracers in Earth Sciences. Our research interests cover a wide spectrum of earth surface problems that we quantify using cosmogenic isotopes. In particular, we have worked on projects looking at estimating the rates of motion of active faults, the timing of ice sheet deglaciation and advance, the rates and timing of fluvial incision and mountain denudation. Throughout, we always aim at gaining a better understanding of the production of cosmogenic nuclides and the corrections we applied to interpret our data.

Our capabilities include the routine extraction of 10Be, 26Al, and 36Cl. We also prepare samples for 3He and 21Ne. Analysis of samples is then performed by Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) or Mass Spectrometry (MS) facilities such as SUERC, DREAMS, LLNL and CEREGE.

Name: Climate Control Chambers
Description:

To investigate the effect of environmental variables such as temperature and circadian light cycles, it is often necessary to be able to replicate natural conditions in a controlled environment. The Climate Control Chambers run by the Centre for Behaviour and Evolution offer the possibility of doing this. The facility offers four chambers (4.2m deep x 2.5m wide x 2.2m high) in which temperature can be independently controlled between -10°C and +30°C, with an error of less than 2°C either way.

Daily temperature profiles can be programmed to mimic natural circadian changes. The light cycle inside the chambers can also be programmed to any circadian pattern, including dawn and dusk. The humidity in the chambers is controlled to a degree, but not very finely.

The chambers are designed to be completely washable on the inside, and there is access to water, as well as access to run cables into them. The doors contain one-way observation windows to monitor the inside of the chambers without needing to open the insulating doors. The chambers are located in a secure area on the main campus.

Name: DVS Advantage 1
Description:

This is a valued tool in laboratories globally, within research and design, from polymorphism and compound stability studies to bulk and surface sorption effects of water and organic vapours. It is a vital part of quality control analyses and can even be found within the packaging industry to measure the effects of humidity and temperature on the contents.

The DVS is used worldwide to rapidly measure uptake and loss of moisture or organic vapours by flowing a carrier gas at a specified relative humidity over a sample suspended from the weighing mechanism of an ultra-sensitive recording microbalance.

More examples of DVS applications include moisture uptake behaviour of food and natural materials, stability and caking of food ingredients, moisture diffusion into blister packaging systems, moisture sorption of hydrophobic pharmaceutical materials, surface energies and surface areas of powders using organic vapour probes, determination of deliquescence points, moisture-induced glass transition in an amorphous material, determination of amorphous contents, pharmaceutical stability, drying and thermal degradation, adsorption of porous materials.

Name: ION S5 system
Description:

The Ion S5™ next-generation sequencing system enables a simple targeted sequencing workflow for your lab at an affordable price, without compromising on performance or reliability. The Ion S5 System leverages the speed of semiconductor sequencing with impressive on-board computing power, to enable the production of high quality sequencing data in as little as 2.5 hours and enable you to go from DNA library to data in as little as 24 hours with only 45 minutes of total hands-on time on the Ion Chef™ System and the Ion S5 System. The Ion S5 System is simple to use with cartridge-based reagents and offers superior scalability and flexibility to support a broad range of high throughput sequencing applications, from microbial genomes and gene panels to exomes and transcriptomes, using our 5 Series chips.

Speed Some research decisions can’t wait. A few hours could make all the difference in your quest for the right answer.With other light-based sequencers you could wait almost 60 hours for results. With the Ion S5 System you get results in as little as 24 hours (with a 2.5-4 hour sequencer run time and overnight Ion Chef System run).

Simplicity With single-day installation, a straightforward user interface, and cartridge-loaded reagents, the Ion S5 System is easy to use. Beyond this, the system is part of a workflow that allows you to go from DNA to data with only 45 minutes of total hands-on time on the Ion Chef System and the Ion S5 System, significantly less than other targeted sequencing solutions that require as much as 2.5 hours of hands-on time. Combined with Ion AmpliSeq™ technology for target selection, the Ion Chef™ System for automated library and template preparation, and Ion Reporter™ Software for automated variant annotation, targeted sequencing becomes simpler than ever.

Small sample input Low input DNA for challenging samples types, such as formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue, retrospective samples from fine needle aspirates, and cell-free DNA extracted from blood (cfDNA) can be difficult to sequence on competititor next-generation sequencers. However, with Ion AmpliSeq technology and the Ion S5 Sequencer, you can use as little as 10 ng input DNA or RNA.

Scalability Why buy multiple systems for your lab when you can run all of your targeted sequencing or microbial applications on a single next-generation sequencer? The Ion S5 System has a modular build, so your lab has the flexibility to do multiple targeted sequencing applications on a single system.

Simple analysis and storage solutions Whether you are new to next-generation sequencing or an expert user, Torrent Suite™ Software and Ion Reporter™ Software make it easy for you to get started with next-generation sequencing. Plan, monitor, track, and analyze your runs using Torrent Suite Software (pre-installed on the Torrent Server). Integrate, annotate, and interpret variants using Ion Reporter Software (Cloud or local options available based on your needs).

Name: Morphologi G3-ID
Description:

The Morphologi G3-ID is ideally suited to solving complex particle characterization problems where component-specific particle size and shape distributions are required. This includes measurement of components within powder blends and suspensions, along with the identification of contaminant or suspicious particles within product formulations.

The measurement workflow can be divided into three distinct steps, each of which can be automated:

  • SAMPLE PREPARATION

This step is critical to getting good results; spatial separation of individual particles and agglomerates is the goal. The Morphologi G3-ID has an integrated dry powder disperser which makes preparing dry powder samples easy and reproducible. The applied dispersion energy can be precisely controlled, enabling the measurement process to be optimized for a range of material types. Dispersion is achieved without explosively shocking the particles, avoiding the damage of fragile particles while ensuring strongly agglomerated materials are dispersed. Effective dispersion of fibers can also be achieved. Accessories for presenting suspended or filtered samples that fit directly into the Morphologi G3-ID’s automated stage are also available.

  • PARTICLE SIZE AND SHAPE

The instrument automatically measures the size and shape of particles in a dispersed sample in exactly the same manner as the Morphologi G3. This ensures there is no compromise on the reliability of the particle size and shape data, which is not the case with many chemical mapping and imaging techniques.

  • CHEMICAL IDENTIFICATION

The instrument automatically finds particles of interest for chemical identification based on pre-defined classification rules. A Raman spectrum is acquired from the center of mass of each particle. Chemical identification is then achieved based upon established spectroscopic algorithms incorporated within the Morphologi G3-ID software. This allows enumeration of defined classes of particles as well as the reporting of component-specific particle size and shape distributions. Spectra of unknown particles can be directly exported to Bio-Rad’s KnowItAll® ID Expert software for comparison against its Raman library containing over 13,000 spectra.

Name: Spinsolve Benchtop NMR
Description:

Spinsolve is ideal for chemists in academia and industry where it can be used for reaction completion checks, identification, structure elucidation, quantification, purity measurements, online reaction monitoring and quality control (QA/QC).

NMR spectroscopy has a huge range of applications in general chemistry, purity determination, non-destructive testing, data acquisition in the petroleum industry, process control and acquisition of dynamic information.

“It has a small footprint; it is robust (student friendly); and is inexpensive in comparison to purchase and operating costs for a high field NMR. In the near future, we are going to place this in series with our Syrris Africa Microfluidic System for online NMR of new chemical entity library generation under flow conditions. This would be tandem with online LC/MS and would give the opportunity to have very fast synthesis and analysis of hundreds of compounds overnight. Setup of Magritek will be very easy in comparison to a high field, supercooled NMR.” - one of our lecturers in Medicinal Chemistry.

Name: MDF-C2156VAN-PE Ultra Low Temperature Freezer (Chest Freezer)
Description:

The worlds largest capacity -150ºC cryogenic freezer Why Freeze to -150C in a cryogenic freezer

An important factor to consider when preserving cells or tissue, when using a cryogenic freezer, is to prevent amorphous ice crystals from recrystallizing within and outside the cells. Cryogenic freezing is therefore important to retain cell viability during cryopreservation.

Samples that are maintained in an ultra-low temperature freezer at -150°C which is far lower than the recrystallization point (-130°C for pure water) can be preserved semi-permanently.

Cryogenic freezer preservation at ultra-low temperatures maintains vitrification without crystallization occurring inside and outside cells. In contrast to conventional liquid nitrogen preservation containers, freezer preservation has numerous advantages: no sample contamination, no sudden liquid eruptions as well as low operational costs. Panasonic freezers make long-term storage below the recrystallization point easier and more stable than ever before.

Specially designed compressor and refrigeration system for the cryogenic freezer

This Cryogenic Freezer features a specially designed compressor and a cascade refrigeration system for rapid and durable ultra-low temperature pull-down. This cutting edge technology also ensures that noise levels emitted are kept to a minimum.

Panasonic V.I.P. PLUS™ Insulation within the cryogenic freezer

150°C cryogenic freezers use patented revolutionary vacuum insulation cabinet construction that reduces the wall thickness from 175mm to 135mm (6.9” to 5.3”) and achieves up to 25% more storage capacity than a conventionally insulated freezer without increasing the footprint.

Cryogenic freezer: Micro-processor Temperature Control with LED Digital Display

Extremely accurate, easy-to-read display. The temperature inside the cryogenic freezer can be set and monitored easily by means of the microprocessor temperature control with an LCD digital display. The display uses pop-up menus and provides a graphical display with data-logging functions. Temperature data is electronically recorded for either one week or one month periods. The history of lid opening and closing is recorded for lid openings that exceed 2 minutes.

The display also shows status alert monitoring. The ambient conditions and system conditions are continually monitored to provide an alert of any abnormalities before a potential problem happens.

Cryogenic freezer: Hot line for secure sealing

Moisture condensation at the top edges of the cabinet due to differences in temperature inside and out causes frost and icing problems that may reduce heat insulation efficiency and obstruct door movements. These problems are prevented by the “hot line” by means of which hot gas from the higher temperature circuit is circulated through the problem areas.

Name: Leica Microsystems UK Ltd LMD7 System
Description:

Laser Microdissection (LMD, also known as Laser Capture Microdissection or LCM) enables users to isolate specific single cells or entire areas of tissue. Powered by a unique laser design and dynamic software, Leica LMD systems allow users to easily isolate Regions of Interest (ROI) from entire areas of tissue down to single cells or even subcellular structures such as chromosomes.

LMD is typically used in genomics (DNA), transcriptomics (mRNA, miRNA), proteomics, metabolomics, and even next generation sequencing (NGS). Researchers in neurology, cancer research, plant analysis, forensics or climate research rely on this method. Furthermore, LMD is a perfect tool for live cell culture (LCC), for cloning and re-cultivation, manipulation or downstream analysis.

Electron Microscopy

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) enables imaging of a surface using an electron beam. The electron beam interacts with the surface of the sample and by using a variety of detectors topographic images, atomic-number (Z) contrast images, element composition and fluorescence information can be obtained from the specimen.

In our microscopy suite we have two SEMs and an ESEM which provide a range of analytical techniques. Our capabilities include:

Digital imaging over a range of magnifications depending on sample quality (~ X20 to X300 000), in the following modes ◦secondary electron emission (SEI) - ideal for materials with surface relief and/or multiple faces ◦backscattered electron (BSE) - best suited to thin section work ◦cathodoluminescence (CL) - samples must contain luminescent elements and be thin section form

Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS or EDX) ◦EDX detectors allow the ID and semi-quantification of elements from carbon (C) upwards ◦output is in the form of spot/point data, average area measurements or single element digi-mapping (using X-ray intensity distribution)

Low vacuum (LV) mode for sensitive samples or those not appropriate for carbon or gold coating (typically used to improve conductivity)

Electron backscatter diffraction EBSD (only on the XL30 ESEM)

Samples

•Your samples should all be clearly labelled with unique identifiers •Dry powder and material samples are usually best stored in glass containers and not in plastic bags or bottles (as plastics are prone to static and some can contaminate samples) •Disposal - we will dispose of all unclaimed samples after three months from analysis completion

X-ray Powder Diffraction

XRPD is a robust technique used for the characterisation of crystalline materials, i.e. those which have a degree of order to their structure. By exposing a sample to an X-ray beam of known wavelength, a diffraction pattern unique to each crystalline phase within that sample material is generated and this pattern is used to identify and characterise each crystalline phase present.

Through interpretation of diffraction patterns, XRPD analysis allows:

•identification of crystalline phases •measurement of crystallite/crystal domain size within discrete crystalline phases •calculation of unit cell dimensions through pattern indexing •phase quanitification using one of several methods The PANalytical X'Pert Pro Multipurpose Diffractometer (MPD) is used for most of our X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) analysis. It has various interchangeable attachments:

•X'Celerator (RTMS detector) +/- monochromator •Anton Paar HTK2000 heating stage •automated sample changer (15-berth magazine) •sample spinner stage or sample bracket options

We also have a PW1730 X-ray generator with a sample spinner stage.

Although our XRPD lab is primarily a powder diffraction facility, we often carry out phase identification in thin film samples. Contact us if you are interested in thin film analysis - we will try to accommodate your analytical requests.

Complimentary to our XRPD lab is the X-ray crystallography laboratory in the School of Chemistry who have extensive expertise in crystal structure determinations using single-crystal diffractometers.

Chemical Analysis

In our chemistry section we provide a range of analytical techniques:

•Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES) •Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) •Carbon, Hydrogen and Nitrogen Combustion Analysis (CHN)

Name: Generation robots Kilobot
Description:

Kilobot is a low-cost, easy-to-use minitature robot designed for the development of “swarms” of robots that can be programmed to perform useful functions by coordinating interactions among many individuals. These swarms are inspired by social insects, such as ant or colonies, that can efficiently search for food sources in large complex environments, collectively transport large objects, and coordinate the building of nests and bridges in such environments.

Following this inspiration from nature, robot swarms might one day tunnel through rubble to find survivors, monitor the environment and remove contaminants, assist dwindling bee populations in pollinating crops, and self-assemble to form support structures in collapsed buildings. The Kilobot is designed to provide scientists with a physical testbed for advancing the understanding of collective behavior and realizing its potential to deliver solutions for a wide range of challenges.

Name: m2p Labs G-BL100-1 BioLector Microbioreactor system
Description:

The BioLector® is the first bench top microbioreactor system to perform high-throughput fermentations together with online monitoring of the most common fermentation parameters (biomass, pH, DO and fluorescent molecules).

The BioLector® microbioreactor is based on microtiter plate formats and operates with non-invasive, optical sensors. Due to the continuous and rigorous shaking during the optical measurements and over the whole experimental time it is ideally suited for aerobic and anaerobic cultures. For the first time real time culture monitoring at a massive parallel scale becomes possible!

The full scalable microbioreactor BioLector® is running 48 cultivations (using FlowerPlates® or Round Well Plates) parallel in one step.

In the basic version the BioLector® is able to measure biomass, pH, DO and GFP online while running a cultivation. Additionally the microbioreactor controls the shaking speed, the temperature inside the cultivation chamber as well as the humidity.

For most cultivations this features fit already very well. However, if there is a high or very low oxygen level required, a CO2 enriched aeration, anaerobic conditions, or the possibility for measuring Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET), the system can be very easy upgraded with additional modules.

Name: High Throughput Screening
Description:

https://www.ncl.ac.uk/htsf/

The High Throughput Screening Facility in the medical faculty at Newcastle University possesses a range of robotic equipment for high throughput biological screens and can assist with experimental design and statistical analysis.

Services Offered

■siRNA and mammalian screening: siRNAs can be cherry picked from libraries. siRNAs can be transfected into mammalian cell cultures.

■Synthetic Genetic Array (SGA): A query gene mutation(s) is combined with all non-essential null mutations in the budding yeast genome to produce 5000 different double mutant yeast strains. Fitness of all double mutants is determined by photography.

■Quantitative Fitness Analysis (QFA): Determines fitness of thousands of parallel microbial cultures growing on solid agar plates. QFA can be used to assess the effects of genetic, drug, temperature or nutrient interventions. Typically we quantify cell density of 384 independent cultures per plate and determine the exponential-phase growth rate, saturated culture density and fitness for all strains.

■Libraries and Culture Handling: We have single-deletion and GAL overexpression libraries from S. cerevisiae, and we are happy to discuss the purchase of other libraries. We can also handle many other biological materials (e.g. siRNA, bacterial, S. pombe or mammalian cells).

Name: Next Generation Impactor
Description:

Designed with the intention of developing a new impactor specifically for inhaled and nasal products, the Next Generation Impactor has been accepted into the Pharmacopoeias in 2005.

The NGI has seven stages, five of which are in the range 0.5 to 5 microns plus a micro-orifice collector which acts as a final filter and a horizontal planar layout adopted for ease of operation and automation.

The air flow passes through the impactor in a saw tooth pattern. Particle sizing is achieved by successively increasing the velocity of the air stream by forcing it through a series of nozzles containing progressively reducing jet diameters.

The resultant samples from each stage are collected in a series of collection cups such that all the cups can be removed and/or replaced in one single operation.

Name: Leica CM1950 Cryostat
Description:

With a CM1950, laboratories can be sure they have an instrument that meets their requirements for high quality sectioning, unmatched user safety and significantly improved workflows.

To ensure the CM1950 meets the demanding expectations of cryostat users, Leica Microsystems have introduced two significant features: the CryoZone™ cooling system and the optional vacuum waste removal system. The CryoZone system controls a zone of uniformly cool air in the critical areas of the cryochamber. This cool air circulates around the specimen, knife and anti-roll guide to create the optimal conditions for consistent, high-quality sectioning. The optional vacuum system aids workflow and safety. It saves time by keeping sections flat and wrinkle-free and enhances operator safety by removing waste material.

Name: Neurospec AG, Active Two Base System
Description:

The new ActiveTwo system sets new standards for multi channel, high resolution biopotential measurement systems for research applications. The system is a further development of the successful ActiveOne system, the first commercially available system with active electrodes. Advances in technology have allowed BioSemi to significantly increase the number of channels, digital resolution, input range, and sample rate, without any increase in size, power-consumption or costs. Second generation active electrodes are smaller in size with less cable weight, while offering even better specs in terms of low-frequency noise and input impedance. The new system confirms the solid lead that BioSemi has built over competing designs during the last years.

Name: Hurco TMX8 CNC Lathe
Description:
  • The TMX slant-bed lathes are ideal for medium-sized batches and larger. They have many of the design specifications required for high performance turning.
  • Design + Construction: It starts with a certified Meehanite® casting, which provides superb dampening characteristics that inhibit thermal deformation and twisting. This robust machine tool features oversized Z-axis guide rails that are strategically spaced to provide excellent support to the cross slide. A wide saddle increases rigidity even further. Ultimately, all of these design features mean the TMX lathes can withstand heavier loads and more momentum.
  • Servo Turret: Fast Duplomatic servo turret with 12-tool stations is designed to provide faster and more accurate tool indexes. You can use any combination of ID and OD tool holders.
  • Heat Isolation System: Because heat is the enemy of machine tools, we’ve designed our TMX lathes to promote thermal stability by isolating heat producing components and adding a spindle chiller.
  • Machining Capacity: The generous turning diameter and turning length allows a wide range of part sizes and applications.
