Equipment Donated

These are the tangible results of our fund-raising – equipment you have bought for laboratory research into Cell and Gene Therapy. This vital equipment is being used in the every day to help find a cure.

On behalf of the thousands of people whose lives you will save in the future..

Thank you for your donations.

Blue Pippin DNA Purification

This is an essential machine used to select DNA molecules of specific sizes. Having been installed in April 2014, the device is routinely used to promote our understanding of gene expression in normal and cancer cells.

RNA Sequencing (Macrogen)

To understand the conservation of gene expression controls in biology in order to achieve our ultimate goal to identify molecular mechanisms by which cancers are caused.

NanoDrop SpectroPhotoMeter

This is an essential machine used to select DNA molecules of specific sizes. Having been installed in April 2014, the device is routinely used to promote our understanding of gene expression in normal and cancer cells.

Syngene Gel Documentation System

The Syngene Gel Documentation System is a state of the art visualisation tool for recording DNA experiments in the laboratory. This machine is essential for almost all aspects of molecular biology undertaken in the laboratory. It is used dozens of times each day following installation in 2008.

Kodak Western Blot Imager

One of our first purchases, this Kodak Imager uses a cooled camera so very low levels of light can be detected from an antibody chemical reaction and photographed. This state-of-the-art device  was bought for $60,000 combined with funds from the Rebecca Cooper Foundation.

CFX96 RealTime PCR System

This is an essential machine used to select DNA molecules of specific sizes. Having been installed in April 2014, the device is routinely used to promote our understanding of gene expression in normal and cancer cells.

Micro Control Pipettes

These expensive little measuring devices are crucial to laboratory work, providing accurately dispensed quantities of DNA in solution and other liquids which require highly specific amounts to be properly analysed.

Eppendorf PCR Machine

The Eppendorf PCR machine is core to allow amplifications of DNA and RNA molecules to study gene expression and mutations.

Automated Cell Counter

This device provides an automated technology to improve the efficiency of cell counting. It is required dozens of times each day in the cell culture laboratory so we can study the proliferation and growth of cells.

NanoString Gene Counting Technology

This innovative technology for studying DNA has unlocked valuable genetic information from small amounts of human cancer tissue.
