Research equipment

Fission yeast cells on the agar plate and in the liquid medium

Agar Plate    Liquid Medium

Micro tube and micro pipette

The main instrument for handling DNA, protein etc.

Micro tube  Micro pippet

Incubators

Incubator

Incubator

Centrifuge

Fluorescence microscope

Used for observation of cellular molecules labeled by fluorescence dyes or GFP (green fluorescence protein). The stage and CCD camera are controlled by the computer, so it provides three dimensional and time laps observation.

Fluorescence microscope

Tetrad manipulator

Used for genetic analysis of fission yeast.

Manipulator

HPLC (high-pressure liquid chromatography) mass spectrometer

Main equipment for proteome analysis.

HPLC-MS

Hybrid HPLC-Fourier transform ion-trap mass spectrometer (Orbitrap)

Main equipment for metabolome analysis.

LC-FT-MS

FACS (fluorescence-activated cell sorter)

For estimation of DNA contents in the cells and determination of cell cycle stage.
