Our projects are supported by two state-of-the-art core facilities:
Dr. Robert Latour, Core Director
Bioengineering and Bioimaging Core supports the characterization and analysis of biomaterials and implants developed by SCBioMat researchers. The core consists of three areas of primary focus: 1) Design and Synthesis of Materials; 2 ) Chemical and Surface Characterization; and 3) Mechanical Testing.
The list of instruments in the core are available here. Our core also provides testing and characterization services for students and faculty of Clemson University. Most of our unique equipment is available for industrial needs on a pay-per-use basis. Please contact the core director, Dr. Latour, or lab manager, Dr. Korneva.
The Cell, Tissue and Molecular analysis core provides resources and expertise for project investigators, enabling them to extend their research efforts in tissue bioengineering and permitting them to participate in an emerging field of stem cells that is likely to change the way regenerative medicine research is practiced in the future.
List of instruments in the core are available here. Our core provides technical support and consultation for various cell (cell isolation, culture, analysis, immunocytochemistry), tissue (embedding, sectioning, immunohistochemistry) and molecular biology (protein isolation, Western blot, zymography, nucleic acid isolation, PCR, RT-PCR) related protocols. For more information please contact our core director Dr. Simionescu or lab manager Dr. Nagy Mehesz.
