We are part of a well equipped chemical biology and glycoscience cluster at SFU. We have immediate access to a wide range of equipment, including for example, six 8-foot fume hoods and small molecule purification systems (Agilent 1200, Dionex ICS 3000) as well as an 8-foot fume hood for radiosynthesis. All equipment necessary for molecular biology, protein production (2 x Thermo Scientific MaxQ8000, Sorvall Centrifuge and Ultracentrifuges), and protein purification (AKTA-PRIME and AKTA-FPLC) is available in the laboratory. We also have a multimode fluorescence, luminescence, and absorbance plate readers (Molecular Devices, SpectraMax i3x), high content imaging microscope (Molecular Devices, Image Express Micro XLS Widefield High Content System), and shared access to fluorimeters and spectrometers. We have readily available a wide range of core facilities including nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) instruments (Two 600 MHz Bruker Avance II equipped with TCI and QNP cryoprobes), mass spectrometers (Bruker MaXis Impact, Bruker MicrOTOF) including our own tandem ion trap MS (QTrap4000), along with confocal, two-photon, and electron microscopy facilities, as well as mammalian tissue culture facilities that we have secured through funding from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation. Dr. Vocadlo also pioneered and served as the founding Director the Centre for High Throughput Chemical Biology (cHTCB), which operates a fully automated robotic screening facility and associated tissue culture facility, which our lab regularly uses.
