New unique equipment introduced into the ISEI BSU educational process

 From the beginning of the 2020-2021 academic year, the study laboratory ‹‹Environmental biotechnology›› (Head – Koktysh I.V.) of General Biology and Genetics Сhair of Environmental Medicine Faculty (ISEI BSU) got a multimodal tablet reader CLARIOstarPLUS (BMG Labtech, Germany) with LVF monochromators. The device provides a dynamic measurement of luminescence intensiveness and capture samples in the visible light spectrum in multiplexed mode and tablet format with the following data processing on PC. It provides research on cell metabolism, evaluation of its vital activity and cytotoxicity, apoptosis, and necrosis. Such a technical device opens new possibilities for solving biomolecular tasks and cyto analyst and will be used in the educational and scientific process.

   At the laboratory, with the help of new equipment, joint scientific research is carried out with “Nanophotonics” center SSI ‹‹B.I. Stepanov Institute of Phisics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus›› on the development of immunofluorescent check systems with plasma enhancement for the definition of significant antigens.
