HANDS-ON LEARNING

The C-N science facilities are designed for hands-on learning in every aspect. Classrooms are equipped with full multimedia capability to utilize current instructional technologies. Ten laboratories accommodate the distinct applications of different courses. And we even maintain a cadaver lab for human anatomy courses.

Advanced labs are equipped with research-level instruments such as:

  • Bright-field, phase-contrast and fluorescence microscopes, plus inverted microscopes and a laser capture microdissection scope.
  • Centrifuges in most possible configurations including floor-standing preparative and ultracentrifuges.
  • PCR units, a BiaCore Biosensor and flow cytometers.
  • A range of spectrophotometers, including FT-IR, FT-NMR, UV-VIS, ICP-OES, Flame-AES, and MS.
  • Specially configured chromatography systems.
