Biology Laboratories


The industrial microbiology laboratory, located in Dr. Sepehr Laboratory complex, was established with various purposes such as investigating the use of micro-organisms in processes such as bio-remediation, the elimination of heavy metals, fermentation process, metabolite extraction, identification of environmental contaminators and methods to deal with them, as well as the use of microbial metabolites in biotechnology. The many pieces of equipment in the laboratories enable the students to carry out various types of research projects.  This laboratory complex includes a variety of evaluative and analytic equipment such as spectrophotometry, termocycler, scales of different types, Elisa plate readers, PH meter, different types of microscopes, centrifuge, microfuge, and equipment that preserve temperature and moisture for the growth of microorganisms such as fore, laboratory water bath, shakers, and laboratory hoods.
