EQUIPMENT

3D Printing and Bioprinting (Modified K8200)

Custom 3D bioprinter and heating system.

Capable of 3D bioprinting structures composed of living cells and printing scaffold designs using biological and bioabsorbable materials such as PLGA.

Capable of  3D printing thermoplastics using standard hot ends for fused deposition modeling, or heated syringe-based deposition.  

Filament Extrusion and Spooling

Using a Filastruder filament extruder and Filawinder we are capable of recycling filament such as ABS, PLA, Nylon, Polycarbonate, PET, Acrylic, and Polypropylene in a sustainable fashion. Development of novel filaments using bioplastics and biological materials is an ongoing area of research and service.

High Speed Imaging

The Photron FASTCAM SA-X2 is one of the fastest high speed cameras in Atlantic Canada with capabilities of up to 1,000,000 frames per second. This camera is used in conjunction with a custom mounting frame and microscope unit in microfluidic and lab-on-a-chip applications.

Microfluidic Setup

Our Chemyx Fusion 100 high precision syringe pumps allow for control of reproducible flow rates for microfluidic applications. These systems are capable of holding syringes from 0.5µl to 60 mL and can produce flow rates from 0.001 µl/min to 102 ml/min.

Other Equipment

Our lab is outfitted with various microscopes and hot plates to meet your needs.
