8- (-20 C) refrigerator, and 4-8 C refrigerator
9- autoclave
10- double water distiller
11- hood
12- micropipettes (30 sets)
13- microwave oven
14-10 ml tube centrifuge
15- micro-centrifuge (room temp; max speed 10000 rpm)
16- ependorf tubes
17- racks, tips, etc…

Kits were received regularly once every year as they  must be included in the departmental budget. Chemicals are available for running manual methods.

This lab receives at least three to four sessions of Molecular Biology students per semester, each session with 12 students.( Biological, Nutrition & biomedical students). In addition, two groups of genetic engineering students every Fall. The lab is also used by research project students.
