The Environmental Toxicology Research Laboratory is part of the multi-user core laboratories at JSU. "The multi-user core research laboratories and facilities and research support services at Jackson State University (JSU) were established to provide researchers with the necessary resources including equipment, technologies, and support functions to enhance research capabilities."
"The ArcturusXT™ Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) System provides an automated approach to laser microdissection of individual cells or multi-cellular structures from slides containing tissue sections or cytological samples. The ArcturusXT LCM System consists of the ArcturusXT Instrument, a computer, and the ArcturusXT operating software."
Western analysis system.
"The LAI Automated Comet Assay Analysis System (LACAAS) is a modular system of hardware and software that offers all the features and components needed for efficient collection and rapid automated analysis of large sets of fluorescent single cell comet images, as required for effective and accurate Comet Assay evaluation. The Comet Assay, also known as the Single Cell Gel Electrophoresis Assay, permits quantitative assessment of the effects of DNA damaging or apoptosis inducing agents and mechanisms in a wide variety of important target cell types. The assay also has great utility in studies of DNA repair."
