Science for Health
The Electronics facilities offer assistance, advice and repair for a wide variety of equipment and technologies, from electrophoresis to incubators, microscopes, microwave ovens, pH meters and peristaltic pumps.
The facilities support scientific groups requiring bespoke electronic and software-based instrumentation. Utilising up-to date technologies, employing microcontrollers and mixed signal devices we provide a complete product development lifecycle from initial specification and proof of concept to the final solution.
Electronics are also responsible for multimedia projection and Audio Visual facilities, and with a full programme of seminars and visiting speakers at the Institute, provide assistance and advice to ensure their smooth runnning.
A two day practical workshop providing basic electronics and programming techniques enabling exploration of novel research beyond what commercial apparatus may provide.
The workshop provides a design, construction and commissioning facility for bespoke instruments. This can involve new developments or modifications to existing equipment. Facilities include:
The experienced staff can manufacture quick one-off prototypes, followed by continued development and modification to produce the desired item or apparatus. A diverse range of projects have been worked on, including:
Engineering services supply internal emergency and repair services for laboratory equipment breakdown, in particular for centrifuges and incubators. Rotor inspections and pipette service/repair can also be dealt with. These services minimize downtime and costs.
