Real-Time PCR Detection System

Equipment



Real-Time PCR Detection System
Bio-Rad
CFX96 Touch

The Bio-Rad RT-q PCR uses real-time PCR to amplify and quantify the initial abundance of target DNA with accuracy and high sensitivity over a wide dynamic range. Real-time PCR/qPCR assays are used for rapid and sensitive determination and quantification of nucleic acid in various biological samples, with diverse applications such as measuring the abundance of Ammonium-Oxidizing bacteria in soils for nitrification purposes. Quantification of gene expression can also be completed by RT-qPCR by reverse transcribing RNA into cDNA to be measured.

Research Facility



Boreal Ecosystem Research Facility
Memorial University, Grenfell Campus
Corner Brook
Newfoundland and Labrador (NL)

The Boreal Ecosystem Research Initiative (BERI) laboratories are a multidisciplinary research center located on the Grenfell Campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). The purpose of the BERI labs is to facilitate multidisciplinary research in the areas of Boreal ecosystem, agriculture and environmental sciences relevant to the Atlantic region of Canada.  

The facility is divided into a suite of 4 laboratories (preprocess, extraction, molecular and analytical) that house a range of equipment relating to molecular, bio-chemical, imaging, organic inorganic and field (physical soil, air and water) analyses and techniques.

BERI welcomes collaborations or access to conduct agriculture, boreal ecosystem and environmental science based research. Such collaborators include those from industry, government agencies, and academic institutions both nationally and internationally that are using the facility to advance their various research programs.
